Hey I am trying to make my final decision about a reception place. I have a hold on a date for upstairs at the rue de jean. Has anyone had a reception there or been to one there? My other spot is Old Rice Mill? Anyone been there?

We had ours at the Rice Mill- it was fantastic, great views of the water/marina and a nice setting having space inside and outside.

We considered the Rice Mill for our wedding... it's beautiful! If you're choosing between there and Rue de Jean I would go for the Rice Mill! So much character inside and out. It's on the water as well, which makes it even better. We looked at Rue de Jean also for our rehearsal dinner. It is nice, but the upstairs room does not have near as much character, history and charm as the Rice Mill.

I've been to both places, and I'm actually using the rice mill bldg for my reception. I would recommend it over the upstairs of rue de jean because it has a lot more character and you don't have to do much to decorate- the facility has a lot of charm already!

We had our reception at the Rice Mill and it was SO beautiful!! I absolutely loved the atmosphere it gave, and our guests raved for months about the location and view!

We've worked several receptions at The Rice Mill. It's a great venue, lots of parking and the people there are wonderful. We'd recommend it highly.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Upstairs at Rue De Jean and our wedding reception at the Historic Rice Mill. Both were excellent venues and we loved the exposed brick walls in both. The food and service was excellent. They are owned by the same catering company/group. Upstairs at Rue De Jean is definitely a smaller space...we enjoyed having the openness of the venue at the Rice Mill where guests could go inside or outside. Plus the views at the Rice Mill are amazing! Love them both!!
