Millwick Wedding Photos
Millwick’s wedding venue, owned by Marvimon, has to be one of my favorites out of all of their properties. Marvimon owns other venue locations such as Smoggshope, Valentine, Grass Room, and Flora Chang (all affordable venues). Located in the heart of the arts district, a couple of miles away from downtown Los Angeles, this is in the perfect location. The arts district is on the rise featuring some of the bests breweries, restaurants, and coffee shops in downtown la. Millwick was originally a warehouse but now feels like a reinvented indoor and outdoor garden with unique and vintage furniture to host weddings, events, receptions, and parties.
The bride (Karen) and groom (Jason) chose the perfect venue. Most couples decide to get ready at hotels, but since they were having a smaller private wedding, we were able to capture the getting ready photos at the wedding venue. We began with the bridesmaids helping the bride put on her wedding dress in front of the mirror (which happens to be one of my favorite photographs).
Because Jason had his suit on ready to go, we started the day pretty quickly. We were able to do the first look in the garden courtyard, walk across the street, photographed at the top of the parking garage, and head back to the venue for family photos all in 30 minutes. Luckily traffic was light, so we were able to get amazing shots crossing the downtown Los Angeles streets. Because of a fantastic coordinator in Helen Cho, we were able to be efficient with our time and get back before the wedding guests arrived.
The wedding ceremony was short, romantic, intimate, but beautiful. Millwick offers some very unique views, and you can see this through the photos we were able to take from the windows. After the ceremony, we went straight into the reception. Family and friends were able to celebrate with the couple, ending the night with a lot of dancing, laughter, and fun. Los Angeles wedding photographers will be in love with this venue. Thank you so much for allowing us to capture your big day!
