Califorina Wedding Venue

Being in Casa de la Vista seems like the closest you can ever get to touching heaven. This is the place to go for a wedding where you want elegance and nature to meet. It has the best unobstructed view of downtown San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. The place makes you realize that sincerity in the midst of the finest things in the city is possible.


The Venues

It is located in Treasure Island. The place is newly renovated and you can hold your ceremony within high windows that allow the natural air to go in and make the air lighter and fresher. You will have a view of a beautiful courtyard with mature pines, eucalyptus, palms and olive trees that provide shade and a restful backdrop.


You can also bring the ceremony and celebration on the patio. The elegant settings will give you the best merging of silver, gold, and nature.


There is also the chapel that seems to directly contrast the elegance of the indoors with its wooden walls and wooden floor. It is a non-denominational chapel that draws its sacredness from its simplicity.


If you are feeling Victorian-like, you can exchange vows or share your feast on the Great Lawn which doesn’t only allow you to touch the greens but also bring your close to the shore.


There is also the Pavilion by the Bay for bigger groups. It is like a tent that opens your view to the breathtakingly beautiful California. Since it is designed so simply, you will enjoy the flexibility of setting up the place the way you want it.


If you want a close area to make sure that weather will not get in the way of your ceremony, you may want to check the Art Deco lobby in the historic Building One.
