At Joie de Vivre Hotels, we’ve always got love on our mind, and with the holiday season fast-approaching – along with all the gatherings, family time and engagements it brings – we’re here to help you get a jump on wedding planning, with tips from the experts at Hotel Vitale and The Marker San Francisco.
Let The Location Shine: Hotel Vitale is San Francisco’s only luxury waterfront hotel, and the hotel’s event venues take full advantage of the location. The Vista Terrace offers panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and opens onto a spacious rooftop balcony, while Americano Restaurant’s 3,000-square-foot patio can accommodate up to 300 guests and offers an unbeatable vantage point for Bay Lights viewing. The Marker is located in Lower Nob Hill, near Union Square, and in the recently updated Bellevue Ballroom, floor-to-ceiling windows usher in the warmth and glow of the surrounding theater district.
Keep It Simple: When you select a beautiful hotel as your venue, there’s no need for over the top embellishments. Many couples at Hotel Vitale opt to embrace the natural, urban aesthetic and keep decor simple, yet elegant, and the Bellevue Ballroom at The Marker blends architectural elements of the turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts building with a sophisticated contemporary style.
Consider a Cocktail Party: Instead of a sit-down reception, let friends and family mingle and dine in a casual setting (and keep a seating chart off your to-do list!). Then, your guests will dance the night away beneath the Bellevue Ballroom’s chandeliers, or on a rooftop terrace overlooking the San Francisco waterfront.
Take Advantage of Neighborhood Amenities: The Marker is steps from some to the best museums, theaters, and shopping that San Francisco has to offer, and Hotel Vitale is surrounded by sights that include the Ferry Building, Cupid’s Span, and the Embarcadero waterfront. These local attractions also make for great photo shoots!
Enjoy Your Day: Hire a day of wedding coordinator to manage the details and get everyone and everything in place. Don’t let a ton of tiny problems create stress. Live in the moment and create memories that will last a lifetime!
Hotel Vitale and The Marker are hosting a joint wedding showcase Sunday, October 30th from 2-5pm. If you’d like to attend the complimentary event, RSVP here.
