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.
