Revolution Mill Greensboro Reception: Jon Mark and Elizabeth

What did the couple have to say about the planning process?

“Our wedding day was total bliss. It was amazing to see how months of planning came together in the most spectacular way. The funniest part of it all was remembering how embedded in the details we were for 9 months and all of the stress that went into that planning just melted away. Everything was perfect to us, even if it didn't go as planned.” - Elizabeth, Bride

The take-away? Enjoy your wedding day despite the tiny details. It’s YOUR day, make it amazing.

“Think about your guests! A lot of the decisions we made had to do with the flow and timing of the event. I pulled on prior experiences of weddings I was a guest at and thought about what choices were made in consideration of the guests and what weren't. Everyone will tell you that your day is all about you, and to a degree it is. But you wouldn't be where you are without the love and support of every person that will be at your wedding. They have given their time and resources to support you! So think of them when you are planning your event.” - Elizabeth, Bride

Food and Drink

While the wedding party wrapped up their photo session, the guests enjoyed refreshments and a cheese display of cheddar, swiss and pepper jack, garnished with red grapes and fresh berries, served with assorted crackers.

Dinner began with a classic tossed garden salad. Then guests enjoyed a delicious buffet of grilled chicken breast with Parmesan cream sauce, pulled pork barbeque, creamy coleslaw, fresh green beans and assorted breads.

Pepper Moon’s famous smashed potatoes completed the dinner menu.

“The BBQ was AMAZING. The mashed potatoes were killer too.” - Elizabeth & Jon Mark, Bride & Groom

The Venue

What drew Jon Mark and Elizabeth to The Colonnade for their reception?

“We had a winter wedding so we needed an indoor space that was big enough to hold 200 people! I also cared a TON about the look of the space and the ambiance it created. Revolution Mill had a wonderful rustic charm to it. I loved all the textures of the interior and the functionality of the space.” - Elizabeth, Bride

The couple also loved the floor to ceiling windows, the exposed brick, iron railings and exposed beam ceilings.... Everything!
