The Shuey Mill circa 1845

Reviews & Testimonials

"Alyson is an absolute delight to work with!!  We had our wedding here and it was nothing short of perfect because of all her help.  She is amazing at everything she does.  I would recommend her & the Shuey Mill over and over and over again."  Lucy 

"Holistically beautiful, historical and unique!  Offers everything you want and more. "  Mariah

"When I first saw Olivia's engagement ring and realized we had a wedding to plan, I remember praying and my prayer was pretty short - 'Help Me!'  I knew I'd be out of my element.  And by God's providence, He brought us to you!  You have certainly been an answer to my prayer and I am thankful to God for you.  You and your business help others to celebrate something truly worth celebrating.  You take our burden on your shoulders so we may celebrate and rejoice.  What a gift you have given us.  Thank you."  Kristen & Olivia

"I cannot say enough good about the experience our families had with choosing this location for their special day.  Eddie and Alyson have created an elegant venue, while maintaining the historic heritage behind the mill's history in Germantown.  When my daughter-in-law chose the Mill for her wedding destination the mill was still under renovation; we were able to watch as Eddie and Alyson did their magic at creating a beautiful facility.  They were willing to listen and implement all of my son and daughter-in-law's wishes for their big day.  When you choose The Shuey Mill for your event you are getting the whole package.  Eddie and Alyson care about making your event exactly how you want it to be.  You really feel like you're working with family at this facility.  I truly believe we couldn't have had a better experience anywhere else." Penny

Alyson Brate, proprietor

My experience in the hospitality business began at The Peerless Mill Inn, Miamisburg, OH.  My stepfather owned the fine dining establishment and I began working there in my early teens.  He believed that a successful business person treated their guests like family members, and nothing is more important than a first impression. His favorite quote was ,"The best is barely good enough."

After years of working long weekends, and even longer holidays at The Peerless I ran as far from food service as I possibly could.  I graduated from Miami University with an Elementary Education degree and found myself teaching, as well as cooking for events for many years.  I returned to Germantown after living away for 12 years to open a catering business and sandwich shop.  Wedding catering, decor, and planning took priority and I began creating fairytales at many venues in a 30 mile radius;  Until I found the perfect venue to call mine.

Creating fairytales on any budget is my specialty!
