MEET SOME OF THE MOST TALENTED VENDORS IN THE INDUSTRY

We get it, you haven’t done this before! Lucky for you, we’ve hosted countless weddings + events. We are happy to connect you with the best vendors in the wedding industry – DJs, florists, caterers, photographers, videographers, live bands and more!

We have been fortunate enough to work alongside these amazing vendors and absolutely love them (and we know you will too)! This is not a list of exclusive vendors, you as the client are welcome to bring in any vendor you choose.

 

Paper Mill on The Landing allows you bring in your own vendors if they are licensed and professional and we won't charge you any hidden vendor fees.

Paper Mill does not profit in any way from this list and do not assume any responsibility for any vendor hired.

  • What is your maximum capacity?
    Our space can accommodate up to 200 guests.
  • How long do we have the venue for?
    You will have full and exclusive access to the venue from 9:00 AM - 11:59 PM.
  • Can we host both our ceremony and reception at your location?
    Absolutely! Our flexible event space can be transformed to suit your needs. Whether you envision an indoor ceremony followed by a reception, or just the ceremony or just reception, we can make that happen!
  • Are there any nearby accommodation options for guests?
    Yes, indeed! There are many nearby hotels within walking distance for you and your guests.
  • Do you have a bridal suite/getting ready space?
    Of course! We have two getting ready suites conveniently located on opposite sides of the venue for you and your partner to get ready in!
  • Do you have any preferred vendors we can work with?
    Yes, we do! We've curated a list of trusted vendors who share our commitment to excellence. From photographers to florists, we'll connect you with the best in the industry to ensure your wedding day is nothing short of spectacular. *You are able to bring in your own vendors without any hidden vendor fees. You do NOT have to select vendors from our Recommended Vendor List.
  • Can we have our rehearsal at your venue too?
    We offer a discount for day before set-up/rehearsals if the day before your event is still available 60 days before your event. If our space is not available the day before your event, many wedding parties rehearse offsite at their dinner location, a church, or even someones backyard. Many times parties rehearse the morning of the wedding and the bride doesn't attend. She knows where she walks and who is meeting her at the end of the aisle, so she remains in the bridal suite while everyone else runs through a short practice.
  • Will a staff member be present during my event?
    Yes, we will have an Event Day Venue Manager (EDM) present during your event. There is a staff member that is onsite the entire day to ensure everything runs smoothly with the venue. They are NOT a coordinator. Their first priority is to make sure that the venue is in tip-top shape, but they will be there to help and answer questions as needed!
  • What kind of events can you host in your space?
    Our space is incredibly versatile and can accommodate a wide range of events. From weddings and receptions to corporate gatherings, birthday parties, and everything in between, we're equipped to host virtually any type of event you have in mind.
  • How long can we party?
    Certainly! While we want you to enjoy every moment of your celebration, we do ask that music be turned off by 10:30 PM on Friday's and Saturday's and by 10:00 PM on Sunday's or weekdays in consideration of our neighbors and local noise regulations. Your rental period concludes at 11:59 PM, granting you plenty of time to clean up everything following your event.
  • Who is responsible for set-up and tear down?
    Absolutely! We're here to make your event as seamless as possible. Our team will take care of setting up the tables and chairs according to your customized floor plan. We offer various floor plan options that you can personalize to suit your vision for your event. You are responsible for disposing of all trash in the designated receptacles within the venue. Additionally, please ensure that all items brought in for decoration, such as linens and decor, are removed from the premises. Chairs should be neatly stacked on top of the tables at the end of your event. While we do expect the property to be left in a similar condition to how it was found, excluding standard cleaning services, we have professional cleaners who conduct thorough cleaning after each event. This way, you can focus on enjoying your celebration while we take care of the rest!
  • Can I or a family friend do the catering?
    While we typically recommend professional catering services for a smoother experience, we understand if you have a specific vision in mind. If you choose to proceed with your own catering or enlist the help of a family friend, we can accommodate your request with the following guidelines: An additional $500 refundable damage deposit will be required. A certificate of liability insurance provided by the client is mandatory. This can be obtained through various means, including a homeowners policy extension (subject to carrier approval), an event policy, or a separate general liability policy. **All of the above requirements would also apply to an uninsured or unlicensed caterer. These measures ensure that your event runs smoothly and safely while allowing you to bring in your own food. If you have any further questions or would like to discuss this in more detail, please feel free to reach out.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    We encourage anyone not to book until they are certain of the date and price. We do not offer refunds for cancellations.
  • Do you allow date transfers?
    Any date transfer request is at the sole discretion of Paper Mill. If allowed, a transfer fee may be required.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    The first payment is due 5 days after the contracts and invoice are sent. The second payment is due 180 days (6 months) before your event. The second payment can be split into multiple payments but would need to be paid in full at the 180 day deadline.
  • DO YOU ALLOW ALCOHOL?
    Yes, we have a 3-way liquor permit. Because we are licensed, state laws require our guests to use our alcohol services. We cannot allow a third party to serve at your event, We do handle all security and licensed bartenders for your event which makes it easier on you.
  • CAN WE TAKE LEFTOVER ALCOHOL HOME?
    State law prohibits us from allowing any guest to take alcohol home from our bar.
  • WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT BAR PACKAGE WE WANT?
    Angie, our Bar Manager, typically reaches out 2 months before your event to see what you are thinking for bar services. If you are ready to discuss it sooner than 2 months before, you can reach out before!
  • WHEN DO WE PAY FOR THE BAR?
    Your final bar payment is due 2 weeks before your event.
  • HOW LONG CAN MY BAR SERVICE LAST?
    We open bar services at ceremony time so the bar is ready to go as soon as you say “I do!”. You may have up to 7 hours of bar services and bar must be closed no later than 10:30pm. This is something to keep in mind when deciding your ceremony time!
  • CAN WE ADD A LA CARTE ALCOHOL TO OUR BAR PACKAGE?
    Yes, you may add a la carte alcohol onto any of our per head bar packages. However, you may NOT add on any a la carte alcohol to the Bar for Purchase option.
  • CAN WE BRING OUR OWN SPECIAL BOTTLE OF WINE OR ALCOHOL FROM HOME FOR A TOAST?
    Under our 3-way liquor license we cannot allow ANY outside alcohol on the premises at any time.
  • CAN WE DO A SIGNATURE DRINK?
    Yes! Our Bar Manager, Angie, will work through signature drink options with you to pick the perfect drink for your event! We do not charge anything for you to add on signature drinks! *Guests can be charged for signature drinks if you pick alcohol that is not included in your selected bar package.
