About The Providence Cotton Mill Wedding Venue

4137 Providence Mill Rd, Maiden, North Carolina 28650

Providence Cotton Mill is a positively dreamy space that dates back to the early 1800s when the area was used as an iron forge during The War of 1812. Following the war, it became all but forgotten until the site was picked for the construction of a cotton mill in 1888. For years, the mill was such a bustling place, it spurned the construction of other nearby mills. Today, the historic building combines nature with industry to provide you with a wedding venue unlike any other.

Details of the Grounds

Providence Cotton Mill is an open-air wedding facility with glassless windows that look out into the surrounding forests. Most couples choose to use the interior as their ceremony space. You’ll have partially exposed brick, high ceilings, and concrete floors. You can dress it up with blush roses or moody dark bouquets to match your vibe. The exterior provides you with a paved terrace and a flat lawn. You can use both of these options for an outdoor ceremony. 

The interior provides an amazing reception venue with plenty of space for your guests. A stage for a DJ or a live band can easily be brought in. Some nature-loving couples have chosen to have an outdoor reception beneath the sparkling bistro lights of the terrace. 

The terrace tends to be the favored spot for a cocktail hour. The area can easily accommodate high-top tables so your guests can order signature cocktails and take in the serene surroundings. 

The venue features a wing that can be used as a bridal suite or a groom’s room, so you can get comfy while putting on those finishing touches. 

No matter your party size, the venue is ready to host you! They can accommodate up to 700 guests and have specialized packages for intimate elopements. 

The interior of the building is completely open and spans two stories. Exposed brick pops out from beneath the layers of age-worn white plaster. The ceiling features raw wooden rafters with bistro lights and chandeliers. The brick exterior is ivy-draped with arched windows and cobbled walkways.
