Hi and congratulations on your upcoming elopement.  I live in SF and work very close to City Hall.

The weekday city hall package is $1000 for one hour Monday-Friday. 

There many photographers who specialize in city hall weddings. The prices very a lot. Just google SF city hall wedding photographers. 

The one thing to keep in mind is that it is always busy unless you go early in the morning. I mean the place is packed with selfie taking tourists who will most likely make taking photos a challenge. A co worker had a great photographer who was necessarily agressive to get good photos. 

I am vegan and I can tell you that you dining options are very limited. San Francisco is not very vegan friendly especially for fine dinning. Greens SF is vegetarian with a couple of vegan options.  I spent weeks contacting restaurants about a vegan reception just to be turned down.

Depending on your budget you may consider renting a house or apartment with a nice kitchen and having a vegan chef cook a romantic meal. 

After the wedding photos at the Palace of Fine Arts or near the Golden Gate Bridge would be very lovey. 

If you want the name of my co worker’s  photographer or my own message me. Also I think my caterer does private dining. Let me know if you would want me to check. 

Good luck

i second the palce of the fine arts and the golden gate bridge right after as they are on the waterfront. i also second a getting an airbnb and catering after a lil romp in the city after the ceremony. catering unless you want to cook for your guest which isnt bad if you have loads of time.
