The Wedding Place

Did you know there are free tours of San Francisco's City Hall conducted on regular basis during the week? A volunteer docent leads the hour-long tour through public and a few private areas. Recently, I took advantage of this program as I have not been inside in decades. Everyone in the group was from out of town and I felt a little guilty as I am a native San Franciscan.

The City Hall is not only a busy place to conduct government and city business, but it is a popular location to hold weddings during the week. A quick 30 minute service will set you back $99 for the marriage certificate plus $75 for the County Clerk to conduct the ceremony. A more private event with 100 guests will be $1,002 or one held during a Saturday is $4,000 for up to 200 guests.

While I was there for my tour, I saw a few couples taking their photos in the rotunda during their special day.
