Palace Hotel Wedding Photography
San Francisco, California
The Palace Hotel is a luxurious venue with gorgeous architecture and multiple spaces that can be utilized for weddings of all sizes. Some of the key spaces available are the Sunset Court, the French Parlor, and of course the Garden Court and the Gold & Grand ballrooms where most of the receptions are held.
The Garden Court
The Garden Court is the main central space at the Palace Hotel. Its iconic glass roof and giant chandeliers are absolutely stunning and is an amazing spot to use for portraits. The windows from the French Parlor open out to the Garden court, which makes it usable for some pretty epic shots from below.
Just outside the Garden Court, the light comes in beautifully into the hallway during the day.
The French Parlor is a more intimate space that overlooks the Garden Court. The large stained-glass windows open up providing a clear view into the glass roof beyond. The aesthetic is perfect for classic portraits. The scale also is really nice for a more intimate Palace Hotel wedding with fewer guests.

The Palace Hotel’s Sunset Court is a great spot for a ceremony or cocktail hour. It’s an open space with an impressive skylight that provides great natural light.
Gold & Grand Ballrooms
The Gold Ballroom is the smaller of the two ballrooms in the Palace Hotel. As its name suggests, it features gold accents along the coffered ceilings and walls. The drapes along the tall windows add to the ballroom’s luxurious aesthetic. Though smaller in comparison to the Grand Ballroom, the Gold Ballroom can accommodate about 400 guests in a banquet setting (without a dance floor).
The Grand Ballroom can support upwards of 720 in a banquet setting without a dance floor. Like the Gold Ballroom, the Grand Ballroom features massive chandeliers and coffered ceilings. The room also features doors with inlaid mirrors throughout the space.
