Introducing Curated COVID-SAFE Wedding Venues List

Updated weekly

Last updated 09-14-2020

For the last month we've reached out to over 100 wedding venues in San Francisco Bay Area. We've discovered a very small number of venues who can safely host a wedding during COVID.

If you are planning a small wedding in the 2nd part of 2020, you are very likely to struggle with finding an open venue. We've received many inquiries from couples who are trying and failing to find a suitable venue. So we've decided to personally create a list of places which are trying to stay open in the midst of pandemic.

The situation is very complex. All wedding venues are under tremendous financial stress as cancellations and postponements are still piling up. For many venues, opening up the facilities for smaller weddings is not financially feasible. The safety regulations are very strict and require costly arrangements and procedures.

The venues we have listed below actually opened up their facilities to couples who are planning their intimate weddings during covid. However, as much as we want this information to be accurate, please discuss the plans directly with the venues. Regulations are changing daily - a venue that may be offering to host a wedding today, may be closed tomorrow. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information.

We will keep working on the list, adding new venues as they reopen. We worked in most of these venues and can make recommendations based on your preferences (contact us). Each place is unique and will definitely affect how your wedding photos will look. If you already have a venue but need help with planning an elopement, here is our recently published elopement guide.
