Any brides out there do their ceremony and reception at SF City Hall without spending a crazy amount? I love the venue and would love help from brides who have married here on lighting, sound, catering, and rentals. I’m worried about cutting the wrong corners.

Just FYI, doing the reception at City Hall in SF is VERY expensive, imo. It totally depends on your budget, but we looked into it and it was around $4K just to rent the venue and didn’t cover anything else.
I would advise you if you do end up having your wedding there to disregard the list of vendors they give you (we got one when we considered just renting for an hour to have our ceremony). You can find much cheaper caterers than the ones on their list.
Also beware of "hidden fees" there, like the coordinator and planners they require you to have that also have a minimum number of hours.

Hi NY SF Bride, I was just going to say that you might find more resources on the San Fran-specific Local Board. Its a bit misleading since this is titled the "Northern California" board and SF is IN Northern California 🙂 But I think this board is more Sacramento-focused. If you look under the specific San Francisco local board, there are a lot of leads and information and you might have more luck with responses. Good luck!! 🙂
