What about summer weddings in San Francisco? Some people might question the sanity of planning a wedding during the months of June, July and August. Why? Because everyone knows about our famous fog which is at it’s very worst during these months. My feeling is, who cares? Yes, your San Francisco wedding may not be marked by clear skies typically found in the summer, but San Francisco offers so much that it makes the fog irrelevant. As a native of this great city, I pretty much ignore the fog and appreciate all that SF has to offer. Let’s talk about why you should have your Wedding in San Francisco in the Summer.
Outdoor Wedding Photography
Want to have an outdoor wedding in the summer? It sounds romantic and fun, but if you are almost anywhere in California in the summer you could be in for a very hot time. We have photographed outdoor weddings in the Bay Area that were absolutely miserable for everyone involved due to the heat. Especially the poor groom with his heavy full coverage tux on. The guests can’t wait for the ceremony to be over and will frequently hide under the trees until the ceremony starts. But have your wedding in San Francisco and you would enjoy the natural air conditioning that the fog brings in. Once the wedding is over, take advantage of all that the city offers. Some of the best restaurants in world are in San Francisco. This provides a typical newly married couple with dozens of venue options with some great food! Of course wedding photography is so much better when the couple is comfortable and not sweating profusely.
North Beach Wedding in the Summer
Locals know that some of the best weather in the summer is in downtown San Francisco and the North Beach area. I particularly love North Beach because of all the excellent Italian restaurants throughout the district. Check out Tony’s Pizza for some of the best in town and also Sotto Mare if you love fish done Italian style. Get married at the Italian club or some of the other venues in the area. If you want more specific information, please contact me and I am happy to help you out.
San Francisco Wedding Photography Locations
Once the wedding is complete, you have so many options for great wedding photography. Everyone knows about the Palace of Fine Arts and The Legion of Honor, but what about Sutro Baths? Gorgeous! Crissy Fields with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background? Amazing! To top of it all off, you can go to San Francisco City Hall and get some spectacular wedding photos! Even with the fog, great photos are possible of The Golden Gate Bridge. You just have to get close to it. It actually makes for an amazing and appropriate effect to have the fog spilling over the bridge in the background.
