After knowing each other since 5th grade, Alexandra and Jordan were married on a beautiful sunny afternoon on May 18, 2019 in the courtyard at The Colonnade. Because of her past experience working in the event industry, Alex had a clear vision of what was most important for their day.
Things kicked off on Friday with their ceremony rehearsal followed by a rehearsal dinner at Kau (right on the Revolution Mill campus!). Saturday was filled with getting ready, saying “I do” and dancing the night away! We loved getting to know this couple and partnering with them to create many special memories.
“If I could give this venue more than 5 stars I would!! This met and exceeded every single expectation I ever had. There is not a single bad thing I would say. Beautiful, elegant, romantic, and fun. There is something for every bride and every groom. The fact that it has a beautiful outdoor space just as nice as the inside is a true PLUS. Truly the best decision I made! The staff at The Colonnade at Revolution Mill was extremely attentive, loving, and caring. I will be recommending this venue to anyone and everyone.”

The Venue & Décor
When asked what initially drew the couple to The Colonnade, Alex mentioned the fact that we have both indoor and outdoor spaces… and also that the venue practically “decorated itself.”
The couple chose an outdoor ceremony in the courtyard. The decor consisted of dusty rose, lots of greenery and gold accents. Why did Alex and Jordan choose these colors? … they matched the Bridesmaids dresses! While Alex and Jordan were having photos done after the ceremony, the guests made use of our outdoor space during cocktail hour. They were kept entertained with an outdoor bar, passed hors d’oeuvres and patio games.
While the guy got ready in The Lounge, Alex chose to take advantage of our newly finished Suite for her finishing touches. We are so happy that we can provide this convenient space on site for getting ready and photos, rather than having to travel over in your dress. Better yet, use of this space is included in your venue rental fee!
Food & Drinks
The couple wanted to wow their 165 guests with seasonal and delicious food and drink! They opted for passed hors d’oeuvres of:
Cheddar Biscuits with Ham, Granny Smith Apples and Honey Mustard
Bacon-wrapped Sweet Potatoes
The dinner buffet included:
Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Mandarin Oranges, Goat Cheese, Almonds, and Blood Orange Vinaigrette
Bourbon and Pecan Coated Chicken Breast (the couple’s favorite!!)
Grilled Flank Steak with Pommery Mustard Sauce
Carolina Wild Rice
Everyone enjoyed a decadent dessert table filled with cake and goodies after dinner.
