THE MILL LAKESIDE MANOR

A modern and timeless lakefront venue in Spring Lake, NJ.

01.

You may know The Mill Lakeside Manor by it’s previous name, The Mill at Spring Lake Heights. Located in Monmouth County, The Mill Lakeside Manor is well-known on the Jersey Shore as the original mill has been around since the early 50’s. Since then, the property has gone through many changes and the current venue was remodeled in 2018. Today it is a beautiful venue for a classic NJ Wedding. Ceremonies take place outdoors in their lakeside patio, which also doubles as a portrait location. The new façade of the venue also makes a perfect backdrop thanks to its clean white and elegant appearance. The reception room overlooks a lake and has lush greenery all around. It’s located on the second floor so in addition to having gorgeous views, it also lets in a wonderful amount of natural light. Guests will surely say, though, that the best part of the venue is its delicious food. From a photographer’s perspective, I’ll also say that a huge perk of this venue is its proximity to Divine Park and the beach. Two beautiful portrait locations within just a couple of miles from the venue!

This venue does not allow couples to get ready on site so I recommend getting ready at your home, a local AirBnB or hotel.

CAN WE BOTH GET READY ON SITE?

Yes. The ceremony space at The Mill Lakeside Manor is right on the water. Guests love the serene and picturesque setting.

DO YOU RECOMMEND GETTING MARRIED ON SITE? 

Yes! In addition to the beautiful natural greenery, the building is beautiful, and right on the water. There's a dock there also that is popular for photos.

ARE THEIR SUFFICIENT GROUNDS FOR PORTRAITS?

I recommend taking family formals in front of the building for nice shade, in the ceremony space, in the foyer, or on the back patio.

WHERE CAN WE TAKE FAMILY FORMALS?

The food is absolutely amazing and the ballroom is so elegant! But my favorite aspect is the staff - you'll be treated like royalty here!
