  • Loray Mill is the most gorgeous place ever. Large Windows and Tall Brick Walls. For the price, it's definitely worth every dollar. The caterer provided an amazing entrée and the appetizers were the best (Watermelon Feta and Shrimp and Grits). Originally, we had set our date on May 2020 but Covid19 hit which changed our plans completely. Caleb understood our situation and we rescheduled it easily. The best part is that Byron let us keep our contract the exact same but with new dates. As months goes by, Yaz and Caleb kept us in the loop and provided us the best service ever. They were able to setup on time, provide warm meals, and assist us on anything we needed on short notice. They took precautions with temperature checks and seating 6 per table and separating the dance floor in the other room. The Grand Hall was very large where it felt comfortable to host a reception with 90 guests. They also provided us a beautiful apartment for the bride and groom on the wedding nig... Read more

  • First of all, this venue has so much meaning to us. It is where my fiancé's grandparents met back when it was an old mill. Second, Caleb is the literal best person. He is responsive and so helpful! Everything with COVID has made wedding planning difficult, but not with him or the Loray Mill. We are beyond excited for our special day and to work with Caleb more. We couldn't be more thankful or happy!

  • Our venue was selected before our move states away. Though management has changed hands a couple times, we have always been able to keep in contact and visit the venue whenever we’re in town. Caleb and his team has made the planning and communication so easy. Planning a wedding 5 hours away is hard when you can’t put your vision to work, but Caleb has helped with the stress and uneasiness. We’re very glad that he has taken a position there. My fiancé and i are excited to make our dreams come true at Loray.

  • We have booked Loray because it is the most inclusive for the price!! Working with Emily has been great so far. Loray has been very accommodating and open to us touring as many times as we need to plan our day perfectly.

  • We inquired in late January 2020 for a date in April 2020 due to a cancellation from our previous venue. We did our walkthrough and signed by the first week in February. We were unable to keep our wedding in April due to Covid. Caleb worked with us while we got up with our vendors to compare dates. We were moved to November 14, 2020. Let me tell you, they did an amazing job working with us. What a crazy year it has been and it was so refreshing to have something go PERFECT. We are over the moon so impressed by the staff at Loray Mills/Homestead Events. Caleb, Yazmin, Byron and all the staff went above and beyond to make our day go by smoothly.

  • Although we had to push back our wedding, the staff at Loray mill has been our fairy god mothers through this whole process. They have been extremely helpful and considerate and just want the best for my fiancé and I through COVID. This has been a trying year for everyone but the staff at Loray mill have made us feel like through all the downs in 2020 our wedding is the most important thing to them. We can wait for all of them to be there and celebrate when we finally do tie the knot.

  • Loray Mills is such a beautiful spot. The details are phenomenal. From the rustic brick touches, the huge open windows and the addition of twinkly lights its a dream come true. Not to mention the amazing staff they have on board. This venue is sure to please any couple and impress many guests.

  • I loved this venue space, however the week of the wedding i got a call from the caterer that they had little to no information for me on file. I was a little frantic, as i was told the venue space would be ready for us when we arrived. I’m lucky i have some amazing family that got there early and helped set up tables, chairs, linens and decorations. It was all around chaotic, and unprofessional. At one point during our wedding, we had a couple police officers show up looking for the owner of the space. Overall, i know they were going through changes in staff, and I’m really disappointed that we kind of got the short end of the stick. My family came through for me, and we ended up having a wonderful night, but i wouldn’t recommend having an event here, as they are very unorganized at the moment.

    responded with the following comments.

    I APPRECIATE YOUR FEEDBACK. YOU HAD PURCHASED A MICRO PACKAGE AND HAD A LOT OF EXTRAS THROWN IN AT NO CHARGE! YOUR FAMILY SPOKE WITH US AND ASKED THAT THINGS BE SET UP ACCORDING TO THEM AND WE WAITED TILL THEY WERE PRESENT TO FINISH THE SETUP WITH THESE PACKAGES YOU WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DECOR, HOWEVERWE HELPED GET EVERYTHING TOGETHER INCLUDING LOANING SEVERAL ITEMS TO YOUR FAMILY TO COMPLETTE THYE DECOR. THE POLICE OFFICERS WERE THERE FOR SECURITY THAT WE PROVIDED AT NO COST TO YOU. YOUR WEDDING WENT OFF WITHOUT ANY ISSUES AND WE WERE MORE THAN ACOMADATING AND I APOLOGIZE YOU FELT THAT THINGS WERE DISORGANIZED BUT THE MICRO PACKAGES STARTED AT $999 AND INCLUDED CATERING AND WE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND! YOUR FAMILY WAS WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH AND IT IS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTING THAT YOU FELT THIS WAY AS AGAIN EVERYONE WAS VERY HAPPY AND NO ONE EVER ADDRESSSED ANY CONCERNS WITH ME OR THE STAFF.

  • The details of this building give it so much character. This venue doesn't really even need any decor added for your special day - the exposed brick walls and tall windows and hanging lights above are perfect as is!
