Hi,  I don’t know if you’ve already ruled out the Shakespeare Garden.  I attended a wedding there ths past summer and it was gorgeous. They rented cable cars to transport us from Union Sq.  As I recall, when we arrived they were still setting up the chairs.  We all waited a bit before being seated, but it wasn’t really wasn’t an issue for us guests.  And the venue itself is gorgeous and surprisingly private.  I don’t know if that’s helpful.

 I’ve also been to a wedding at the Legion of Honor which has an *incredible* view.  I have no idea about costs, though, it might be possible to do only the ceremony there.

All this said, though, I think Crissy Field sounds like the prettiest venue of all these.  I don’t know about the logistics, but I imagine if you don’t mind that it can’t be completely private something can work.

One place we really wanted to get married was Inspiration Point. So beautiful. But you do take a chance with the weather, and you will still have set up logistics to worry about. http://www.presidio.gov/event/rental/inspirationpoint/Ceremony.htm

As for other Golden Gate Park settings:

Sorry, I don’t think I am much help. 

Where are you holding the reception? There is always the Chapel in the Presidio that I am pretty sure is non-denominational.

Hi Kristay, I am actually having my ceremony in the Shakespeare Garden in 2 weeks (April 18). The logistics took some planning, since they only give you the Garden for 2 hours; we have it from 4 until 6pm, ceremony at 5. I was able to find a reasonably-priced chair rental place out of San Mateo called Your Party Rental Company, (http://www.yourpartyrentalcompany.com/) and have them deliver and set up the chairs as well as take them down within specific time windows. For me, they will deliver and set up between 4-4:15 (so things should be done if there are any early birds) and they will come break down and collect between 5:45 and 6pm. I am getting the white wooden chairs and a small table and umbrella for the musicians from them, all delivered and set up and collected, and the total comes to just over $400 – which is really good compared to some of the other places I called around to, who were charging double that! FYI, Im paying $1/chair extra for the set-up and break-down but you may be able to enlist people to do that. You also save a BUNDLE if you can have someone pick up and drop the stuff off – Im from out of town and couldnt do that though. Lastly, the white plastic chairs are quite a bit cheaper than the wooden. Abbey Rentals was another place I spoke with at the lower-price end of the scale, and they do deliveries to GG Park regularly which is a plus.
