Help !
I've looked at 40+ venues in person, and still have not found the one. Can anyone provide some thoughts on places or any help at all would be great. I am looking for the following:

1. I have all out of town guests (but we live in sf), so i want a place with a nice it be city view or vinyards or mountains...but something to give them for coming so far.

2. We want to bring our own drinks into the venue

3. I'd like both indoor and outdoor. Mainly because im soo scared it will rain if i only get an outdoor venue.

I've seen and liked the flood mansion, but im afraid that with all additional things needed, the cost will be way out of range.

Seen the brazilian room in berkley, which is great, but cants stand the bathrooms or the fact that the upkeep is not great. Same with the presidio buildings and fort mason stuff.

I just wsant to find a place with good upkeep and nice veiw. Thoughts?

What's your estimated headcount?

We had our reception at the Westin St. Francis, the space on the top floor is beautiful and has amazing 360 degree views with floor to ceiling windows. The service was great, I highly recommend checking it out.

Hi there - we are going to have about 100 - probably more along the lines of 80 people. I'd like to stay away from a banquet hall look or hotel, because i want the wedding to have a flow to it. We will have two different (short) ceremonies (one religious) so i'd like there to be several spaces.

I'll take a look at the westin..thanks!

Hotel Vitale was perfect for our wedding as all of our guests (and us!) were from out of state.

My wedding was at the Randall Museum--it had great views and I loved the vibe, but the indoor space is more the museum and theater. I posted a vendor review here: .

Good luck!

check out the haas lilienthal house on franklin st. not really a big view. and i'm not sure how much you can use their outdoor space. but otherwise might be a great fit for you.

Cliff House has amazing views and can accommodate 80 people and pretty reasonable on pricing.
