We are happy to set up a personal tour just, for you! We work by appointment so you may have the undivided attention of our Sales Team to answer your questions. We show our spaces Monday-Saturday.
We make it easy! Our facility rental fee includes guest tables, chairs, house linens, house centerpieces, all serving pieces, plates, utensils, glassware for the bar, set up, and clean up. An Event Captain will be assigned to supervise your party from beginning to end. Your Account Manager will help you plan all of the details of your party so all you need to do is show up and smile!
Yes! Both of our sites offer beautiful outdoor space for your ceremony. Indoor space is also available if needed. Our in-house Ceremony Coordinator will help you plan your ceremony, run your rehearsal, and be there on your big day! We have several arches, columns, and other decorative items for your use. A separate ceremony fee does apply.
The wonderful food and beverage is exclusively supplied by Events Catering. We have various menus to suit your tastes, and are happy to customize a menu just for you.
Yes! We do hold Client Receptions multiple times a year. These are our tasting events where booked couples/clients from a certain season come, taste the food, meet the staff, and experience how we operate in an actual event setting. Invitations are extended to (2) attendees.
We include 4 hours for your reception and an additional 30 minutes for your ceremony. You may arrive up to 2 hours before the start of your ceremony for photos. Vendors will have 3 hours before the start of the event to access the facility for set up and 1 hour immediately following the end of the event for tear down.
We do require a deposit with your contract to confirm the space and make it yours. The remaining balance will be split into equal payments and scheduled from the point of signing until the Monday before the event.
The amount of seating varies depending on the event (if you need space for a dance floor, what kind of meal service you are offering, etc.). The Roswell Mill Club will accommodate 100-180 guests. Ivy Hall will accommodate 150-250 guests in one room, 350 when using up and downstairs, and 800 when the deck is tented.
Yes! Our Vendor List highlights people we have worked with for many years, who know our buildings, and treat our clients with great care. Should you want to use someone not on our list, they must just sign a Vendor Agreement Form (confirming they have appropriate licenses and insurance) and be approved. We do not take referral fees, nor do we charge clients who use vendors not on our list.
We allow you to bring in the cake of your choice, and we will cut and serve it at no charge to you. We can recommend many fine bakers in the area.
Our venues are located at the Historic Roswell Mill, and each facility has and ample amount of complimentary parking for your guests.
This building is a unique and cherished piece of Southern history. Located on Vickery Creek, it was built in 1838 by Roswell King. The Mill became a vital part of the South’s early cotton industry before the Civil War. During the Civil War, Mill workers produced Confederate officer’s uniforms that were known as “Roswell” Grey. General Sherman destroyed the Mill on his march to the sea in 1864, but it was rebuilt in 1882. It was destroyed, again, by a lightning strike. The Mill was once more rebuilt and continued in operation until July 1975. The final order commissioned from the Mill was ordered by First Lady Jackie Kennedy for The Lincoln Bedroom. The Mill was reopened as a special event facility in the early 1990s.
If one of our venues seems like the perfect place for your event, we are happy to hold it for you at no obligation while we put together a cost sheet and proposal for you to review. This hold gives you the right of first refusal for up to (10) days, and then the space is released automatically. If during this time another client wants the venue, you are given (24-48) hrs to sign a contract and put down the deposit.
From start to finish, it was wonderful.
Everyone was so helpful and worked hard to ensure every little detail was handled. We got a ton of compliments on how delicious the food was, and also heard that the bartenders were great. The venue itself is so lovely…really is the perfect venue, especially if you are looking for a mix of nature and indoors. Ivy Hall can be made to look rustic, vintage or modern – lots of options.
