San Francisco Wedding Venue
191 Ave of the Palms
San Francisco, California 94130
Named “Best Place To Say ‘I Do’ in San Francisco” by 7x7 Magazine, Treasure Island’s Casa de la Vista has the most spectacular views of The City you’re likely to find anywhere, and it offers a number of other attractions (starting with plenty of parking and flexibility) that make it well worth the visit.
Casa de la Vista has hosted all types of events. Formerly an officer’s club, the newly renovated facility boasts a gloriously unobstructed view of downtown San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. Celebrations are held in one large room, whose façade of windows and high, beamed ceiling give the space a light, open feeling. Windows along the back of the room look out onto a lovely courtyard, enclosed on three sides by the building. All around, mature pines, eucalyptus, palms and olive trees provide shade and a restful backdrop. Weather permitting, you can use the patio for cocktails and appetizers, or perhaps for your ceremony. Wine Valley Catering, the exclusive caterer for this site, can help you with all your food and beverage needs.
Just a few steps away is another ceremony possibility: the wooden chapel. This redwood-paneled sanctuary is nondenominational and minimally ornamented, aside from two stained-glass windows (one of which depicts Jesus). However, during the warmer months, you might want to take full advantage of the magnificent views by saying your vows on the Great Lawn—a sweeping expanse of grass as close to shore as you can get—or in one of several tree-sheltered areas. Not just for ceremonies, the lawn can accommodate a variety of events, from a garden reception to a corporate picnic.
For groups of up to 400, consider the adjacent Pavilion by the Bay, a new permanent tented structure that will shelter you from the elements while preserving the dramatic bay views. The Pavilion works well for grand weddings, and is also popular for fundraisers and corporate functions.
Nearby is another option for larger events: the beautiful Art Deco lobby in the historic Building One, originally built for the 1939 San Francisco World’s Fair. This space is wonderful for product launch parties, fundraisers and other galas. If you’d like to reserve any of the island’s event sites in combination, go right ahead—they’re all within walking distance of each other.
Perfectly positioned between the East Bay and San Francisco, Treasure Island’s venues balance a relaxed, pastoral feeling with the glamour of city lights. This is one place where you and your guests can meet in the middle without compromising anything.
