Here’s how to narrow your search of favorite venues.

Some couples are looking for specifics like vaulted ceilings, olive groves, a Victorian house, all-inclusive packages, a vineyard lawn, or other things that make the “perfect venue” to them.

But what you should really do is narrow down your search.

You can do so by looking at virtual tours, past reviews, and then get an on-site tour, no matter if you’re looking near Yosemite Valley, Santa Clara Valley, or the Santa Cruz Mountains or even further out.

San Francisco Venues

When looking at Northern California wedding venues in San Francisco, you probably want something more urban, such as a historic hotel or views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The East Bay

The East Bay of San Francisco simply refers to the eastern shores of San Francisco Bay.

Here lies the city of Oakland, the largest city and home to countless businesses that operate secondly as a wedding venue: museums, golf clubs, hotels, and event centers.

But if you venture out further to Walnut Creek or Berkley, you can also find more venues with rural charms such as wineries and barn venues.

The South Bay is also known as Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is the tech capital of the world and an excellent place for an upscale or urban wedding.
