Palace Garden Wedding Venue
San Francisco Palace Garden Wedding Venue
The Palace Garden was built around a small lagoon. The lagoon was intended to echo those found in classical settings in Europe, where the expanse of water provides a mirror surface to reflect the grand buildings and an undisturbed vista to appreciate them from a distance.
Ornamentation includes Bruno Louis Zimm’s three repeating panels around the entablature of the rotunda, representing “The Struggle for the Beautiful”, symbolizing Greek culture. Ulric Ellerhusen supplied the weeping women atop the colonnade and the sculptured frieze and allegorical figures representing Contemplation, Wonderment and Meditation.
The underside of the Palace rotunda’s dome features eight large inserts, which originally contained murals by Robert Reid. Four depicted the conception and birth of Art, “its commitment to the Earth, its progress and acceptance by the human intellect,” and four the “golds” of California (poppies, citrus fruits, metallic gold, and wheat).
