Our Story

It all started when…


As a New York transplant, owner Nicole Clayton has always loved the industrial setting. When she moved to North Carolina and started a bartending service, On The Rocks Bartending, she quickly began to notice a lack of industrial venues in the Raleigh-Durham area. Wanting to bring her Northern love to the South, she opened The Cloth Mill in December 2015; the perfect industrial chic venue that marries the North and South in one unique space.

What sets us apart...

We know that every love story is different - and so are we.  The Cloth Mill provides a guided planning experience that allows you to focus on who you love, what you love, and sharing your love with your closest friends and family on your wedding day. 

Your dream team should reflect your own personal style. That’s why we partner with wedding professionals to cover every element of planning, from catering to decor, and give you the freedom of choice to select your favorites. 

We also know that you can’t hurry love. And to ensure that you never feel rushed, we only schedule one wedding per day at The Cloth Mill.  On your wedding day, you’ll have exclusive access to our outdoor courtyard, the entire mill, as well as our dressing suites and amenities. 

Our team is experienced, excited, and honored to help you start planning. 

The beginning of your forever starts here!
