  • We LOVED this venue! However it was slightly out of our budget! If we had a slightly larger budget we most definitely would have gone with Melrose! It’s about $5000 to rent the venue with alcohol fees at $30/pp and buffet dinner starting at $58/pp. If you have the money I would definitely consider this venue for any couple in the Raleigh/Durham area!

  • I am a little late in posting this review as I have been enjoying the memories of my son's beautiful wedding at Melrose Knitting Mill on October 13th. What a beautiful event! The venue is gorgeous and the food was delicious. One wedding guest told me it was the best wedding he had ever attended! I would not have changed a thing! It was everything I had envisioned it would be thanks to the guidance of our Southern Oak Events wedding planner, Sarah Skrobialowski and her efficient and friendly staff. Sarah had great advise and recommendations that helped with many decisions. She prepared an in depth timeline that kept everything on track and allowed me to enjoy the evening without any worries. The vendors all knew when to arrive and what to do allowing everything to run smoothly. I thought I would be packing up personal items at the end of the evening but before I had a chance Sarah handed me my car keys...everything was in my car! She was a joy to work with and I cannot thank her enough.... Read more

  • My wedding was at Melrose Knitting Mill and planned by Sarah Skrobialowski. Sarah was incredible to work with and paid attention to every small detail. She worked very hard, was extremely organized, and the wedding went perfectly. She took the time to call every vendor and ensure they were prepared. On the wedding day, she had everything prepared exactly as planned. It was clear she took a lot of pride in her work and left no stone unturned. The venue was beautiful and we got many compliments from our guests. It was a great all around experience. I would highly recommend Sarah and Melrose.

  • Melrose Knitting Mill was the perfect venue for our big day! First of all they come with a group of extremely talented and kind planners that are there with advice, help and organization throughout the entire planning process. Should out to Sarah for being the best! :) The venue itself is so beautiful and historic, you really don't have to do much to make it gorgeous. Also the food and catering staff are amazing, we had so many compliments on how smoothly everything ran and how delicious all the food was. Overall this truly was the best day of our lives and Melrose made it so!

  • The venue alone is beautiful enough to make your wedding day unforgettable for you and your guests, but the staff, food and day-of coordinators are even better. Everything for our wedding day went off without a hitch. Our coordinator Sarah made sure every little detail was taken care of and we were able to celebrate with our family and friends without a worry. It was the best day we could have ever asked for! I definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a memorable space for their big day!

  • Melrose Knitting Mill was the first AND only venue that we toured! It had everything that we had dreamed of for our wedding. From the modern-industrial look, to the romantic draping and cocktail hour space, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. Then, we met our wedding planner, Blake Morrin. Blake and the team at Melrose Knitting Mill and Southern Oak Events were beyond our expectations. From the beginning, Blake was someone that I knew I could trust throughout this entire planning process. Even months before our big day, I would text or email her questions and she was quick to reply with a positive, energetic response! They were extremely accommodating with any changes that were made and Blake became a real life super hero when we had to quickly find new photographers with just 48 hours until the wedding day! Melrose Knitting Mill was our dream wedding venue and they were able to take our wedding dreams and turn them into a reality. Highly recommend using their serv... Read more

  • I toured 10 wedding venues when trying to make a decision and Melrose Knitting Mill was the only venue that took my breath away. I was instantly in love with MKM due to its beauty and charm with the brick, exposed wood, and natural light. But beyond just the venue's beauty, the experience there was something I will never forget. The staff was impeccable and ensured that everything ran smoothly the entire evening. The food (catered by the downstairs restaurant Mulino) was phenomenal (and who says that about wedding food?!). We had the plated dinner and everyone raved about how great of a meal it was (multiple, multiple good reviews on the stuffed chicken although I didn't have it). The bartenders were over-the-top wonderful! We had 15 tables and the dance floor was a great size (never too crowded but also never empty looking). Melrose seriously exceeded all of our expectations. It was really the best night of our lives.

