It’s been months (maybe longer) since I shot this wedding in San Diego and I never blogged it. I had every intention to blog or post more about this wedding but I got busy. Lame excuse. Finally, last night, I sat down and took time to go through every photograph from this wedding and I’m so pumped on it still. So timeless and I’m really proud of the photos. Anthony & Shea trusted me completely to shoot my style and do whatever. Basically, I was reminded of the reasons why I became a wedding photographer - to share my vision and tell a story. To create something compelling.
They were so easy going with walking around downtown San Diego in the rain and picking different spots to shoot. It was frigid for San Diego and gave me a lot of moody reminders of my own wedding. Ultimately, rain cannot stop a wedding. It can change it but it cannot stop it. I love that.
So here’s the wedding story. Shea married Anthony. They wed at St. Michael’s in Poway and had their reception at the amazing Moniker Warehouse. It rained, a lot. There was family, friends, and lot of friends that felt like family. Everyone ate donuts and drank good stuff. We danced. It was epic.
If any Brides are looking at getting married at Moniker, I highly recommend it. It’s hard to find a true urban wedding environment in San Diego like Moniker Warehouse and your wedding photos will turn out amazing. I recently spoke with Moniker Group to find out more details about the wedding venue that’s nested in East Village, Downtown San Diego, and here’s what they said.
What’s the maximum capacity for a wedding? We try and keep it under 150 people but our comfortable max is 175 people.
Do you do ceremonies or just receptions? We get a good amount of ceremonies + receptions. The client or his/her vendors are just responsible for that flip during cocktail hour.
Are there any restrictions for caterers or other vendor services? We just require that everyone is insured + professional :)
Do you offer services like linens, tables, etc? We do have tables + chairs, but no linens.
What time does a wedding have to “shut down”? The wedding must end at midnight.
What coordination services do you provide? We offer full coordination, coordination + design and month of coordination.
There you go. A great, urban venue for a bride and groom looking for a unique wedding venue in San Diego.
