Revolution Mill Greensboro Wedding: Lilly and Austin


Lilly and Austin are middle school sweethearts who married in the Courtyard at The Colonnade at Revolution Mill in Greensboro on October 21, 2018. Their wedding was filled with personal touches, Bohemian chic designs and lots of dreamy greenery. We are so excited to share their wedding ceremony and reception with you!

The Proposal

“We were driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway and decided to go walk around at Chetola Resort (they have a lake/walking trail). We went out onto the gazebo and it was all lit up with string lights so we stopped to take a picture. I was facing one way because Austin wanted to make sure the camera would get us in the shot and when I turned around he was on one knee! It was intimate and romantic and everything I could have wanted in a proposal.” - Lilly, Bride

Decor and Vendors

There was lots of lush greenery to compliment the neutral colors and autumn-toned bouquets to create a natural boho feel. Lilly designed the table numbers, centerpieces, and assembled all the decor for their wedding day.

“A personal favorite was the arbor we had at the altar that was covered in beautiful fall flowers and greenery thanks to The Green Bee Floral Designs and The Prettiest Pieces. We also had mismatched rugs lining the aisle and it was seriously dreamy.” - Lilly, Bride

The Menu

Everyone enjoyed the Southern style barbeque meal prepared by our in-house caterer, Peppermoon Catering. The couple declared it “delicious!” and mentioned they had several guests comment on how much they enjoyed it.

The Venue

What drew the couple to The Colonnade? They loved the exposed brick and large windows and may have been known to say they are “what dreams are made of” … Love it!

“Initially, we were drawn to the historical and industrial vibe it had. Once we visited, we both fell in love with the architecture and the set up The Colonnade offered. The Colonnade offered everything we were looking for in terms of ceremony, reception, catering needs and bar set up. I am also born and raised from Greensboro and Austin moved here at a young age so it just made it really special to be married in the city.” - Lilly, Bride
