One of the most picturesque wedding sites in the Bay Area has something very few people ever have the privilege of seeing: a bird’s-eye view of the protected land around Crystal Springs Reservoir. San Francisco stores its precious drinking water in this jewel of a lake, and the city jealously guards access to the reservoir—only rangers, scientists and certain officials can visit the heavily wooded semi-wilderness surrounding it.
But if you wed outdoors at Wedgewood Crystal Springs, a banquet center and golf course, you are among the rare outsiders who get to enjoy this vista—and with it comes much more than simple bragging rights. The ceremony site, a city-owned meadow at the southern end of the fairways, has a gazebo that stands on a grassy knoll overlooking the reservoir. The view from here is sensational, with glistening waters below and tree-covered ridges behind it. In the distance, high hills slope toward the bay. There are no houses in sight, and deer often graze nearby. The backdrop is so spectacular that the gazebo needs little adornment—put some flowers in front or over the entry, and voilà, all eyes are upon it. There’s plenty of room for a limo to drop off the bride, and if she wants to add a little more pizzazz to the moment, she can arrive in a horse-drawn carriage. A smooth earthen aisle cuts through a beautifully tended lawn to the gazebo, where the couple exchanges vows.
The reception takes place up a tree- and greens-lined road at the banquet center. The main building, painted creamy white with gray-green trim, is set at the edge of gentle terraces that drop toward the reservoir. To reach its two banquet rooms and deck, you walk along a red-carpeted terrace that captures a sweeping panorama down to the golf course. Best of all is spotting the deer that placidly graze the course.
The Vista Room is the primary dining-reception area. Its entire west wall is windows and glass doors that open to the adjoining Vista Deck, a large glassed-in area shaded by a canopy. Whether you’re celebrating inside or out, the expansive view takes in the woods to the west and the neighboring hills and the golf course’s gorgeous landscape to the north.
Wedgewood’s all-inclusive packages offer the best values in the Bay Area, saving time and money and make planning your event here a breeze. Services range from a basic ceremony at the gazebo with seating (and, of course, the view!), to amenities such as invitations, DJ, meals, cake, beverages, florals and the honeymoon suite.
The elements for a fine, fine day are here in splendid array: the gazebo in its unforgettable setting; a personable, attentive staff; good food; fresh, sea-kissed air (the ocean is only a few ridges away); and nature’s intense blues and greens. Lastly, nearby Highway 280 makes Wedgewood Crystal Springs easily accessible from San Francisco, the Peninsula and the South Bay. Now, that’s a list that should satisfy anyone.
