Creating Historic Events for More than 30 Years

1. How do I go about touring your facilities?

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 Account Executive to answer your questions. We show our spaces Monday-Saturday.

2. What does the rental fee of the facility include?

We make it easy! Our facility rental fee includes guest tables, chairs, house linens, house centerpieces, buffet station tables and décor, all service pieces, plates, utensils, glassware for bar, set up and clean up. An Event Captain will be assigned to supervise your party from beginning to end. Your Account Executive will help you plan all the details of your party so all you need to do is show up and smile!

3. Can we do our ceremony on-site?

Yes! Both of our sites offer beautiful outdoor space for your ceremony. Indoor space is also available if needed. Our in-house Wedding 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.

4. Can we supply our own catering/alcohol?

The wonderful food and beverage is supplied by Events Catering. We have various menus to suit your tastes and budget, and are happy to customize a menu just for you.

5. Do we get to taste the food before we pick menus?

We do hold Client Receptions several times a year. So that the menus are the most current and appropriate for the season, clients are invited to attend a Reception based on their event date. Invitations are extended to (2) attendees. This is at no charge.

6. How much time do we have for our reception?

We include 4 hours for your reception and an additional 30 minutes for your ceremony. You may arrive up to 1 ½ hours prior to the start of your ceremony for photos. Vendors will have additional time to access the facility for set up and tear down. Saturdays during “peak months” do have specific day and evening time slots available. On Fridays and Sundays you may choose your time frame. Exceptions may apply on some holidays.

7. How do I go about reserving the facility and paying for my event?

We do require a deposit with your contract to confirm the space and make it yours. We offer a payment schedule for the balance of the account.

8. How many guests will your facilities accommodate?

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 hold from 100-200 guests. Ivy Hall will accommodate 150-400 guests inside the facility, and can hold over 800 when the deck is tented.

9. Am I allowed to bring outside vendors in?

Yes! We do require that DJs are selected from our Preferred List, and we are happy to suggest vendors for your other event needs. 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 Contract (confirming they have appropriate licenses and insurance) and be approved. We do not take referral fees.

10. Do you provide Wedding Cakes?

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.

11. Is there a charge for my guests to park?

Our venues are located at the Historic Roswell Mill, and each facility has plenty of complimentary parking for your guests.

12. What is the history of Roswell Mill?

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 prior to 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 rebuilt again, 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.

13. What is a Courtesy Hold?

If one of our venues seems like the perfect place for your event, we are happy to hold it for you while we do a Proposal and you review it. 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 (2-3) days to sign a contract, then the space is offered to the other party.

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.
Highly recommend!