  • Sarah Skrobialowski is freaking amazing. She just had a baby and yet she was there 2 weeks later, helping me plan the best wedding ever imaginable. She is the master cat herder who wrangled strong personalities, the silent ninja who put out and put away all the decorations, the precise planner who wrote a 7 page timeline that kept 120 people moving at the right pace, all the meanwhile staying cool and collected. The space was also a DREAM. Even people who are notorious for being hard to please had their jaws drop when they walked in. Please please do yourself a favor and go with Melrose, it is the most painless and beautiful venue we could have hoped for

  • We got married at Melrose on July 27,2019. It was beyond dreamy and beautiful. We had to get married in the summer and wanted somewhere where we could have the ceremony inside. Melrose was perfect because during the room flip everyone went to the cocktail area downstairs while they flipped the room! The staff was efficient and kind (and kept our glasses filled all night!!). The food was INCREDIBLE. So fresh since it comes from the restaurant downstairs. We absolutely loved it and had a wonderful time!

    Thanks so much, Elysia for your kind words! It was such a joy to work with you as your coordinator! It was a beautiful day for an awesome couple :) - Steph Smith

  • Melrose Knitting Mill was absolutely the most perfect Wedding Venue!!! I looked into every downtown Raleigh venue and Melrose was just perfect. It has an enormous amount of character and charm, we got a countless number of compliments from guests on how amazing the venue was!!! It is also the perfect venue for a flip, the ceremony upstairs was beautiful and then guests were taken downstairs to the gorgeous hanging gardens and bar for cocktail hour. We loved the surprise element that after cocktail hour guests were taken back upstairs and the room was completely transformed for the reception!!! Jessica and her team at Southern Oak Events (exclusive planners for the venue) are also absolutely amazing. They know that venue inside and out and run your wedding like a well-oiled machine. They answered every question, took care of everything, and made it the most perfect, worry-free day!!! We also hired Jessica and her husband for the photobooth and it was SO perfect and fun!!! I...

  • Melrose Knitting Mill was the modern-industrial venue of our dreams. Our guests raved about how cool the venue was. The day was beautiful from start to finish. We could not be happier with the entire experience. The food was incredible, and our wedding coordinator, Jessica Tilton, made sure that the day went flawlessly. We would do it all over again without changing a thing.

  • My husband and I recently got married at The Melrose and it was absolutely incredible! Both our ceremony and reception took place in this beautiful venue and we were never disappointed. It was perfect. We worked with Blake, our coordinating genius who made sure everything stayed on track throughout the night. She was extremely reliable and ready with solutions to anything that came up amiss. Even before the big day, her down to Earth personality always made me feel relaxed and reminded me that everything would turn out just fine. The food was fantastic too! The mac and cheese in particular is to die for—our guests are still telling us how good it was! And of course the evening couldn’t have been executed so well without the amazing staff. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating with anything that we needed. I truly couldn’t have envisioned a more perfect night! THANK YOU!

  • I had my wedding at Melrose on 12/29/18 and both myself and my guests experience with Steph (our planner) and the rest of the Melrose team was amazing. Not only is it a beautiful venue but a very competent team, my wedding went very smoothly thanks to all of their help!

    Thanks so much for your review, Kaitlyn!! I LOVED working with you and getting to know you throughout your planning process. It was a beautiful wedding and we were thrilled to have you host your big day with us at Melrose! Wishing you and Barrett the very best :) -Steph

  • I cannot say enough positive things about Melrose Knitting Mill. The day my then-fiance found it online, I knew I wanted to get married there, and I was never disappointed throughout the process! The venue is truly breathtaking with its exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and gorgeous chandeliers (which can be dimmed later in the night for dancing - a feature I loved). We had our cocktail hour downstairs in the "Hanging Gardens" (essentially the exterior area of the restaurant Mulino, while the restaurant was closed). Guests loved the change in venue from the cocktail hour to the reception. There was plenty of room in the venue for our 9-piece band and 135 guests. The bar area is beautiful, the included tables and chairs are elegant, and you do not need to spend a lot of extra money on decorations because the space is so beautiful! We were even able to have late night pizza and an "afterparty" at the bar at Mulino after our wedding, which was a super fun way to end the night! We worke... Read more

  • My husband and I got married here in November 2018 and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect space for our ceremony and reception! It was the first, and last, venue that we looked at in Raleigh when we decided it was exactly what we wanted. I love history, and love the history that this building has! There are so many small details that I'm obsessed with - the chandeliers, the hardwood floors, the brick walls, the tall windows - everything is so charming and chic. The only thing I would've liked to have done differently was be able to do our ceremony outside in the courtyard, but it ended up being a beautiful space for our cocktail hour! Also, we worked with Steph Smith and she was phenomenal! I highly recommend working with her!
