My name is Mills Tate and I am the Weddings Coordinator for Goat Lady Dairy. With the help of Nate Tate, the GLD Events Manager, I book, host, and manage all of the weddings we have at the Dairy.
I joined the Goat Lady family when I married Nathan, the son and nephew of Goat Lady Dairy's founders. We were married in a small ceremony at the Dairy on Thanksgiving Day 2008.
Nathan's father, Steve (one of the owners of Goat Lady Dairy), officiated our wedding. He was a minister long before he became a cheese maker!
We held our ceremony inside the Main Barn, because we were worried it would be too cold in late November for an outdoor wedding. It actually turned out to be a fairly warm day, but the interior of the Main Barn made for some great wedding photos.
Jessica Trotman was the photographer for our wedding. I am so glad a friend recommended her to us. Jessica not only took some wonderful photographs, but has become a good friend!

I love that you can see the barns and the corner of the garden in this shot.
This shot was taken in front of the doors of the Main Barn. My mom found our initials at a craft store and hung them on the doors. So clever!
This photograph was taken on the side porch of the Main Barn. Nate has a picture of his grandparents sitting in this same spot!
This is actually my favorite photo from my wedding. My Maid of Honor, Katherine, and my brother, John, spent the entire reception attempting to catch a chicken. Their eventual success made my wedding day!
