Seven Attractive Southbay Wedding Venues to Explore

Fall weddings have always been popular in the Bay Area, with September and October the most popular. June and February weddings still top wedding date lists nationally, but fall weddings are definitely on trend. And Bay Area wedding venues offer spectacular settings for indoor and outdoor weddings. This is because the weather and scenery in the fall is often picture perfect for an outdoor ceremony and reception. And, with the fall harvest, your catered wedding reception will also delight your guests with local seasonal produce.
