Like the throngs at City Hall, in the Castro, and beyond, we at oM SF were giddy at the strides toward equality that were made when the Supreme Court overturned Proposition 8. And we thought we’d celebrate the best way we know how: By putting together a guide to beautiful gay wedding venues in California.
Now, full disclosure: I don’t eye bridal magazines in the grocery story checkout line, or pause at boutique windows to consider which gown would show off my collarbones best. I’m not that girl with a Pinterest page dedicated to Mason jar centerpieces and picture-perfect wedding venues. The idea of being force fed cake does give me a certain thrill, but that’s as far as I go with wedding plans. I draw the line at cake, people.
So when we decided to find great same-sex wedding destinations in California, I felt like I was ordering my first drink: clueless and sticker-shocked. That’s why I called in the “I do” crew–three of San Francisco’s flyest wedding gurus, who helped me put together a list of the best places for couples to make history and celebrate their special day.
