Skip City Hall and elope in and around SF without losing grandeur and iconic Scenery
When you think of elopements in San Francisco, the well known City Hall likely comes to mind. However, the city has so much more to offer to couples seeking an intimate, unforgettable wedding experience. If you're looking for a more unique and less crowded setting, there are countless picturesque locations for your special day. Here are some alternative, romantic San Francisco elopement spots that don't involve City Hall.
Whether you want architecture, redwoods, cliffside views of the Bay, or a spot that shows off the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, there’s something for everyone within this list. And just remember, the exciting part about having an elopement is that you can do whatever you want on your day. You don’t have to just stick to one spot - if you want to start your day saying “I do” while in the redwoods and end your day wrapped in each other’s arms taking in the beautiful twinkling lights of the Golden Gate Bridge while watching the sun set over the bay, you can do just that.
Here are some spots that would work great for your ceremony. Some can accommodate a few guests while others are better kept small - just you two, your officiant, and your photographer (me *wink*):
