  • We got married at Melrose Knitting Mill on July 3rd which would have easily been a day a lot of people wouldn’t have wanted to work - but literally everyone working at MKM the night we got married everyone that was involved was AMAZING! In a post covid world it’s not surprising to receive subpar service but our experience at MKM was anything but that! Literally 3/4 of our guests commented to us how amazing the staff was at our event - and I can only second that. As a bride and groom it’s easy to get caught up in the moment but the staff at MKM ensured we were well fed, hydrated, and taken care of all night. I would recommend any event there again and again!

  • We loved having our wedding ceremony and reception at Melrose Knitting Mill! The venue is beautiful, including the downstairs area for the cocktail hour. The staff was great to work with- super responsive and made sure everything flowed perfectly on the day of. The food was delicious too! They were super flexible with the changes we had to make due to the pandemic.

  • I got married at Melrose Knitting Mill in October of 2020 and started the process back in February (yes, pre-COVID).  From the moment my fiance and I toured Melrose, we knew it was the place we wanted to get married immediately!  Once we booked, we were connected with Blake Morrin as our coordinator, and who I would soon learn to be a great friend and an absolute lifesaver!  As everyone knows, COVID rocked our world and countless weddings have been postponed or canceled.  Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, it was clear to us that it would still be around for our wedding.  It was an extremely challenging time trying to plan our wedding with all of the uncertainty but with the HUGE help of Blake (and Phase 3), we were able to have the wedding of our dreams!  They were so accomodating and even thought of a Plan B for us if we were unable to have our wedding as originally planned.  Blake was always there for me day and night, no matter the number of questions I had, ...

  • Melrose is not only an incredibly beautiful venue, but they also have amazing staff! Our coordinator, Steph, took care of every detail with care and attention to how we envisioned our big day. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all went beautifully, and everyone was incredibly helpful. Our experience was even better than we’d imagined. Highly recommend!

  • Our wedding planner, Blake, made our pandemic wedding at Melrose Knitting Mill feel more magical than even our original plan. The venue is absolutely stunning and the food is our favorite in all of North Carolina and our wedding meal did not disappoint. Our guests raved about the ambiance, staff and food!

    Thank you, Liz! We are so happy that Blake and our Melrose Knitting Mill staff were able to make your wedding a beautiful day.

  • 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 is just an amazing venue. From the cocktail hour to the reception, the venue speaks for itself. Great location in downtown Raleigh and the staff was amazing. Our wedding planner, Sarah, was amazing and handled everything on our wedding day so we had nothing to worry about.
