Being born and raised in Texas, I sometimes have to do a little bit of research before I can get started on a wedding feature. I’m well acquainted with Jenny at Alders Photography … we’ve seen many of her weddings get rave reviews on Style Me Pretty! But this wedding venue – Adriana & Gene’s downtown Los Angeles venue was new to me ~ Marvimon. What I learned is that it is a unique loft space defined by soaring ceilings and vintage brick. Originally built by an Italian race car driver as one of Los Angeles’ first automobile showrooms, Marvimon is that virtual oasis of delight for any couple craving a loft-style wedding space that’s modern and chic with just the right vintage ambiance!

Here’s a little bit about their day from their sweetheart of a photographer, Jenny Smith of Alders PhotographyThis was a fabulous wedding to photograph. Adriana & Gene spared no expense to pull together the best day ever. After getting ready at the Millenium Biltmore they chose to see each other before the ceremony to utilize the light since it was a November wedding. They took a limo to Olivera Street (the oldest street in Los Angeles) and Union Station for some romantic couple photos before joining their friends and family at the uber urban and wonderful Marvimon for their ceremony and reception. This wedding was unique in that it came a year and a half after the couple gave birth to their son, Nathan. He was a wonderful reminder of their love running around at the party.
