When looking for the perfect venue to say your vows, exchange rings, and begin new adventures together, the Hotel Vitale is the essence of San Francisco. Opened in 2004, the Hotel Vitale sits right on San Francisco’s waterfront, with unrivaled views of the Ferry Building, the Embarcadero, the Bay Bridge, and historic Alcatraz Island.
The boutique hotel is both quaint and modern, simple and elegant, socially conscious and sophisticated. Inclusivity and wellness are the mantras of the Hotel Vitale. With lavender-scented hand towels available upon guests’ arrival, a farmer’s market right across the street, and a sidewalk aromatherapy garden on one of the hotel’s lovely terraces, you and your guests will feel right at home in this quiet haven hiding in plain sight from the urban hustle and bustle of San Francisco.
You may choose put on your wedding dress to greet your big day in the penthouse suite, with its own private soaking tubs on the terrace outside. You’ll have the time and perfect space to relax, reflect, and prepare for all of the memories that await you.
When considering your wedding photography, the Hotel Vitale has private hideaways and grand vistas to capture the memories of your monumental day. When he envisioned the Hotel Vitale, Chip Conley, the CEO of the hotel’s parent company, was looking to create a space that could nurture its visitors. “We live in an era when people are looking for style and sophistication without the pretension,” Conley said. You’ll see that timeless ambiance and authentic sophistication in your Hotel Vitale wedding photos as you look back at them over the years ahead.
There are various venues where you can say your vows at your Hotel Vitale wedding, many of which have stunning views of San Francisco. The Plaza Terrace is the largest and most grand. But the smaller Waterfront Terrace, boasting spectacular views of the Bay, is another sought-after location. Or if you want an intimate micro-wedding experience that you’ll share with only the people who know you best, you may choose the Cielo Terrace, with its adjoining suite which allows for indoor-outdoor celebrations. Or if you want to celebrate indoors, you can host your wedding in the American Lido Lounge, under a sumptuous chandelier.
Whichever location you choose at the Hotel Vitale, and whichever time of year you tie the knot, your wedding photography will be exquisite and mesmerizing. Be sure to step outside for some couples photos on the Embarcadero!
