Situated at the top of Lincoln Park, the Legion of Honor is a museum wedding venue located in San Francisco, California. Constructed to commemorate California’s soldiers, this stunning Beaux-arts building is one of the most iconic sights in San Francisco. Couples will immediately be impressed by the exterior’s large round fountain, impressive columns, and unbeatable views of the city’s landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge. Inside, they will marvel at one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in the United States, European paintings, and 3,000-year-old ancient art. With the Pacific Ocean and Land’s End just steps away, this venue provides an unforgettable experience in one of the country’s most vibrant cities.

Facilities and Capacity
For your special day, the Legion of Honor can be rented in its entirety or you can book individual rooms and galleries. Ceremony spots are numerous and include outside on the Balustrade Lawn, where you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands. You can also exchange your vows surrounded by white columns and Rodin’s Thinker in the Court of Honor, which can seat 500. Intimate ceremonies are held in the Rodin Galleries, while the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Theater has backstage dressing rooms for getting ready. Receptions can be hosted in the Rodin Galleries, the Court of Honor with tenting, and the Terrace Level. This Terrace Level houses the Hall of Antiquities, the Café, and a patio where you can sip cocktails with loved ones. If you book the whole museum, you will be able to customize these gorgeous spaces to suit your needs and preferences.

Services Offered
Most ceremony and reception sites are available starting at six o’clock or six-thirty, as the Legion of Honor is open during the day. However, the museum is closed on Mondays, so events can begin at an earlier time on those days. Outside catering must come from one of the venue’s preferred vendors, for which a list will be provided. These eateries will serve gourmet food and drinks that capture the flavors and abundance of the California coastal region.

    Legion of Honor was my dream wedding venue. We reserved our wedding date one year in advance (when they start opening dates), paid the deposit, and started hiring vendors. Eight months before our wedding, we were told that they no longer could host our wedding because one of the art directors determined they wanted to book an exhibit (a very uncharacteristic one for the venue and one that would not allow food or beverage) in the galleries. It was devastating.

    Our wedding planner said she had never experienced anything like this and was also appalled with how they handled the situation. While they created significant stress and quite the scramble for us, they did refund our deposit and a few fees we incurred that were non-refundable.
