We love the Marin Art and Gallery Center because it offers the engaged couple virtually everything they would want in a wedding venue and it is close to San Francisco. Booking your wedding here allows you to have every single event at your wedding at the same location. They even have a very nice room for bridal prep. It is super large and well lighted. This makes it a great place for wedding photography during the bride's preparations with her bridesmaids. They even will bring food and snacks for the wedding party during this pre-wedding event. For those brides who do not want their future husband to see them before the ceremony (most of them) the Marin Art and Gallery Center offers a nice private garden just outside of the bridal prep area for photos. This makes it very convenient for all involved. I was fortunate enough to be chosen to do both sister's weddings. In the photo below, the other bride is just to the left of the bride. San Francisco has so many great places for weddings, this location is just one of many.
