If you want to get married at the most iconic, quintessential San Francisco venue, that would definitely be San Francisco City Hall. The astounding rotunda surely has a jaw dropping effect on anyone that steps foot inside its marble interior!

Our clients, Kim and James, fell in love with the grandeur of San Francisco City Hall, and instantly picked it as their wedding venue. As with most of our clients, they didn't live in the Bay Area, but had ties to California, so we mostly worked with them remotely to plan their wedding from afar. Our systems in the cloud are perfect for such working relationships, and with just 2 trips out here during our established key points in the planning, everything worked out perfectly. 

The wedding day started off at the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown San Francisco, where Kim enjoyed a relaxing morning with her girlfriends. After she and James had their sweet First Look and shared a private moment together, they were whisked away on a cable car trolley with their bridal party to take photos around various San Francisco landmarks.

We wanted to preserve the classic look of the Rotunda, so we didn't go very elaborate with the decor at all. Kim loved purples and pinks and we had pops of it in various shades to bring some color against the neutral colored marble of the space. 

For the processional, James and the bridal party entered from the lobby level while Kim and her dad braved the long, grand staircase to make their entrance.

Cocktail hour was held upstairs on the mezzanine level, allowing guests to watch the transformation of the rotunda for dinner while sipping on His and Her cocktails.

When guests were invited back downstairs for dinner, the rotunda was transformed into a beautiful dinner space with warm lighting that made the whole space glow softly. Before guests feasted on a delicious meal catered by Melon's Catering, they welcomed the newly weds who made their grand entrance down the long staircase once again.

After heart warming toasts and a delicious 3 course meal, Kim and James opened up the dance floor with their first dance as husband and wife. For the rest of the evening, the guests (both young and old) diligently rocked the dance floor. The only time they took a break was when they hit the Flipbook Booth and bar!
