Kind Words


“Where to start?! I can’t tell you both how perfect our wedding day was, from the staff to the venue to the food, everything was perfect. I wish I could do that entire weekend/day over and over again! Every single person that attended has been raving about the entire venue, and I am not sure if they are just saying this, but the general consensus was it was the best wedding that everyone had been to! And that is because of y’all, seriously. The food was off the chain, SO GOOD, and the entire staff was so friendly. I even talked to some that night, and they all genuinely seemed to be having as much fun as I was, but they were working!! 

The process of planning the wedding was relaxed and smooth, thanks to you! You made the planning so much easier by working with me consistently and following up with me on a routine basis and answering all the questions (even some dumb I’m sure) I had whenever I had them. I genuinely enjoyed planning my wedding, and I haven’t talked to many people that do…but I firmly believe because of you (and our many inside jokes) it was a fun and very exciting process! I was sad for it to be over, because I don’t have an excuse to call anymore!!haha jk. THANK YOU for everything, you are the!
Thank you for meeting with us from the start! Your story is such a good one to tell, and you pulled us in on day one on how you have grown with your business and expanded over the years. We had so many people asking us the story on Empire Mills, and I loved telling them about you and share the info you had told us. You and your entire team have done an awesome job with that venue, and I can’t tell you how many compliments we received and I wanted you to know. Also, THE FOOD. Please pass along to anyone that was working the kitchen and your chef a huge THANK YOU. Everyone said that was hands down the BEST FOOD they have ever had at a wedding (which I knew that but i love they said it haha). Also, please pass along thanks for your team for the amazing customer service they provided that night. They were great! 
I could go on and on about all of the great things.
THANKS AGAIN, y’all are the best!”

There are almost no words as to how PERFECT and wonderful this place and people are. From every detail, timeline, decoration, they had answers for everything and were very organized and professional through the entire process. Not to mention how incredibly beautiful the venue is. I have gotten so many compliments on the cleanliness, tastiness, and beauty of our wedding. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing and would recommend to ANYONE!

My husband and I had our wedding at Empire Mills and we’re so glad we did! The staff at Empire Mills is so very professional and helpful. One of the themes I’ve heard over and over again from our wedding guests was that the food was AMAZING! I loved having our wedding in such a historically rich venue. We can’t recommend Empire Mills and Hallie Janes Catering enough!

This is hands down one of the most beautiful and unique wedding venues in Georgia. Hallie and her team go above and beyond to make your dream come true and you cannot beat what they have to offer! The setting is so romantic, throw in historical charm with authentic architectural detail and you have the perfect space to host your dream wedding! My husband and I feel extremely honored and lucky to break in Empire Mills for years and years of beautiful weddings to come!

What an AWESOME VENUE!!! We attended a wedding here to ring in the new year and all i can say is wow! The food was great, I mean great! The outdoor fire pits were warm, but more importantly the bartenders and wait staff were very very nice and professional. Awesome Venue with soo much charm makes it a perfect spot to celebrate a wedding!

The entire wedding weekend at Empire Mills for my son and his bride was absolutely phenomenal! We held both the Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Reception here during the weekend of July 7/8, 2017. Hallie Jane and her entire staff were extremely professional, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable….and just a joy to work with . This beautiful, historical venue is like no other ….the reception had over 300 guests, and Empire Mills accommodated everyone perfectly. Everything flows very well for guests moving around, the acoustics inside for the band were wonderful, and the AC was wonderful for this hot July weekend. The menu choices were even more delicious than what many upscale restaurants serve- and it was all served and presented first class. I can’t say enough about Empire Mills and our guests said so also, many times over. Thank you, Hallie Jane and the entire Empire Mills team for making this Wedding Weekend for Bo, Ansley, our guests, and both of our families just spectacular!!

As a wedding photographer, I get to see tons of venues, and I can honestly say that Empire Mills is hands down one of the BEST I’ve experienced! I photographed a wedding there last month, and it was a DREAM. I was overwhelmed by the amount of gorgeous backdrops and photo locations. I’d describe the feel as rustic, elegant, and romantic. Unlike many venues, Empire Mills doesn’t limit you… You can really make your day whatever you want it to be. I cannot recommend more highly!!

-Claire Diana (Wedding Photographer)


We highly recommend Empire Mills! This venue was so unique and beautiful, and the staff were so accommodating down to the very last minute! Our wedding was an absolute dream; more than we ever could have hoped for, and the food was phenomenal! Empire Mills will always hold a special place in our hearts

 -Macki McHugh (Bride)


We had our company Christmas party there and it was fantastic. The venue was nicely decorated, the wait staff were cordial. All we really had to do was show up. It was a wonderful experience, one that I hope to repeat. From the planning to the execution, it was wonderful.

-LaToya Davdison-Perez (Guest)


Empire Mills has the best staff ever!!! The venue is hands down beautiful! However, the event staff made our day great! They were so helpful and kind. The food was out of this world, our guest were calling the next day to see if we had any leftovers! If we had a chance to go back and do anything differently, we would not change a thing about our venue.

-Kimberley S (Bride)


Beautiful venue!! Everything about our day flowed wonderfully. So many places on the property for pictures and the need for decorations was very minimal with how beautifully they’ve restored the property. Wouldn’t want to cover up the natural beauty of the brick and exposed steel work! I would recommend this venue to anyone in a heartbeat!
