  • 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!!!!!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • We’ve used this venue for multiple events. From birthday parties, bridal showers and even one of my cousins weddings, it has been nothing but the best. They’ve had a few different coordinators through the years, but now they seem to have a solid staff with good leadership. Can’t speak higher about how we’re treated there!

    Thanks Joseph! We appreciate your review. And your family’s commitment to making sure your events make the most of the Mill’s beauty. Can’t wait til the next event!

  • I may come back and edit my review when my emotions over this place have settled. There was so much wrong at this venue on the day of my wedding that I can not even begin to cover it. Everything leading up to the wedding was wonderful and caused us to really trust the folks at Loray. Ultimately, it was all for naught. The room was not set up as promised despite us meeting and drawing up several room layouts. Our appetizers were placed in a location where no one could see them and when my mother arrived, the guests did not even know they were there to eat. No one from the venue directed them to partake. We asked for two high-chairs but received only one. There is a required caterer (run by the same folks) at this location and they were completely unprepared. Dinner was almost an hour late and there were not even plates on the tables by the time guests began arriving. There were several issues with the bar as well. I could continue and may come back at a later time to do so. The botto... Read more

  • Enjoyed the venue and working with Donna. The buffalo chicken dip was cold. The fried chicken was too hard. The tasting of the food was a lot better. I wish you would allow people to bring in their own food. The space is awesome! It was my mother's 70th birthday party not a wedding.

    Hey Sonja! Thanks so much for your kind words and honest review! We’re looking into all of the options for outside catering and will post updates if our policies change. Until then, we hope to have you back in soon for another event!

  • Loray Mill was the perfect place for our special day! Having the ceremony and reception all at one location really eliminated stress. The staff was there day of and throughout the night. I never worried about one tiny detail. Wish we could do it all over again!

    Hey Leah! Thanks so much for your review. Your event was beyond spectacular! We wish we could relive it too! Thanks again for everything! We wish you guys years of happiness!
