    Aracely Cafe was the first and only wedding venue we looked at. It’s a hidden gem, tucked away on Treasure Island. Right away, we fell in love with the place and its story.

    Aracely was the perfect backdrop for our wedding. We had a lovely outdoor ceremony in the garden patio, cocktail hour in the beautiful cafe, and a romantic reception under the tented courtyard with string lights. It was special to be able to take sunset photos at the Treasure Island marina just a few minutes away, with a breathtaking view of the San Francisco skyline. We also love the story of Aracely—it was previously an elementary school that was transformed into the most charming cafe and event space. It symbolizes new life, just as our love story does.

    It was a dream to have a one-stop shop for our wedding. Aracely is a restaurant, and they served a delicious dinner for our guests. The place already has amazing decor—draping, plants, floral walls, wood accents—so you don’t need to add much yourself. Aracely also did all our linens and florals, and provided lanterns and candles for an extra touch.

    Linda is a true visionary and was a joy to work with. She’s an expert event planner and designer, and she helped us every step of the way. She has such an amazing eye, which is evident when you see the venue, and her consultation on everything from decorations to programming was priceless.

    We loved our wedding at Aracely, and the best part is that we can always go back for a nice dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

    Aracely is perfect :)

    We looked around at a bunch of different venues for a couple months, but it was difficult to find a place we loved for our guest count of 200. When we found Aracely, we knew almost immediately that this was it—beautiful sunlit garden area, cute cafe space, and just a dream of a courtyard with flowing white curtains topped off with string-lit skylight dome. We loved that they were able to do the food, drinks, furnishings, and reception set-up, and coordination internally, which helped us out so much and saved us from too much planning craziness.
    Linda and her team are super professional, knowledgeable, and have a keen eye for design, and Tina, our day-of-coordinator, was extremely kind, patient, flexible, and just wonderful to work with. Even with the typical wedding day chaos, the Aracely team somehow rolled with the punches and made everything work out really well :)
    The kitchen staff and menu selection are ON POINT. All of our guests loved the dishes, appetizers, and drinks, as did we!
    Located in an old elementary school on treasure island, Aracely takes an old structure and turns it into something beautiful.
    Thank you Aracely for the kindness, the deliciousness, and the loveliness you gave to our special day!

    Amazing Venue, Some Minor Hiccups

    Aracely Cafe is an absolutely stunning venue. The layout is perfect for any wedding and they have a great back up plan if it were to rain. The transition from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and finally to our reception was perfect. They also catered our food which was DELICIOUS. Our guests could not stop raving about how amazing the venue and kept asking us how we found the place.

    There were a couple of hiccups though. The wedding coordinator was not as responsive as we'd like on some things. I felt like the coordinator was so busy managing the facilities that it was potentially difficult for her to be 100% catered to our needs.

    Additionally, on the wedding day, the coordinator brought a different couple on a tour to see the venue. That is absolutely unprofessional and I was a little shocked that happened. Luckily it was quick, but the coordinator should be focused on our day and not having strangers see what our wedding looked like...

    Other than that, great venue and great price.
