Our most intimately-sized space, The Skylight Room is named after the 6 large skylights that provide an amazing blend of indoor and outdoor “feel” to the room.  Whether it’s a bright day, a dark evening with starlight, or even with the calming patter of raindrops, The Skylight Room brings a bit of nature to go along with the industrial feel of exposed brick and beams.

The Skylight Room is absolutely perfect for ceremonies or smaller-style wedding celebrations, not to mention bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, small corporate meetings, or any other small-group style of gathering.  While the exposed brick creates its own ambiance, the simple white backdrop at the head of the room allows your own creativity to shine and set the mood for your event.

All events at The Mill Top have complimentary access to our Event Coordinator Team throughout your entire planning process.  The Coordinators will assist with all of the amazing ways you can customize your event; optional items include (but not limited to) linens & drapery, custom LED lighting, stunning twinkle-light displays, classic chandelier lighting, built-in sound system, flat screen televisions, and more.  All room rentals include a selection of tables (round table, rectangle/banquet-style tables, etc.) and our brown banquet chairs; other colors/styles of seating, including chair covers, resin chairs, and Chiavari chairs, are available as optional enhancements.

Feel free to peruse these photos of The Skylight Room in various set-ups, and don’t hesitate to contact us if we can provide more information for you about The Great Room or any of our other rooms for your upcoming wedding or event!

Explanation of room setup type

  • Reception: A typical setup for seated-dinner style reception for dinner & dancing. This setup will also include space for bar(s), dance floor, cake/dessert table, and buffet/station tables if needed.
  • Ceremony: Theater-style setup with chairs in straight or curved rows, with an aisle and altar space for the wedding procession.
  • Split-Room: A “hybrid” type of room configuration with dedicated space for a theater-style ceremony setup and a draped-off area for reception tables to be present but out of sight during the ceremony. During cocktails, guests usually exit the room to another area, and staff works to “flip” the room into the desired reception configuration.
  • Cabaret: Also known as a “dinner theater” type of setup, the room is configured for the ceremony so that guests sit at their tables (set with linens only – no china, silverware, glasses, etc., to maintain a very formal look).  The floor plan is set so there is an aisle and an altar space for the ceremony, as normal, but once the ceremony is done, guests can remain in the same room for cocktails, dinner, and dancing.
