“I actually want a really small wedding. A private ceremony that’s shrouded in secrecy. I want something intimate. Something between me and my lover.”

Nicole D’Sett?mi

If you see yourself drawn to the idea of having your union with just a few of your closest loved ones in a city surrounded by love, a San Francisco intimate wedding will be perfect for you. As it is packed with awe-inspiring spots, the breathtaking 25,000 twinkling lights on the Bay Bridge add a bit of sparkle to your night of celebration. A true spectacle for an SF wedding photographer to capture! It’s just a matter of choosing the perfect location for your small gathering.

It all starts with embracing the fact that you will need to plan your SF intimate wedding despite it being simple. Below is a guide on what you should prepare.

  • Finalize your date, time, and location.
  • Hire your dream team. Don’t forget to get a florist to decorate your site and a NorCal wedding photographer to document your celebration of love.
  • Get permits if necessary.
  • Get a Marriage License.
  • Get married!

In a nutshell, two of the primary decisions you will make are the location and your wedding team. From elegant luxury hotels or exciting urban breweries to romantic restaurants or mesmerizing rooftop locations, all places can provide you the opportunity to create your dream SF intimate wedding.

You need a suitable venue with great food and simple decor in an already gorgeous place. But if you want to have a divine culinary experience with a serene atmosphere, restaurants like the Central Kitchen will give you such a feeling. The minimalist look of the place is pleasingly aesthetical for any NorCal wedding photographer, which instantly elevates your celebration. 

The wedding team you’ll be working with is equally important as your venue. It’s like finding a partner that shares the same vision as you. You need to scrutinize everything! Especially when choosing the right SF wedding photographer to capture your meaningful celebration.
