Elope to San Francisco - Comments

While you elope to San Francisco and the weather conditions make it dangerous to proceed with parts of your California Elopement Wedding, the itinerary might be adjusted.

All ceremony locations require a permit. But I will be guiding you through the complex logistics of obtaining one

We’re LGBTQ+ friendly and accepted! We have done more than a dozen of LGBTQ+ weddings and elopements and would love to survive and empower this beautiful community further more!

You can elope to San Francisco with the possibility to get legally married. We can help you through the process.

For this, generally, couples should start planning 3 month prior in any ceremony locations within San Francisco. We have a lot of great locations for outdoor/indoor ceremonies and we offer free location matching consultation for the couple who book us.

On their actual California Elopement Wedding day, the couple will need to bring along their passports, driver’s license, or any government-issued photo ID and their marriage license with them.

They will need at least one witness (it could be me or their family or friends) and the officiant to sign on their marriage license. Or at two witnesses’ signatures if they’re self-uniting.

Lastly, they could also choose to have their marriage confidential so they don’t need witnesses at all. It’s to protect LGBTQ+ communities/certain religions or any other couples who wish not to make their marriage public.

  • 15% directly payable as a deposit to our platform – a 21-day money-back guarantee applies.
