Gala Spectacular Wedding
Oakland   |   May, 2009   |   Sightseeing

"The district is famous for its role as a center of the 1960s hippie movement, a post-runner and closely associated offshoot of the Beat generation or beat movement, members of which swarmed San Francisco's "in" North Beach neighborhood two to eight years before the "Summer of Love" in 1967. Many who could not find space to live in San Francisco's northside found it in the quaint, relatively cheap and underpopulated Haight-Ashbury. The '60s era and modern American counterculture have been synonymous with San Francisco and the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood ever since. The area still maintains its bohemian ambiance, though the effects of gentrification are also apparent. Though Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream is now located at the famous Haight-Ashbury intersection, the neighborhood remains a thriving center of independent local businesses. It is home to a number of independent restaurants and bars, as well as clothing boutiques, booksellers (including The Booksmith, the site of a number of historic author events in the past), head shops and record stores including the well-known Amoeba Music. The cohabitation between throw-backs to the Fifties lounge scene, the organic and spiritual New Age ambiance via the Sixties, and the punk-rock scene of the Seventies and beyond is one of the neighborhood's most interesting and endearing aspects. http://www.lovehaight.org"

Meaghan and Tony's Wedding
San Francisco   |   April, 2009   |   Attraction

"This neighborhood is the center of the hippie universe, and still a dense district of quirky boutiques and cafes. Something happened here in the 60s, but man, if you remember it, you weren’t there."

Burlingame Wedding In June
Burlingame   |   June, 2008   |   Bay Area Attractions

"The area is known as The Haight and is a great place to see some real local San Francisco flavor. A little seedy but it's got some flower power as it was the cultural nerve-center of the 1960s hippy movement. The modern-day Haight preserves much of the verve and style that defined it during the '69 "Summer of Love" but now adds to the mix a healthy dash of capitalism. Alongside spike-headed punks and grey-headed burn-outs, you'll now find trendy retro-clothing stores, fantastic ethnic food, mellow sidewalk cafes, exotic boutiques, ultra-hip clubs and bars, used book crannies, and cavernous music stores including San Francisco's deservedly famous Amoeba Music."

Lauren and Brian's Wedding
San Francisco   |   October, 2007   |   Attraction

"Some psychadelic relics, colorful Victorians . . . but a lot of Starbucks."

Riquelen and Okem's Wedding
San Francisco   |   August, 2007   |   Attraction

"amed as the cultural nerve-center of the 1960s hippy movement, the modern-day Haight preserves much of the verve and style that defined it during the '69 "Summer of Love"--but now adds to the mix a healthy dash of capitalism. Alongside spike-headed punks and grey-headed burn-outs, you'll now find trendy retro-clothing stores, fantastic ethnic food, mellow sidewalk cafes, exotic boutiques, ultra-hip clubs and bars, used book crannies, and cavernous music stores--including San Francisco's deservedly-famous Amoeba Music. Though somewhat grittier than other spots around town (thanks to its location between two city parks), the Haight keeps alive the spirit of the era that created it, and it is a worthwhile place to check out--even if it's just long enough to have a coffee and reminisce about the good ol' days."
