Small Wedding Venue

We are looking for a restuarant, banquet room or anything of the sort where we could have a wedding cermony and reception next month. There will be under 40 people. Looking for something other than a "hall" and are thinking an intimate restaurant. Tall order for short notice, I know but if you know of anywhere. Would consider San Francisco South to Bay Area. Appreciate any suggestions.

Totally out of the blue - but you might consider renting a Hornblower cruise: http://www.hornblower.com/hce/home/sf

All depends on your budget, but they most likely deal with this all the time and it would cover both the food, the view, and an experience.

Totally out of the blue as well, but here's a place in the Santa Cruz Mountains, south of San Francisco:

The Swedenborgian Church is beautiful and has a nice reception hall. My brother in law got married there, and I'd highly recommend it.

I've been to a couple of weddings at the Swedenborgian as well and I agree it's lovely.

Both the deYoung and Legion ate popular venues.

`Nuther vote for the Swedenborgian, IF you're lucky enough to be able to book into it, particularly on short notice. In addition to being drop dead gorgeous (you don't hear me saying that one too often.....), you'd be picking a location which has some serious ties with San Francisco and the Bay Area. The list of architects associated with various aspects of the site read like a who's who of San Francisco/San Francisco Bay Area architecture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries including A. Page Brown, Bernard Maybeck, and A.C. Schweinfurth, all recognized as being luminaries in the Arts and Crafts Movement (technically the First Bay Tradition, a precursor).

The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Financial District is a fabulous venue with several rooms. You could do the ceremony in one room, reception in others. It's a beautiful, 1930s style of architecture and decor.

The Marines Memorial Club would offer banquet rooms for the ceremony and reception, as well as hotel rooms for those from out of town. Their meeting rooms have great downtown views. (It's near Union Square.)

There's also a website www.sfpdv.com/ that shows private dining venues in San Francisco.

There is also a "Log Cabin" in the Presidio, where a friend had her wedding. Its right above the GGB. I don't know about dates, but worth a look.
