The Olde Mill Inn, Basking Ridge, New Jersey is fast becoming one of the new favorites for 21st Century Digital Photography. We are photographing an increasing number of weddings at this classic venue, and as of the end of 2012 we already have 6 weddings booked for 2013 at both the hotel facility and the Grain House restaurant, and a few more brides “on the fence” regarding our services here.
It was a number of years ago that we discovered the old world charm of this historic venue when we photographed a 30th wedding anniversary for a family visiting from Sweden, and since then Neil has nurtured a professional relationship with both the management and most importantly to us, the staff. Why the staff you might ask; well they are the people on the ground when it comes to your event and we have found them to be incredibly efficient at solving last minute problems for you as a guest and also 21st Century Digital as an outside vendor. Also the staff actually love their jobs; yes it is true, they have told me this themselves and there were no managers in sight.
As a result of this partnership we have been commissioned by the management to photograph many of their corporate rooms and facilities, some of which are currently featured on the Olde Mill website. Also we have on several occasions been invited on to participate in bridal shows held at the Inn.
The Olde Mill Inn features great event spaces, such as the Grand Ballroom, unique rooms once visited by our forefathers in the 18th century now converted into bridal suites, a small Library and tended gardens; great for outdoor ceremonies.
Business events also receive the ‘Old Mill’ classic attention by offering over 16,000 square feet of meeting space in 18 private rooms that can accommodate up to 500 people or as little as five. This place might be old world but the management has integrated technology into the right places which in some cases enhances the old world appeal of the facility; things like allergy-free rooms. The latest large flat screen TV’s are in keeping with the feel of the place and somehow manage not to overwhelm the Inn’s central theme. Even the smooth running elevators somehow retain a less modern charm.
