from Felice Brenner

We can;t begin to thank you for all your hard work and extra efforts to make our Gourmet Lunchbox Lunch a success. From the extra AV, to the centerpiece loans to moving the tables at least five times, your staff just couldn’t do enough. We do understand the time and effort your facility invested in us and we can’t imagine a better location or more successful event. On behalf of the entire staff and families of ABC of NC- please know that we thank you !

from Abby Thompson

I have to begin this review with many, many, thanks to Greg. Greg & his wife, Edy, are amazing people! We had our ceremony in the courtroom upstairs, the cocktail hour in the Maya Angelou bar & the reception in the grand ballroom. The beauty of the building really takes your breath away. The day we toured, the ballroom was set up for a wedding reception & my at the time fiance, and my mother knew from the look on my face that there was no need to go anywhere else. I absolutely loved every moment of the planning. Greg is willing to do whatever you need! There was a particular cake table we wanted that he was willing to create for us. The FOOD is AMAZING. He has several vendors that he is used to working with & it made me feel so comfortable knowing these were tried & true professionals (our DJ was fab, thanks to Greg!). We had such a wonderful time. Everything was wonderful, even down to the morning of our event when I received a pep-talk for Greg when there was a slight bridal party drama going on. One of my favorite moments was showing my dad the ballroom for the first time as it was being set up & him & Greg shared a moment where they both teared up.
For all the complements we received, we really had to give credit to the Millennium Center. They do it ALL. Set up, clean up, chairs, tables, linens! They will even do your centerpieces if requested. We had an open bar, prime rib, chicken, eggplant rollatini, assorted artisan rolls, fresh salad with locally sourced ingredients like Strawberries… It was amazing. We hardly had to lift a finger with any of our wedding planning!

You can’t go wrong with the Millennium Center! We held our November 21st, 2015 wedding reception here and it was absolutely FANTASTIC! Greg Carlyle and his team were phenomenal and absolutely an integral part to pulling off such a special evening. Literally, my every wish/request was granted! Through all of the planning and decor & vendor selections, Greg was there to assist with suggestions and referrals and never once steered me wrong. And then to the actual day of, from getting ready in the bridal suite to tearing up the dance floor in to the night, we could not have asked for a more perfect celebration. The building itself is so special and really just a sight to behold and then on top of that, the support staff really has the wedding thing down to a science. One item that was really important to me was that the food be mind-blowing, and Chef Pat and Artisan really delivered – people are still talking about the MASSIVE charcuterie display. Also, I remember at first being a bit wary about not hiring a day of coordinator, but just as Greg reassured me, we stayed completely on schedule and the event flowed flawlessly. Our reception was simply perfection, and I am just SO thankful for the Millennium Center and team for all that they did to pull it off. This place is the epitome of elegance and like I stated in the beginning of this review, you can’t go wrong with the Millennium Center!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for a wonderful event Friday night!  Everything was beyond perfect and I could not have asked for anything else!  You were delightful to work with, your staff were so thoughtful and accommodating and the food was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!!!  We received so many compliments about the food – the perfect menu!!

 As we were packing up on Saturday morning, I met a couple who was considering the Speak Easy for their son’s rehearsal dinner.  (Their daughter was married upstairs recently.)  I gave her my email address because she wanted to see pictures of the decor, food, etc.  I tried to sell her on the space but my words were useless.  She and her husband were already sold on the room!  🙂

 THANKS again for everything!  We look forward to dining at your new restaurant on our next visit to Winston-Salem.  Best of luck with this endeavor!!

 Take care, Catherine

Hi Greg!

I couldn’t let another day pass without telling you how elated we are that we chose you and The Millennium Center for Kathryn’s wedding reception. Tracy could not get over how accommodating you were with their every request. It was an amazing experience from the beautiful décor to the unbelievable food. Everyone was talking about what a spectacular venue you have and they’re still raving about the food. The wedding was everything we could have imagined and more. We know that, in large part, we owe that to you, Cyndi, John, and the rest of your incredible staff. Thank you again for helping to make it one of the most memorable times in our lives.

Warmest regards,

Bob and Lisa

My daughter’s wedding day was one of the greatest days of my life and the most fun I have ever had. That was only possible because of the Millennium Center. I have dined and/or attended many events at so called four and five star facilities. None of them hold a candle to Millennium Center. You are ten star, top drawer, over the top fantastic. Some of the best food I have ever eaten (seconded by the dozens of people that went back for seconds and thirds of the shrimp and grits, beef tenderloin and turkey with out of this world gravy). Best quality food and bar of any wedding reception I have ever attended. Jerome (your chef) is the bomb – super nice guy and great talent. The entire staff had such a complete consumer satisfaction focus and attention to detail that I was totally blown away.

