We were so honored to be a part of Alicia and Johny’s Mitten Building Wedding. Alicia and Johny hold a special place in our hearts. They, along with a group of their friends, have all entrusted our team into their circle and community. Alicia and Johny are the 4th couple within this circle of friends that we have invited us in to document their wedding with photos or video.
When we met with Alicia and Johny, we asked so many questions to get to know them as we always love doing with our couples. They told us about their relationship, their wedding and what was important to them about the big day. We were immediately drawn to their vibe as a couple and a their vision of their wedding. When the officially invited us to document the wedding, we were thrilled and could not wait to celebrate with with them and see some of our friends at the wedding.
Our first impression upon arriving at The Mitten Building was that had travel back in time. We were immersed by a strong red brick building and the vintage wood floors and accesnts. This romantic building exceeded our expectations. The Mitten Building was built in 1890 as the Haight Citrus Packing House. Next, it became the Mitten Letter Factory from approx. 1940 – 1980. Needles to say, the building possessed a history to it and vintage character that is widely sought after with for modern day weddings. The upstairs wedding venue is a sight to behold, with elegant wooden floors, deep cardinal brick walls all being gently lit making this ceremony fill with ardent.
We absolutely loved watching Alicia and Johny exchange vows, show off dance moves, and embrace each other on their wedding day. This was our last wedding of 2017 and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end the year.
