Modern elegant wedding in DTLA: Brittany + Jason

November 29, 2016
Modern LA wedding

Here’s why we loved hearing Brittany + Jason’s story: Every detail that went into their day was personal. Take their wedding date—they chose to say I Do on Brittany’s late father’s birthday, in order to include him in their celebration. So when Millwick was booked for the 19th, they decided to have it on Friday the 18th with a formal ceremony in the evening. Then, as guests danced the night away, their officiant stepped in and made it official at midnight!

Brittany says, We signed the marriage certificate, had our first official kiss and the band belted out The Night is Still Young. Then a cake equipped with sparklers was rolled out and the party swung back into full gear!  Isn’t that the coolest? Now, for Braedon Flynn’s photos…

Beyond my Dad we wanted to incorporate all of our amazing adventures, friends and family from across the globe! Sarah and the GATHER Events girls surprised us with a countdown to ‘The Best Day Ever’ on the screen behind the band because Jason and I always used an app to countdown to the next second we would be together. We used some of our favorite cities as the table names, such as Zermatt, London, Siem Reap and Monaco among others. The specialty drinks were uniquely named after various nicknames such as Barna Popped the Question (a nod to Jason’s Instagram handle), Mr. Snick (how my maiden name was often mispelled) and a Millwick Mule.

J + B were both new to LA when searching for a venue, but when GATHER Events suggested Millwick, they were sold. It was the urban oasis they were after!

The fountain, the living wall, the garage doors which transition the space into an open air type venue literally all hit us at once and we knew this was the space! Then when Miguel was giving us the tour he sold it even more by explaining details such as the custom gold ceramic wall and bird bar (which was inspired by his kid’s favorite book!) It was all just super cool and we hadn’t seen anything like it.
