One of the most beautiful locations in San Francisco the California Palace of the Legion of Honor Fine Art Museum is a stunning venue to consider for your wedding.
This is one of my favorite places to visit to allow myself some casual wandering and to enrich my artistic knowledge. Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Theresa and Matthew’s wedding at the Legion of Honor. With such an incredibly exquisite background the lovely couple’s photos turned out absolutely divine! Have a look for yourself at my original blog post here. Whether you’re considering hosting a wedding reception for 400 or a birthday bash for 50, the Legion of Honor offers a variety of spaces to make your private event memorable including the Balustrade Lawn, the Terrace Level and the outdoor Rodin Gallery. And no need to worry about deciding on your caterer, the museum also offers a short list of approved caterers who have hosted many previously successful events.
The Legion of Honor is located in Lincoln Park above the headlands with views of Downtown San Francisco, the coastal Pacific beaches and the cherished Golden Gate Bridge. The museum’s spectacular setting is contrasted by the striking French neoclassical building, inspired by the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur in Paris, and was dedicated on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 1924 by Adolph and Alma Spreckels to the people of San Francisco to honor the thousands of Californians who died in World War I. The impressive structure is stunning in design and brilliant with architectural emotion. It lends itself as the perfect backdrop for an elegant event.
