If you’re on the hunt for a swanky city wedding location, then you can stop your search at The Ritz Carlton, San Francisco, a newly-renovated hot spot for society elite and a chic city wedding.
The perfectly positioned, Nob Hill property boasts 336 rooms and suites, all with a new look – to reflect the bay and modern men’s fashion. Trust us, grooms will love it! But not to fear brides-to-be, the ballroom and pre-function/cocktail hour spaces are dripping with romance and crystal chandeliers too – just the right blend of masculine and feminine with all the glitz and glamour you could want for your wedding day. The grey and blue hues create a sense of calming all around so you’ll be sure to walk down the aisle without so much as a jitter.
Before you say “I do,” consider a welcome dinner on the terrace of the presidential suite, one with stunning sunset views at cocktail hour. Or enjoy a high tea with your best gal pals in the lobby lounge in lieu of a bridal luncheon and then be sure to spend some time in the new spa coming soon (shhh…we can’t tell you what exactly, but it’s going to be amazing, and just a few weeks away, Nov 2015 opening).
Then when the wedding day comes, enjoy a delightful garden ceremony under a tent (something that’s hard to come by in this city), before heading to the grand ballroom, seating up to 500 or The Terrace Room for more intimate gatherings of up to 140.
A wedding in San Francisco also means great food and local cuisine. And The Ritz Carlton, San Francisco has that in spades. Local celebrity chef Michael Rotondo oversees Parallel 37, the hip restaurant just off the lobby, complete with a chef’s table if you want to treat your VIP’s or just be treated like one yourself! And of course the wine selections aren’t bad either with Napa and Sonoma just over the bay; you’re in an amazing selection!
And speaking of wine, if you’re a wine lover, then a visit to the JCB Tasting Lounge is a must-do! Enjoy a wine or bubbles flight paired with Chef Rotondo’s treats and get to know the local vintner-to-the-stars. The plush, velvet-clad, intimate space also makes for a remarkable place to propose or perhaps enjoy a honeymoon night out for two.
When you wed at The Ritz Carlton, San Francisco, there’s no reason to ever leave. But if you do, you’re a quick walk to China Town, Union Square, Ghirardelli Square and so much more. For a destination wedding, the city (and hotel) have endless options to keep you and your guests busy for days!
