Tucked away from busy city streets, in the heart of Pacific Heights, lies San Francisco’s most unexpected hidden jewel. Unlike any other venue in the city, the Swedenborgian Church combines rich historic details with a warm, candlelit atmosphere to make your special day uniquely yours, creating memories that will last long after your ceremony.

Behind century-old iron gates, you’ll discover a lush and serene garden leading to a one-of-a-kind sanctuary, where you will be greeted by a roaring fire and the fine craftsmanship of days past. A cozy reception house with its Mediterranean-style courtyard sits just across the garden and features two fireplaces, fine art, and a charming library.

At the Swedenborgian Church, your wedding won’t be average—it will be extraordinary

Services are non-denominational and can be performed by anyone who is legally allowed to officiate wedding ceremonies in the state of California.

Capacity for the church is 120, and for receptions 100. Read less

My then fiance found this wedding venue online. It was named one of the 3 top wedding venues in San Francisco. We instantly fell in love with it once we scrolled through the pictures. A quaint historic small church was exactly what we were looking for. Ashley, the events coordinator, helped us every step of the way. Her email replies were fast as well as informative, which was very important to us as we were working overseas at the time. She answered and clarified every question we had. I had sent my cousins over to take a look at the venue for us. Even though Ashley could not make it to meet them, she made sure someone was there to show them around. She also was flexible with our payment schedule. She accommodated every request we made. On our big day, Holly was the person who was there to assist us. Our wedding ran a bit late, but she helped us in cleaning up so we could try to finish up by our scheduled time. I would recommend this venue to anyone who was looking to have a small wedding with close family and friends.

We couldn't have hoped for a better venue (and all-round service) for our wedding at Swedenborgian Church.

It was perfect. The venue itself is even more beautiful in person than it is in photos, and everybody we worked with (Ashley, Holly, Dana, and of course Reverend Lee) were exceptionally professional and accommodating.

My (now) wife and I especially loved our meetings with Reverend Lee in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding. We came to look forward to these meetings and getting to know the Reverend in general (note: we don't identify as religious), and as a result he put us at complete ease during our wedding ceremony itself.

We honestly couldn't recommend Swedenborgian Church enough. Our guests have since told us how much they loved the venue (including the attached Parish House, which we used as our reception venue), and while we were having our photo taken outside the church directly after the ceremony someone jogged by, offered her congratulations, and told us she was also married at Swedenborgian!

My wife and I got married at the Swedenborgian Church this summer and I only positive things to say about it. The staff, Reverend Lee, and everyone involved with the venue were professional and easy to work with. Everything went as we hoped (and better!). I couldn't recommend a better place to get married.

The Swedenborgian Church did a really fantastic job with our wedding ceremony and reception. They matched us up with our wonderful officiant, Rev. Rachel Rivers. The Church is gorgeous, and the Swedenborgian team took care of wonderful touches, including lighting the fireplace and beautiful candles for the ceremony. Ashley, Shannon and team worked seamlessly with our vendors (La Bonne Cuisine Catering, Sebastien Sanges Floral Design, and Pretty Please Bake Shop). They were extremely responsive to requests and questions, and helped with planning (including a helpful wedding planning document). Shannon was our wedding hostess the day of the wedding, and really went out of her way to ensure that everything went smoothly. The Swedenborgian Church Parish House is perfect for a small reception -- we had 40 guests for a seated dinner. The entire planning process was a delight. We had a blast the day of the wedding, as did our guests.

My (now) wife and I had a great experience and wedding at the Swedenborgian Church. The location was beautiful and we especially enjoyed working with Rev. Junchol Lee leading up to the ceremony. He did a great job counseling us in general as well as guiding us through the day itself. He was like an ocean of calm: just was we needed on a very intense day!
