Established in May 1979, the Sikh Center of San Francisco Bay Area, at El Sobrante, otherwise knows as the El Sobrante Gurdwara, is a beautiful building perched on a serene hilltop. The building features large golden domes on top of clean white and tan exterior walls.
The Gurdwara is a great place for a Sikh wedding, with plenty of interesting and creative opportunities on and around the temple grounds. Below are a few sample images for various parts of a wedding day.
The large driveway right outside of the El Sobrante Gurwara is ideal for an upbeat, celebratory Baraat.
The entrance doors of the Sikh temple is where the Milni takes place.
The ceremony site is incredible at the El Sobrante Gurdwara, with a sky light that creates a natural spotlight around the bride, groom and Granthi. The marble floors create a reflective surface for a sense of symmetry to the entire scene. And the large balconies offer opportunities for our photographers and videographers to capture various angles of the special moments.
Nearby, there are plenty of options in El Sobrante and surrounding cities for couples session photos for your bride and groom. These parks are perfect if you’re looking for woods and nature as the backdrop for you wedding photos in the bay area.
For visitors: The site is open to drop-in visitors from 5:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Langar is given daily, free of cost, to all visitors, Sikh or non-Sikh. Visitors must cover their hair, be sober, have no drugs, alcohol, or tobacco products in their possession, and must enter barefoot after washing their feet.
