Free SF City Hall Wedding Planning
We have spoken about this in. various parts of this website, but I also wanted to dedicate a full page to make people aware of our free city hall wedding planning service. As a community service we offer complete San Francisco city hall wedding planning for anyone who desires it. There is no catch and you do NOT have to book us to be your wedding photographer to make use of this service. We understand that the process of putting together a wedding can be daunting, especially if you are from out of town. Over the years we have helped hundreds of engaged couples plan their wedding in San Francisco. I am a native San Franciscan with over 1,500 weddings photographed. I have seen it all and have worked with dozens of other wedding vendors and professionals. I am happy to share my knowledge with you at no charge and no obligation. If you contact us to utilize this service we will not even mention the possibility of being your city hall wedding photographer. We know that you are aware of what we do and so we also understand that if you want us, you will ask.
Recommend San Francisco Wedding Vendors
We have relationships with many excellent San Francisco wedding vendors and would be happy to put you in touch with our favorites. Although we cannot accept liability for these recommendations if something goes wrong, we feel confident that wedding professionals we suggest will do a great job for you. One important factor to be aware of is that we NEVER trade referrals with any of these other vendors. We only suggest the ones we have experience with and like. It doesn't matter to us one bit if they recommend us to others. One thing to be aware of is that this is a common practice, so make sure when accepting a recommendation from a vendor that they have worked with the person and know them personally. We can suggest the top notch wedding professionals in the area and even the best city hall wedding photographers! Just ask. Here is a partial list of the types of relationships we have with local vendors:
- Wedding Photographers
- Wedding Caterers
- Hair and Make-up
- Wedding Favors
- Wedding Planners
- Musicians (city hall approved)
- Local Reception sites
City Hall Wedding Planning
There is so much more to planning a wedding then simply suggesting vendors. Many of my clients want to know how do to accomplish tasks related to the wedding, even as basic as obtaining a Marriage license. The other very common question we receive is regarding timing. For example, the couple that wants to plan a reception or lunch or dinner after their city hall wedding will frequently want to know when to schedule the party. There are many factors that have to be considered, especially for San Francisco events. City Hall weddings rarely occur on time and if you are also using a wedding photographer for photos around the building after the ceremony this has to be factored in as well. With our experience we can usually make a pretty accurate recommendation for the best time to schedule your party to keep the day flowing smoothly and stress free. Parking, traffic and access are all other factors to consider when trying to schedule an after party in the city. We also become involved in the setting the timing of the beginning of the wedding day, especially if bridal prep and make-up are involved. We have discovered over the years that anything involving bridal prep will always take longer then anyone every suggests. So remember this if you are planning something soon. Allow almost double the time for the wedding and keep in mind that many of your guests might actually be putting on the finishing touch on their own clothes, hair and Make-up just before the wedding ceremony occurs, so be aware of that. Other types of planning issues we get involve with are helping the couple know what to bring for their city hall wedding and how to work with guests.
