  • It has taken us a week to decide whether or not we wanted to write this review. Last Friday, June 26, 2020, we were originally scheduled to be married at The Old Mill. As everyone is aware, the final PA counties went green on the 26th. Being faced with making a decision weeks in advance of that, we felt it best to cancel as we wanted to protect our family and friends and the Old Mill had limited dates available (unless we wanted to postpone for a significant amount of time) and we had selected this venue specifically for the outdoor spaces at this time of year. Through that decision, regardless of pre-covid contracts, we had hoped that businesses would be reasonable in their approach to working with people who were already faced with such upsetting circumstances. All other vendors we had contracted with for our original date were flexible and accommodating in providing refunds, particularly if they could not offer us future options that met the expectations we had originally agreed upo...

    Hello Megan, Thank for taking the time to share your review. While we understand that your reasoning for leaving the review is because you are upset you did not have your non-refundable deposits returned, we feel as though it is very unfair that you would make a blanket statement that we are not flexible and not professional with couples dealing with COVID-19 just because you feel as though you were entitled to a return of your deposits. As you know, we have a non-transfer policy outlined at the time of booking. This means that as a standard, deposits are non-transferable to another date in the event of a postponement. We completely revised our policy for events that were impacted due to COVID-19. All deposits paid for both the venue and catering would transferred to the new date. There is no restriction on when that new date can be (ie later that year or even into 2022). All quoted pricing remains and would be honored for your new event date and there are no postponement fees. We also revised our cancellation policy, which you failed to mention and we find unfair. By contract, there are also additional financial obligations that are required in the event of a cancellation. Again, we revised this policy for events that were impacted due to COVID-19. We waived all additional financial obligations as outlined in your contract in the event that the client cancels. We feel it important to mention that the deposits that you are required to pay are minimal in comparison to the final event cost. A $400.00 deposit for the venue and $2,000.00 for catering (paid over a series of small deposits-not all at once). The $2,000.00 in catering deposits are retainers covering our time spent since November 2018 (in your case) on your event. Even in the event of a cancellation, our team members deserve to be compensated for their time spent planning, corresponding, meeting. We DO NOT require clients to pay half of their event total up front, not even 25% as most catering companies do. This is a point we find important to mention in the context of your review, as again, it is misleading and paints a very inaccurate picture. You were very aware at the time of cancellation that your deposits were non-refundable, stating that you understood that you stood to lose the money. It wasn't until your event date came, 3 months after the time of cancellation, that we received an email from you on June 26th that you feel as though your money should now be returned because looking back you wouldn't have been able to make accomodations with dress fittings, etc. Your entire event was planned at the time of cancellation, so from a catering and venue perspective we had done all of the planning. Any final meetings to cover last minute questions, etc.. could have easily been accomplished via zoom or phone consultations. It's very confusing to our team why we received multiple emails from you where you stated multiple times how appreciative you were for "all of the help you have provided us so far, and continuing to work with us in getting our questions answered" and "thank you for all of the help you have provided us in the planning over the last year, as well as while we all try to navigate these unfortunate circumstances", yet now you have changed your tune so drastically and we have been really inflexible and unfair in working with you? Again, we're sorry that things did not go as planned and you chose to cancel your event, which we fully understood. Wishing you nothing but the best moving forward.
