W ateddings MILL THE

The Venue:

A premier conference venue in Northwestern Wisconsin! The 5900 square foot facility can accommodate groups from 20 to 300 people. The character of the original mill lends itself well to the current industrial design trend. A touch of the rustic with an industrial-modern, elegant flair (and all of the moden conveniences) combine to create an atmosphere that will wow any guest. From the one-hundredyear-old Gothic arch Quonset to the modern-industrial Bin room to the chic and luxurious bride room, no design opportunity was left untouched.

32 |

Standout Features:

Elegance is everywhere at The Mill! The distinctive and fully equipped bar—situated in the Bin Room under the one remaining, massive steel structures that give the space character and presence—features quartz counters and original industrial bar stools. The grand ballroom is The Quonset. This space can seat 220 guests and the one-hundred-year-old Gothic arches make for great party acoustics! Other features include a groom's lounge, elegantly appointed restroom facilities, a 14'X20' deck and designated smoking areas. The two main spaces, the Bin Room and the Quonset can be separated by closing the commercial doors between them. This gives your guests a space to break away from the party if the need to do so, or we can open them up and keep the party flowing through both spaces. Either way, the state-of-the-art surround sound system will keep your guests entertained at the appropriate volume all-night long.


Bridal Suite:

The elegant bridal suite has ample room so that you and your bridal party are pampered as you prepare for your wedding. We didn’t forget the other part of the wedding party as we created a comfortable groom's lounge to help occupy the guys as they wait for the ladies!


We want to make things as hassle-free as we can. Included in the rental fee are all of the tables and chairs, risers, technology package, and shuttle service!

Planning a Safe Destination Wedding by

If you’ve always dreamed of getting married in a romantic, faraway spot, your dream can still come true even during this time when the coronavirus has made travel more challenging.

Travel advisors have years of experience assisting clients with milestone celebrations like weddings and the expertise to help you plan a safe and socially distanced destination wedding that meets the highest safety standards.

Travel advisors speak with you in order to understand your dreams, expectations and budget to create a customized experience. They can offer firsthand knowledge and expert insights into the possibilities for your wedding. For example, many Travel Leaders travel advisors have recently visited Cancun, where they observed precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. They know which hotels and resorts are adhering to the strictest requirements that will make your event memorable and safe.

When it comes to accommodations, you’ll find that hotels and resorts have responded to the threat of COVID-19 with precautions on every square inch of their property. Lobbies have been modified for social distancing, with furniture removed to create more space. Many properties are using online check-in and keyless entry to reduce contact points. They’re keeping rooms vacant for 72 hours between guests and providing daily housekeeping only upon request, in order to reduce the number of people entering the room.

Here are some things to consider as you plan your destination wedding:

First, you have to decide where to go. You’ll have lots of options to choose from in places like Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii, as well as across the continental United States.

According to recent surveys, the top five tropical destinations are:

1. Negril, Jamaica

2. Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3. St. Lucia

4. Costa Rica

5. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The top non-tropical spots include:

1. Bar Harbor, Maine

2. Tucson, Arizona

3. Park City, Utah

4. Lake Placid, New York

5. Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Travel advisors are constantly monitoring which destinations are reopening to American travelers, as well as ever-changing health requirements. They’ll have the most up-to-date information, especially in regard to how cruise lines, airlines, hotels, etc. are enacting new safety protocols.

Next, consider how big you want your wedding to be. With pandemicrequired restrictions on large gatherings, you may have to opt for a smaller ceremony. A smaller in-person group means a wider range of venue options and more flexibility in your budget. Not only is this lowpressure option easier to plan, it will also allow you to broadcast and record your big day to a larger audience with a Zoom conference or livestream.

From intimate gardens to panoramic penthouse balconies, overwater bungalows and sun-soaked beaches, a mini ceremony opens up a world of creative choices. For example, Palace Resorts in Mexico and Jamaica offer all-inclusive luxury like gourmet dining and five-star accommodations. Funjet Vacations partners with top airlines and hotel chains to bring you deals that you can get through your travel advisor.

For help navigating any travel plans, contact your travel advisor or connect with one through Higgins Travel Leaders, 715-834-2686.

We’re nestled within the bustling heart of downtown Eau Claire, right on the Chippewa River Trail, mere feet from the Eau Claire River, and just blocks away from several restaurants, retailers, pubs, parks, farmers markets, theaters, and various nightly events.

Our unique property consists of two distinct buildings — The Main House and The Flats — joined by our actively programmed courtyard and our comfortable, woodsy patio. In addition to rooms, the Main House hosts The Lakely, our farmer-sourced restaurant, bar, and music venue, complete with a stage and dynamic sound system. The Main House is also home to The Gallery, a cozy room that features local artwork, exposed brick and a statement wall of wood originally culled from Eau Claire and dredged up from Dell’s Pond, paying homage to Eau Claire’s logging history.

From the locally handcrafted wood furniture in our rooms to the cut-stone fire pits in our courtyard, the design and amenities at The Oxbow Hotel have been thoughtfully considered in an effort to make your special day and your stay enjoyable — and reflective of the spirit of Eau Claire.

...and we hope you do just that. | 45
