There is hardly any more romantic place to get married than San Francisco. This beautiful historic city is full of iconic buildings, beautiful locations, and spectacular architecture. But if you want your wedding and photography to stand out, look for unique San Francisco wedding venues. Here are a couple we’ve researched for you.
If history is your thing, the Legion of Honor, a museum located within eyesight of the famous Golden Gate Bridge should be at the top of your unique San Francisco wedding venues list. The spectacular Beaux-Arts architecture and a lovely interior with its art exhibition that spans an impressive 4000 years, lends itself to spectacular wedding photographs and turns your wedding into a memorable and special event.
Another museum that makes our list of unique San Francisco wedding venues is the Asian Art Museum. It is a mix of interesting designs that make for some great wedding photos. From its European style, Beaux-Arts architecture to its massive collection of Asian art (one of the biggest in the world), this venue offers 5 unique choices for your ceremony and reception. You can use Samsung Hall with its cathedral ceilings, marble columns and spectacular chandeliers or opt for one of the less stately but no less beautiful locations. The Japanese Garden is ideal for a small, intimate wedding.
For a wedding of simple rustic charm, the Swedenborgian Church is just the thing. A blazing fire and candles add to the wooden ambient warmth of this National Historic Landmark building. The historic gardens can also be hired for small outdoor weddings. The Swedenborgian religion, which the church was built for, is a liberal one accepting other faiths and also welcoming LGBT weddings. Receptions are generally held in the garden or the Parish House, which is a wedding photographers delight when it comes to capturing those important moments of your special day.
