Cliff House Wedding

No clouds in July? Truly a blessing for S&M’s Cliff House Wedding this past weekend. For over a century and a half, the Cliff House has been one of The City’s most familiar and beloved landmarks. What most people don’t realize is that the Cliff House is also a remarkable place for a wedding or special event. Originally built in 1863, it’s gone through a number of incarnations in its long and illustrious life and is now more captivating than ever.
All of the glories of a Pacific sunset to the west and misty Ocean Beach stretching southward can be viewed through floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. If you hold your ceremony on the private Terrace, you’ll have the beach and the Pacific as your backdrop while you face Seal Rock. Afterwards, invite your guests inside the Terrace Room for cocktails followed by dinner and dancing. A palette of muted sand dune tones is carried through the chairs, carpet and window treatments; seven large framed mirrors run along the wall opposite the windows, brightening the room and reflecting the view. (Consider having your cake table in front of one of the mirrors.) There’s often an extended dusk here—the kind you get when you’re out at sea. With any luck, that lingering glow will illuminate the room all during your reception. An adjacent dedicated kitchen turns out updated classic cuisine for your private party, so there’s no conflict with restaurant dining.

Come rediscover this uniquely San Franciscan treasure. Its mesmerizing clifftop location and exceptional sea views make it well worth the trip.
