SF City Hall Small Wedding Ceremony
San Francisco City Hall Wedding
Economical wedding ceremony at City Hall, enjoy the stress free elegance.
City Hall was built-in 1915 as a palace for the people. It is the crown jewel of one of the finest ensembles of classical American Architecture. The ornate dome resting atop the 500,000 square foot structure is one of the tallest in the U.S. There are ten acres of Tennessee pink marble and 50,000 blocks of limestone lining the walls and floors.
There are approximately 2,000 weddings in City Hall a year. Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married here in 1954. In 1978, City Hall and the entire Civic Center was designated as a National Historic Landmark. In 1989, the Loma Prieta Earthquake severely damaged the building. San Francisco voters spent $300 million to restore the building. To protect against future earthquakes, an innovative base isolator system was installed below each support pillar.
The entire building is now separated from the ground and can sway up to 27 inches in any direction as a unit.The South Light Court features a variety of interesting historical and community exhibits. The ground floor hosts a rotating exhibit operated by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
