Peninsula Wedding Venues
The Peninsula is known as the San Francisco Peninsula, and though it technically contains the northernmost city for which it’s named, the region itself is everything south of the San Francisco city limits. With the likes of Half Moon Bay, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Woodside, Burlingame, Los Altos, San Mateo, and other Californian gems that mix mountain views, gorgeous weather, ocean waves, and high-end services and accommodations, you’re in store for some of the most picturesque wedding venues in the United States.
Wedding venues in the Peninsula tailor their grounds inside and out to meet and exceed wants and expectations, taking advantage of the scenic surroundings while providing contemporary conveniences this innovative area is world-famous for. From the ocean views, to the private properties on sprawling acres of incomparable landscaping, to the wineries and banquet halls, they all provide an escapist feel, and the vast majority has the option of an outdoor event both for the ceremony and the reception.
Wedding ceremonies in the Peninsula overlooking the water set unforgettable backdrops of a windswept storybook daydream. Portraits framed with a historic building overlooking the cliff side or the endless ocean in the background with your toes in the sand last a lifetime, and wonderfully positioned gazebos set the stage for exchanging vows in the year-round superb weather. Unique aisles and the endless rolling mountains enhance the ceremony to indescribable heights, setting the tone for the celebrations ahead, and the shared life together beyond that. Luxurious holds hands with pastoral on grounds specifically coordinated for the perfect day. Whether on the shores of Half Moon Bay or one of the other conveniently positioned golf courses, event centers, resorts, and banquet halls, the options abound, and never fail to astound.
Trendy, traditional, or a combination of the two, wedding receptions in the Peninsula utilize state-of-the-art sound and light equipment—a commonplace amenity of the area—in tandem with custom drapes, exquisite cuisine, craft cocktails, locally sourced wine pairings, a cake by a world-renown pastry chef, flawlessly arranged furnishings, and more to create an event of an awe-inspiring pinnacle. Your chic dance floor can be surrounded by panorama floor-to-ceiling windows, outside on a hand-carved dock, in a historic resort’s ballroom, or a surprising spot waiting to be discovered, decorated with you and yours deeply in mind. You won’t want the night to end, but the private suite featuring a spacious balcony and Jacuzzi tub makes ending the celebration and getting ready for the honeymoon a little easier.
