Pier 70

Pier 70 Wedding at the Bay Area




Located in the center of San Francisco, Pier 70 is undoubtedly not the dream venue that most brides would dream of. After more than 150 years of operations in shipbuilding and repair, the pier surrounds itself with a unique charm.

The entire site is a 69-acre property owned by the Port of San Francisco. The combination of shoreline, industrial use, and many impressive historical buildings make this venue special.

If you are up for a challenge and something different, we highly recommend to check out the Pier 70 for your wedding!

Changing up the pace as we switch from rusty walls and steel pipes to gardens and flowers. The Conservatory of Flowers is in the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. This Bay Area wedding venue was built back in 1879 and is celebrating it’s 140th birthday this year.

If you love flowers and want to escape the hustle of, the city, you might want to check out this gem in particular. You can celebrate inside the greenhouse or even outside, surrounded by many tropical plants.

The Pearl
