Some of our tips for your san francisco city hall wedding

1. Have professional make-up and hairstyling done for your San Francisco City Hall wedding. It will help you look the best for your photography session and help create beautiful pictures.

2. Arrive 20 min in advance to avoid the check-in line for the ceremony.

3. If you are having a lot of guests and would like more privacy, consider a private ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. You will get a private use of the Mayor's Balcony or 4rth Floor North or South Gallery.

Here's more information on the special weekday wedding package  at the official City Hall website.

4. When you arrive at City Hall, you'll need to go to room #168 (The County Clerk's Office) to have your marriage license witnessed. If you're eloping and do not have a witness, we'll be happy to serve as a witness for you.

Parking information

It's extremely difficult to find parking on the streets around the San Francisco City Hall. One option is try to find the meters - just make sure you have lots of quarters. Another option is to park in the Civic Center Parking Garage which has its entrance on McAllister St., near the corner of McAllister and Polk.  Keep in mind that the garage may be a little difficult to spot.
