We only rented the 4th Floor balcony for an hour, which having managed even spaces myself I know is a small booking, but we were treated very well through the entire process. They were helpful and responsive to any questions we had and with the beautiful City Hall as a backdrop, it was perfect and needed no other decor.

I was so excited to learn that I could have a private ceremony at sf city hall. It's such a beautiful building. I was married on a Friday at noon so eventhough my ceremony location was on the 4th floor balcony and closed off to foot traffic, it was still a little loud but lively. It didn't interfere with my ceremony at all. I've heard that ceremonies held on tues/wed are quieter. The events dept was very helpful in helping me reserve my date and ceremony location. They provided me with a list of preferred vendors such as the officiant and musicians. I went with their recommendations and everything turned out wonderfully. Private ceremonies on the weekdays are an hour long. Seems like a short amount of time but it turned out to be more than enough time for the ceremony and for pictures afterwards. You can also rent chairs and tables from city hall as well. I've always wanted an outdoor ceremony but due to the temperamental weather in sf I opted for this gorgeous venue. I have no regrets. They don't make buildings like city hall anymore. I can stare at the details forever and not get tired of it. Pictures come out amazing too!

There's a reason why SF City Hall is a tourist attraction. It's grand, spectacular and breathtaking. It's the most spectacular location in SF with easy access to parking. You do not need a lot of decor as the architecture is very historic. Our guests still rave about our wedding. It truly was a fairy tale wedding come true for us. Service was pretty straight forward as its a public building available for rent. Flexibility was great as we had a large wedding and they accommodated everything we needed.

Very professional staff at the S.F. City Hall! We had our wedding ceremony held at the 2nd floor Mayor's Balcony. We only rented the space for 1 hour, and you really don't need more than 30 minutes for the ceremony itself. This city hall is amazingly classy and artistic - what a gorgeous place to get married. Hard to beat it in terms of cost effectiveness too ;)

4.5 stars.

As a wedding venue in San Francisco, maybe even most of the United States, nothing beats City Hall. We checked out a bunch of different elegant places in SF, Julia Morgan Ballroom, The Green Room, The Bentley Reserve and a few other places but as soon as my wife, then fiancee at the time, saw City Hall, we knew it was the place.

A lot of our guests were posting pictures on Facebook during the ceremony while we were standing on the steps and people were stunned by the venue and curious where the wedding was held. If you've never been you need to check it out. The architecture, columns, marble floors and details are out of this world and amazing.

The only reason I gave it a half star deduction is because it is a pricey place to rent, close to $15K in our situation and there is a lot of required paperwork, but it was well worth it.

All of our guest said it was the most beautiful, elegant wedding they have ever attended. Check out our wedding video and you will see how beautiful this venue can be.

What's nice about City Hall is it can somehow hold 300 - 500 people and yet still feel intimate. If you can afford it, nothing tops City Hall for your wedding venue. Evey penny was worth it. And Elsie and the rest of the events staff are very helpful.

Choosing City Hall was one of the best decisions we made regarding our dream SF wedding.

The structure and ambiance of City Hall is unmatched. For an indoor wedding in San Francisco you will be hard pressed to find something at grand and breathtaking. It's not cheap and getting the venue is not easy, but if you can land a date - you won't be disappointed. The process and paperwork might be more than other places, but it's well worth it and the City Hall staff was really friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommend for anyone who can foot the bill.

We got married in San Francisco City Hall on April 2011. The City Hall was absolutely perfect. Our appointment time was at 3:00pm and we were the last couple to be married. The judge was very nice and accomodating. Since we were the last couple to be married, she asked us where in City Hall we wanted to get married. We chose the 4th floor and it was amazing. We had the whole 4th floor all to ourselves. It was the perfect place for us and for our families. We had 20 guests and everyone was just amazed at the location.

My fiance and I wanted an intimate ceremony in a cool space in San Franciso and City Hall was just that. The archetecture is gorgeous and the ceremony was short and sweet. Make sure to book your date early, there were like 30 other wedding happening the Friday we got married. Also, the cost of the ceremony was only $75.
(this review is just for the ceremony, we did not have a reception at City Hall)

City Hall is a gorgeous venue, but they hide a lot of costs from you when you go in for an initial meeting with Elsie.

Don't be surprised if the bill ends up being 3 to 4 times what you initially imagined and proposed in your budget.

Their list of caterers is very limited, you will get hit with a random security guard charge because it's a government building, and you have to set up a tent outside in their parking lot to cook food in--tent fee is close to 10k.

If we'd known all these things when we first looked at City Hall, there's no way we would have chosen this venue.

Its a beautiful setting, near a central area of San Francisco. It's close to Main Library, Farmer's Market, Asian Art Museum, etc. The inside was gorgeous. No wonder some high schools reserve this space for their prom. My guests had a wonderful time. I highly recommend and won't ever forget my wedding day.

San Francisco City Hall was a beautiful place to have a wedding on a tight budget and timeline. The only thing I disliked about it was that there was a meeting on the floor where we did our vows, so people would walk by at times, but it didn't really bother me that much.

This is a beautiful venue and free with the cost of a liscence! Downside is that your wedding party must be small, 6-8 people, and if you're interested in having the ceremony in the atrium it is defnitely in public! But that was fine with us, and the photos are incredible!
