Wedding at Mills College Chapel

Discovering new venue is always exciting. Being still relatively new to the Bay Area, we are constantly encountering venues that we have not yet worked at. Through a recent wedding, I had the pleasure to discover the Chapel at Mills College in Oakland. The space unfolds like a treasure--once you enter through the discreet double doors and continue down a brief corridor, a surprise circular sanctuary unfurls and soars. The circular floor plan embodies an intimate atmosphere, and I was surprised to learn from my bride that it held 150 guests nicely. Designed by architect Charles Warren Callister, the mid century structure (1958 to be precise) is a juxaposition of wood and concrete, shadow and light.
