Jacqueline and Laurent’s Outdoor Art Club wedding was a fairy tale come true. This Marin wedding venue is quaintly nestled in the small town of Mill Valley. The cottage-like building and whimsical gardens make for a magical atmosphere. The building was designed by Bernard Maybeck and built in 1904, so it truly has character. Jacqueline and Laurent’s ceremony took place amongst the redwoods in the back garden, which was breathtaking. The cocktail party and reception had a wonderful indoor and outdoor flow. We visited a redwood grove nearby for portraits as well as the in picturesque downtown Mill Valley. I’m so happy for this couple and their new life together! Congratulations!

A little bit of history on this unique Bay Area wedding spot: As the story goes, a small group of women were out taking a walk one morning in 1902, their husbands were off at the Bohemian Club. On their walk, they came upon some workmen cutting down redwood trees near the square. They were aghast and decided that they should form an organization to preserve the beauty of Mill Valley. And they did just that. The Outdoor Art Club is a City, State and National landmark. The building was designed by Bernard Maybeck and built in 1904. It is a unique venue — a building of architectural significance.