 The facility was great as well. It was beautifully decorated and the floor plan allows for such flexibility (band had its own dressing room; newlyweds had a private area to regroup, etc. before the wedding party was introduced; early arrivers at the reception were served appetizers and drinks in the lobby before the ball room was open.) And the ballroom- wow! Perfect for a band, plenty of room to dance, tons of tables (there was a seat available for every single guest) and still plenty of room for the buffet stages. All of this at a very, very reasonable price.

 Anyone having a wedding reception in Winston-Salem would be crazy to go anywhere else. I just wish I had another daughter so I could do it again!

 Greg, kudos to you and all of your family and staff that made this such a great day in our lives. You are the best!

Greg,

Thank you, thank you for making our party so special!  Everything went off without any glitches.  You have a wonderful staff and they always were there to take care of our every need.  It was so nice to come in and everything set up for us.  Also, I like the cleanup!  We are getting to old to take care of all that.  Your room is a great set-up.  I’m just glad we didn’t exceed the number the room held.  I was afraid it would as the numbers started coming in.  The room served our purpose perfectly with the big square room effect and great parking lot.  I’m afraid they didn’t find the cozy patio, which really sold me on the place.  I am sure glad you suggested putting the whicker on the front porch.  There was always a group or two out there!

 Again, my thanks for all you did for us.  Everybody had a great time and your place received many compliments.  There were many from the Winston area that attended, so hopefully that got your name out there, as a good place to have a party.  Everybody knows about the Millennium at the old post office, but do not know about the North Point facility.  In fact, I’ll have to ask the boys how they found it, but glad they did!

With best regards,

Patsy

Dear Greg, Edie and the rest of your wonderful Staff,

     THANK YOU!  We could not have asked for anything to be more wonderful.  When we got home from Winston yesterday, we had messages from several people just to say how beautiful the wedding was and what a good time they had had.  I went to school today, but I will have to confess that most of my day was consumed by “wedding talk”.  Even my principal would not stop talking about it, even when I said I had to get back to my room to teach Math!  Everyone said that was the best food they had eaten in a long time.

Thanks again for helping to make Holly’s dream wedding come true for she and Joey.  It was beautiful!

Greg,

Once again, I am already receiving emails from those attending tonight’s event to say what a wonderful event we hosted. The consistent comment was “I had no idea that this lower level existed!” When I finally perused the venue was a totally engaged group having an incredible time! I love this space!!!

Thank you again for the incredible space, your engaging staff and one fabulous venue that sets the stage and exceeds our expectations! I love working with you and your staff! You are incredible!

Dear Greg,

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you did to make our wedding such a success. Cyndi, John, you and the rest of the staff did an amazing job. The food was fabulous, the ballroom was gorgeous, and everything went absolutely perfectly. You all really went above and beyond and did more for us than I ever expected. Everyone was just raving about the venue and someone even said it was the best reception they had ever been to. I loved the fajita station and the rest of the food was delicious too. Thank you for saving the wedding party hors d’oeuvres from the cocktail hour-that was awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!!!!!

Sincerely,

Scott & Whitney Windsor

Hi Greg,

My husband and I are both from Winston Salem and getting married here was important to us. From the very beginning of our wedding planning process we both knew that our event was going to be BIG. After a couple of months of researching, visiting, and cost gathering we decided the MC was the best venue for us. We wanted to contain as much of our wedding events into downtown Winston and the MC gave us the most bang for the buck. In the end we had close to 300 family members and friends attend our event.

 The MC was great from the very beginning. It was wonderful to have the catering, venue set-up, and music be hosted by the same venue. They also provided a place for me and my bridesmaids to gather, have lunch and get ready the day of the wedding. It saved me a lot of time and effort because I could meet everyone in one meeting instead of several as we progressed through the planning. Also, the MC has done business with a lot of other great vendors in the area and they provided me with a list of suggestions to get me started.

 The MC chefs and staff were also wonderful…the food was amazing and many of our guests still comment on the food at our reception. The staff was also professional, courteous, attentive and fun.

 Overall, our event was wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more. The MC is the best place in town for a ‘one-stop’ venue for brides looking to have a small event or something big like ours. I would recommend it to everyone.

