Looking Back – Marvimon Wedding
Thank Goodness It’s Sofia Catering has been around for along time. But our blog is new. Over the years we’ve worked on some memorable events. We decided we should take some time to look back and share some of them with you. The wedding of Erin & Jeffrey took place in Downtown Los Angeles at the interesting Marvimon.
It’s always a pleasure to work with great professionals in our industry. This wedding was planned to perfection by Amber Gustafson of Amber Events. She worked with the couple to pay great attention to the details. We took care of the delicious food. It was an eclectic menu including influences from China, Greece and Taiwan.
The Marvimon is an eclectic venue, that sits on the edge of Chinatown in Downtown Los Angeles. In the 1920’s it was an automobile dealership and showroom. It fell into disrepair, leaving it empty for a few decades. Luckily it was saved by an amazing couple who restored it to it’s original splendor, and made into a completely eco-friendly building. It’s filled with beautiful eco friendly plants and succulents. The venue is completely private and has stunning details. With wood beam ceilings and an exciting exhibition kitchen, it’s perfect for the couple who wants a unique setting for their big day. It’s a foodie lovers dream. We especially love the wood tables the venue provides. It’s a chic yet vintage setting for dinner.
Another of our favorite elements of the venue, is the outdoor patio. It’s the setting for your ceremony as well as a lounge for after dinner. There is no need to rent lounge furniture. The venue has their own, as well as wood benches that have been recycled from wood found on the property during the remodeling process. They are happy to make it into any configuration you desire. Twinkle lights wash the patio, making the space romantic as the sun sets over the city.
Many thanks to the talented photographers The Youngrens for capturing the beauty of the venue an our food.
