My husband and I got married yesterday at the Seminary, and we are so thrilled we did! We can't say enough positive things about this place- it is so beautiful and magical, people kept saying they felt like they were in Europe. We had both the ceremony and reception on Geneva Terrace, and lucked out with clear skies in the 70's during the day (end of September). During the day you can see Mt. Tamalpais in the distance, and at night we danced under a sky full of stars, including some falling ones! Debby Carrey, the event manager, was always available to answer questions and was very accommodating. We used the lovely Shaw Guest house for the wedding party lodging and our rehearsal dinner, and loved it. Some of our guests stayed in the dorms for the weekend, and really enjoyed the convenience of being on campus. We have no regrets at all. Go with the Seminary!Sent on 09/24/2017

We had our ceremony in the Stewart Chapel and reception on the Geneva Terrace. This is an incredibly beautiful venue and our guests loved taking photos of themselves with mountains and castles in the background. We were so happy with our wedding experience - the venue coordinator, Debby, is extremely helpful, professional, down-to-earth, and very willing to share advice with you about how to use the space to its best advantage. The day of the wedding turned out to be a massive heatwave, and our reception was outside, so we were concerned about managing everything, but Debby did everything she could to help keep guests and vendors comfortable.Sent on 09/23/2017

My husband and I got married at SFTS on 7/2/2016. First off, this venue is amazing. The view is so pretty and the buildings look like Hogwarts. Definitely one of the most romantic places ever. We fell in love with it the moment we drove into the parking lot.Sent on 11/27/2016
We ended up having our ceremony on the patio outside of the church, overlooking the hills. I think the venue gave us about 4 hours to set up, have our ceremony, and clean up. We also got to use several rooms as the bride and groom's dressing areas. The bridal suite is beautiful. It has a grand piano, some really tall windows, mirrors, and a terrace that overlooks the ceremony location. We got some really good pictures here and the lighting was perfect. The venue also comes with white wedding chairs, which was perfect and helped us save money on rentals. Also, Debby was so flexible and professional. We had a person that was assigned to our wedding to help out with opening doors or answering any questions, and honestly that was such a help. Price for the venue was so reasonable. I would highly recommend having your wedding here!
- The location is a bit hard to find because Google maps tells you some weird directions.
- Parking is a bit limited. People needed to park on the hill and walk up to the terrace.
- We weren't allowed to move anything up using the elevator, so we had to get a bunch of volunteers to helps us lug sound system equipment and tables up the steep flight of stairs.
- It was pretty hot on the patio in the summer, so would recommend some type of shade, fan, or water for your guests.
