Millwick Wedding Southern California - Late Night Street

Wedding Video and Photography at Millwick in Southern CA | Jenn + Dan

Los Angeles is quite the character. Her streets always bustling, her people always moving, her buildings glimmering in the rising and setting sun. Some love it here. Some hate it here. Millwick is a gem in the center of its concrete heart.

Being in Los Angeles is like playing golf. It has the ability to drive you mad, causing you to swear you will leave and never come back, but then a few moments later you will discover a charm that can be found nowhere else, which will leave you wanting to come back. You may play a horrible round of golf and then hit just ONE shot on 18 that is decent enough to make you smile and walk to the parking lot feeling like a champ.

When I flew in for Jenn and Dan’s wedding, the image of LA I had burned in my mind was instantly erased the moment we came over the mountains. No longer was it a pale brown, but a vibrant, Oz-like green. I had never seen her like this. The recent rain has brought the surrounding hills out of dormancy and a color has washed over them that has been absent for years. I asked locals when the last time was that they saw the hills this green, most said 20+ years, some said they have never seen it this green. I can see why settlers would be drawn to it and never want to leave.

Dan and Jenn hired me to do both photography and a film for them. My brother lives in LA so it was easy to bring him on board to help. I met the couple the night of their rehearsal and instantly picked up on their warmth. They are both sort of quiet, but can surprise you and be really loud a moment later, especially Jenn. I knew I liked them right away.

The wedding day started at a hotel downtown, but the rest of the day was spent at Millwick just down the road. You could drive past the venue a hundred times and never know the beauty that lay beyond the unassuming walls. The outdoor space at Millwick is vibrant, with plants covering the walls and lights crossing each way. The interior connects to the outside via two large garage doors that can easily be opened or closed, depending on the temperature. Jennifer did an amazing job with all of the details, from the tables and place settings to the flowers and catering. Millwick was such a gorgeous space.

The ceremony and cocktail hour both took place outside, followed by dinner and dancing inside. It was an awesome day and I am really happy with how the photos and video turned out. I think you will get a good sense for what these two are like by the end. The last 30 seconds may change your view of Dan abruptly when you see him cutting it up on the dance floor!

Mike & Sarah
Mike and Sarah were a joy to shoot. It is not often that I show up and find a bride and groom completely calm. They were relaxed all day, and I think that was part of their plan. They were saving all of their energy for the party later on. I was warned about a few of the guys... and they did not disappoint :) It is always a blast to stick around to the end when everybody is enjoying themselves. Thanks again guys for such a great day. So glad I could be a part of it!

Lauren and Eric – Perrysburg
It was a cold Sunday morning. The thermometer read 28 degrees. But, after factoring in wind chill, snow chill, river chill, and cloudy chill it felt more like -28 degrees. The cold air did not freeze the hearts of all of those at this intimate ceremony and brunch. This was a very low key wedding, held in an amazing apartment living room in downtown Perrysburg. About 20 people came to share the moments with Eric and Lauren. It was a great setting for these two to seal the deal. We were able to slip outside twice for some photos. The ladies were wonderful and did not complain as much as they should have with their shoulders bare and all. Finger ...

Connie + Marcos
Wonderful outdoor ceremony at North Pointe for Connie and Marcos.  I have driven by North Pointe multiple times but have never had the opportunity to go back in there until now.  It really is a very pretty area, with cute brick roads, well manicured lawns and colorful flower beds. Connie made a point of going down the road to visit her father's gravesite following the ceremony.  It was a very emotional time for her, and I know dad was happy she came to visit on such a special day.  Unfortunately, most of Maros' family from Brazil were unable to attend due to workers going on strike due to the World Cup.  His family was not able to get their ...
