  • 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.

  • The team at Loray Mill is fantastic! Donna, Tiffany and owner Byron went way above and beyond for the wedding we had there on June 30, 2018. I started working with them over 2 years ago; Donna and Tiffany are a great duo and will do anything from offering suggestions of what they've seen work and not work, to floor layouts, to room options and anything else in between. They are timely in their responses and answered my 1000 questions that I had. The day of Donna was there to greet me and Tiffany was there as my contact through the night. They set all the tables with linens, silverware, glassware and helped me light the candles before cocktail hour. The biggest win of the night was when too many guests showed up then what was RSVP'd and Byron and his team didn't bat an eye! Once the issue was noticed, they quickly went into action during the cocktail hour, rolled out 3 more tables and matching chairs and linens to boot! After dinner, they quickly went back to work to remove those tab... Read more

  • Where do we begin? Well, we started at the Assembly Room in uptown Charlotte, however, they shut down on us... unexpectedly 70 days before our wedding. After panicking, we stumbled across Loray Mill online. Our event ended up being better than our original venue, the owner and staff was so easy to work with and definitely helped ease the pain of losing our original venue. Loray Mill is a gorgeous space, industrial spacious filled with natural light. Our guests are still raving about the wedding and reception and we are forever grateful! the owner even left his dinner early to come and say goodbye to us during our sparkler exit! Joy!!!!!

  • What an awesome venue. The guests were intrigued and impressed with the building’s history and charm. The staff was accommodating, attentive, professional, and friendly. One of our guests said that the wedding was intimate, classy, warm, inviting and genuine. (What a compliment for all involved)

  • My experience at Loray Mill was phenomenal. They provided almost everything we needed other than the decor itself. It was comforting, as the bride was from out of town, to have such a hands on staff. The venue was affordable and Byron was great.

  • We had our Mom's 80th birthday party here. I cannot express how GREAT it was! Everything was set up nicely and the food was fabulous. Some of the guest even got to tour the apartments and grounds. All the ladies are so easy to work with and very flexible. I would highly recommend this venue for any event. Thanks so much!

  • We have worked with Honesteads for the last two years and they have been remarkable! From the wonderful food to the personal service provided, we couldn’t have been happier. We look forward to working with them again next year!

  • Victory Farm held our annual Denim & Diamonds Gala fundraiser at Loray Mill. Each of the staff was MORE than accommodating!! They made our event beautiful and easy. Everyone loved the venue!! Such a beautiful and unique place. The food was amazing and they did EVERYTHING! Even the set-up and flow was ideal for our guests. It was perfect and we plan to hold the event in the same location each year! Thank you Homestead!

  • My experience with this event company was completely HORRIBLE until the day of my event. They changed staff five times during the time I booked with them. They never updated me to staff changes which led to almost all my emails being unanswered. When I did get a hold of them they were rude and never gave straight answers, promising me things and then backing out on it. The day of our event ended up going off fine, but needless to say it was a TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE until then. My ceremony room was never even finished as promised when I booked in jan 2019 — so 2020 ladies don’t count on the speakeasy being done. only book here if you want to micromanage your whole event and their entire staff. Future brides: do your research and read their contract thoroughly. It’s a beautiful venue and what I wanted aesthetically — but the process up to the day was truly horrible. I attended another event there and they were serving broken glasses with dirty plates! Every event there see... Read more

  • All of the pictures are gorgeous but….if I could relive my wedding day all over again, I would NOT choose the Loray Mill as my wedding venue. We booked the venue roughly 9 months before our wedding date. At first, my husband and I fell in love with this venue, it was absolutely breathtaking, and it was affordable when we looked at the pricing packages that they included. There are several different options to choose from as far as packages are considered to ensure that it fits in everyone’s wedding budget. I truly loved that there was a place for the bridal team to get ready and that the newlyweds were able to stay in the suite the night of their wedding (included in all packages when we booked the venue). I also loved the wedding coordinator at the venue, she was very honest and stuck to her word. Everything was great until I received word that the event coordinator was accepting a new position. I would set up meetings periodically to check in with the venue and see what would be ... Read more

  • Beware of this company: Their employee Todd admitted to me that they delete reviews, and it is true. If you google "homestead events at loray mill" they have zero reviews, which does not seem possible. I just had a wedding reception at this venue this past Sunday, and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. I would never have another event or ever do business with anyone from this facility again. They promised so many things, then completely changed this the day of our reception, which completely blinded side me, my wife, and our families. When we arrived the day of the reception, the main event hall was completely dirty and had several puddles of water that leaked from the air conditioner. The back room that is attached to the main event hall was filled with rocks and cleaning equipment. Which the staff refused to clean, so I was forced to do it myself. The incorrect color chairs were put out at each table. The entire hall smelled awful and was extremely dirty. Sta... Read more