Wanted to thank you again for your great work in handling Holly’s and Alex’s wedding reception this past Saturday night.  From the start (last year when we visited the Millennium Center for the first time) all the way through to the wedding reception held this past Saturday night, you and your staff were there to answer questions and coordinate details with us every step of the way.  We truly appreciated your professionalism and attention to every detail that made the night so wonderful for everyone!  We will certainly recommend you to anyone needing any of the services you have to offer.

 As we were collecting everything after the reception was over on Saturday night (gifts, centerpiece vases, etc.) we had to call on the help of some of your staff several times, and Patrick there was such a big help to us in all kinds of ways.  I think he made several trips back and forth, downstairs, upstairs, etc., just to get what we needed, whether it was a paper plate and saran wrap for the last cake pieces, or a big box to carry out all the vases.  All the while, Patrick did everything with a smile on his face.

 Thank you again for everything!  We wish you continued success in the future!

Dear Greg,
Thank you for an absolutely breath-takingly spectacular social and rehearsal dinner in honor of our son and his bride to be.

When you descried and envisioned how exquisite it would be, we had no idea of how the entire evening would sparkle and shine- but sparkle and shine it did! The social was a major hit and the meal a stunning homerun. You and your staff were impeccable with your service and support. The evening exceeded our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We extend our sincere and grateful appreciation for a night of beloved memories for Beth and Oliver and our guests.

Again, thank you so very much!

Please pass along our thanks to Greg and the entire staff for an absolutely wonderful evening!  We received so many compliments on both the location and the food.  Shannon was thrilled with the canopy and lighted/draped columns around the dance floor (and the white beaded trees, of course). I can’t say enough about the ease of coordinating this event, as all of the staff’s attention to detail and interest in our event made it actually pleasant to both plan and attend!  Again, many thanks, and we will most certainly keep The Millennium Center in mind for future events.

Dear Greg,

Your amazing gifts of time and talent helped to make the premiere of ACS Dining With Friends Finale and Fashion Show a huge success. We’ve heard nothing but raves about the Millennium Center and hope we can work together next year. With the money raised at this event we will be able to continue providing critical care and prevention services to more than 425 people living with HIV/AIDS in this region.

ACS is a place where clients learn the tools to lead long, successful lives with HIV disease and have the ability to be themselves without fear of judgement. Thank you for helping make this possible.

My Best,

Hey Greg!  I just wanted to thank you one more time for the awesome event you put on for us this morning!  You are a class act, always willing to go the extra mile, and we appreciate the great setup we had as well as the wonderful lunch.  You were right!!  You got 315 people through the lunch line in 13 minutes!  That’s a great record!!  : )  After talking to many people during lunch, everyone was very impressed with your facilities, your hi-tech capabilities (which I understand are expanding), the great food, etc.  Thanks also for being willing to do the balloons for us.  That was a great addition!

Again, thanks so much (and I know I speak for everyone!).  Take care and look forward to doing some future events there!

Thanks so much!

Dear Gregory and Staff,


On behalf of the entire Wells-Gilbert wedding party I would like to sincerely thank you for your exceptional job in catering such a wonderful experience for us. When we first visited Winston-Salem in order to secure a suitable venue for our son’s rehearsal dinner, we were at a total loss. What could have been a difficult undertaking turned out to be so much fun when we by chance discovered the Millennium Center!

From our initial consultation with you, to the many long distance emails, you were always very accommodating and never bothered by our endless questions. You have an outstanding staff that can handle even the strangest request. Who would have thought that the bartender would have the exact computer cable that was needed at the last minute and then went home to retrieve it for us!

We are so impressed with the passion and care that you have put into the adaptive reuse of your magnificent historic building. Winston-Salem should be very proud to have such an outstanding enterprise within their city. Our guests were so impressed and thrilled to be invited to explore the building! Many of them are still talking about it.

As with any momentous event, I wish that we could rewind the entire weekend and do it all over again. I wouldnt change a thing! If we are ever in Winston-Salem in the future, we will surely stop by and say hello.

Most Sincerely,

Charles and Meredith Wells

For our wedding, we wanted to find a unique venue. We visited MANY different places and I knew of quite a few since I had been a banquet manager at a local hotel for over 7 years. When we went into the Millennium Center to look around, we were amazed with the style and architecture of the facility. We then contacted the owner, Greg Carlyle, and boy, were we even more amazed! Greg was spectacular! He had tons of ideas for us & fulfilled everything he promised & so much more for our wedding! We could not have been more pleased with the facility, the staff, and the food. It was the most wonderful experience all around!

Thanks Greg & staff!
