About Ritz Carlton, San Francisco Weddings

Of all of the wedding venues and event centers in San Francisco, the Ritz Carlton is the household name that conveys luxury, elegance, and attention to fine detail. Centrally located on Nob Hill near Union Square, the 1909 historic building still maintains its neo-classical facade. A Ritz Carlton San Francisco wedding is both a grand affair and a homage to San Francisco’s history.

Wedding Ceremonies at Ritz Carlton, San Francisco

The Ritz Carlton San Francisco offers two wedding venues to host your ceremony and reception. You may choose to celebrate on the red-brick courtyard terrace, where guests can move easily between the indoor tent (set up for the wedding ceremony pictured below) and the outdoor patio, where guests can admire the beautiful rose and herb gardens during the day or dance under twinkling lights and Bay Area stars at night.

How can we accommodate our guests who aren’t local to the Bay Area?

The San Francisco International Airport is a 15-minute drive from Ritz Carlton San Francisco, and the famous San Francisco cable car stops right out front of the hotel. You may reserve rooms and suites at the Ritz Carlton for your out-of-town guests.

Do we need to use the on-site caterer for our Ritz Carlton San Francisco wedding?

The Ritz Carlton does require all wedding parties to use their proprietary caterer, but brides and grooms may choose to bring their own wine and cake, in which case there is a $35/per bottle uncorking fee and an $8/per guest cake-slicing fee. These fees are waived if couples use the cake and wine provided by the caterer.

Does the Ritz Carlton provide wi-fi?

Wi-fi is provided for your wedding party and guests throughout the facility.

The Ritz Carlton San Francisco is located at 600 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94108.
