Our wedding ended up being beautiful. We had a great sunny day at the ocean in San Francisco, wonderful food, excellent dj, and lots of fun with our friends and family. Will definitely remember the day for a long long time.
Excellent food, unbeatable beach location, and organized and efficient day of management by Masoud Fazeli. One of the other private event managers there was not all that friendly/helpful, please stay away from her (Virginia). Gorgeous location and overall fairly reasonable prices since venue is included as long as you meet a certain food/beverage minimum. The main negative with this caterer/venue is that there are no publicly published prices, you must negotiate with them on the food/beverage minimum, which seems a little odd. You never know whether you should be negotiating harder or if you are being taken advantage of, etc. I would have appreciated a published price list so that I knew what ballpark I was working with. The minimum we ultimately received for a Sunday in off season was overall about a thousand higher than what we got at other similiar restaurants, but due to the location, it might be worth your while. We decided a gorgeous sunset at the beach with great food was worth the 1k extra we burned (be aware that if you don't spend enough to meet your minimum, they charge you for it anyway). Overall, would do it there again!
Jerry Yoon photography was exactly what we wanted- high quality artistic wedding photography. We did not want the traditional posed wedding pictures and opted to go with these guys as they do candid, photojournalistic style coverage of your day that you might actually hang up on the wall as an art piece. We hired their assistant photographer and were very impressed with Aubrey's poise and calm manner. Haven't seen the pics yet so can't speak to the actual final quality of shots.
