Choose A Professional Wedding Photographer
Choosing a proper San Francisco wedding photographer can make or break your wedding. Check the websites of at least 10 SF wedding photographers before deciding. Check their portfolios and read reviews. One of the best places for the latter is Yelp as all professional photographers in SF Bay area have a Yelp profile set up. If they don’t have, chances are, you aren’t dealing with pros.
Splendid San Francisco Wedding Venues
The Golden Gate Bridge is the most striking feature of the city though that is not the only option. San Francisco offers loads of gorgeous wedding locations in and around the Bay Area ranging from the San Francisco Mint, the Palace of Fine Arts and the San Francisco City Hall to some of the most amazing San Francisco neighborhoods such as Chinatown, The Castro, Fillmore District, The Embarcadero, and many more.
San Francisco City Hall has always been the most preferred venue for civil ceremonies. The grandeur of the interiors is marvellous. On the other hand, The Castro will be ideal for you if you wish to host a same-sex wedding. This district is famous for its thriving LGBTQ community.
Best Time For San Francisco Wedding
The most popular months for weddings in San Francisco are September and October. However, all months on the calendar are up for grabs. In short, every time is the best to plan your wedding in San Francisco. That said, while you go through the calendar, make sure you avoid certain dates like Chinese New Year celebration as well as the San Francisco Pride and a few other similar festivals.
Thanks to the geographical location, San Francisco enjoys a palatable weather condition throughout the year. The temperatures remain far from extreme in any season so we cannot simply rule out any time of year as unfavorable for weddings.
Guest Accommodation and Travel Arrangements
San Francisco is big. Thus, arranging proper accommodations and transportation is crucial for your guests. The main airports in the area are the San Francisco International Airport, the Sacramento International and the Oakland International. The latter might be preferable for your guests if your venue is in Oakland or Napa. The same goes for accommodations: always book hotels close to your venue so that your guests can easily access the venue.
Remember, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is always there as a safe and reliable public transport option for your invitees.
So, the options to choose from are plenty. Follow your heart when making your San Francisco wedding plans. With all those choices and decisions to make, itâs a good idea to consult a professional wedding planner first to help you with wedding arrangements.
