Introducing Madison at the Mill, an Orange, VA Wedding and Event Venue

May 11

Today’s blog is a little something different!  If you’re following along on Instagram and Facebook, you’ve seen me talking about Robert’s wedding venue in our hometown of Orange, VA, Madison at the Mill.  Since they’ve hosted Christmas parties and scholarship fundraising dances there, there’s been a lot of interest in the “party room” above the Silk Mill.  My fellow Orange natives know The Mill as the old silk mill across from Sheetz that houses the Silk Mill Grill, Roadside Chive, and Briarwood Florist, among other local businesses.

Do you like how I mentioned that you can basically have your entire wedding in this one building, from the rehearsal dinner at the Silk Mill Grill to picking up your flowers from Briarwood to having Roadside Chive cater from their office down the hall?  I just wanted to be sure you caught that. 😉  I guess if you’re reading this, you’d also have your photographer picked out, and she would be intimately familiar with your venue.  I’M JUST SAYING.

Last Fall, Robert & his family transformed the “party room” into a wedding and event venue that is KIND OF GORGEOUS.  On Halloween of 2015, they hosted the very first wedding reception there, and we’ve since hosted fundraisers, bridal showers, and more wedding receptions!  It has been so fun to see reactions to the room.  It has beautiful original hardwood floors, tons of great light (and y’all KNOW I would be picky about the light), chandeliers, a stunning bar, built in cocktail tables, and seriously . . . the loveliest bathrooms you’ve ever seen.  I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS, but the Higginbothams just know how to make great bathrooms.

I’m pretty smitten with the canvases that Liz made to line the entry hall!

The room is the perfect mix of industrial and chic with the exposed pipes and chandeliers.  And those huge windows!

Madison at the Mill is currently booking wedding receptions, bridal showers, and other events for 2016 and 2017.  To see more photos and details, please visit

You can also email, and it will probably be me that will answer you with all the details before I pass you on to Robert to schedule a tour!  😉
