June 28, 2018: The Business Journal
More than 260 people gathered at The Colonnade on June 28th for Triad Business Journal's Best Places to Work awards! With a fun Hawaiian theme, guests enjoyed tropical treats and pulled pork sliders. One of the most popular dishes was dubbed "Floribbean Surf & Turf." It's a fun mix of margarita grilled chicken in tequila cream sauce over lobster and shrimp infused rice!

July 28, 2018: Boles/Millisor Ceremony and Reception
"Jaime and her staff at Revolution Mill were absolutely fantastic! My husband and I got engaged in January 2017 and booked our venue in February 2017. We were recently married on July 28, 2018.
Throughout our one-and-a-half-year engagement, Jaime kept in touch with us, often checking in, and helped us plan our special day. She was friendly, hospitable, and kind from the moment we inquired about getting married at the Colonnade at Revolution Mill.
As our engagement progressed, Jaime reminded us of items that needed to be complete, sent us our updated contract(s) as we made changes, and really focused on what was important to us on our wedding day.
She provided us with multiple opportunities to attend tastings and allowed us to walk through the venue closer to our big day to get a feel of how things would work.
Jaime answered all of my emails immediately and was so easy to correspond with...Any time that Jaime saw an opportunity to help us save money, she shared it with us so that we could decide whether to pursue the suggestion.
Our food was out of this world! We received so many compliments from our guests about our menu options.
The staff was accommodating and made my husband and I feel like royalty on our wedding day.
It truly doesn’t get any better than Revolution Mill. From start to finish, Jaime made the wedding planning process easy (and stress free)... Our ceremony set-up was everything we hoped it would be and I hope these photos provide a little glimpse of what an indoor ceremony at Revolution Mill is like."

Veronica and Maisson had a beautiful indoor ceremony. They were joined by their dog as they exchanged their vows. A beautiful double rainbow was spotted in the courtyard just before the ceremony (timing?!).

August 23, 2018: Progressive Business Media Event
This creative forum featured the Triad’s enduring legacy as a center for textile, furniture-making, and manufacturing. Designed to inspire, educate and entertain, the three day long event delivered five custom-designed educational experiences, as well as excursions to savor the best food and culture North Carolina has to offer. We were delighted to be a featured stop for the Designer Experience!
Guests arrived to The Colonnade at 5p to enjoy a cocktail hour featuring local wine and beer before sitting down to a three-course family style meal. Charcuterie boards, cheese platters, and caprese salad were followed by grilled salmon, oven roasted vegetables, and pasta alcantara. For dessert, a selection of petite fancy pastries was served.
