When your guests arrive at the Hamlin Mansion, they will be awestruck by every elegantly appointed detail of this gorgeous 24-room mansion. This is how entertaining in San Francisco is done. Presidio Heights has always been the place where the San Francisco elite have hobnobbed with movie stars and politicians. The entrance is spectacular. Two playful granite lions (Leo and Leona) grant your guests entrance to the mansion as they ascend up the granite steps into the marble foyer. What a spectacular way to greet your guests.
There are lots of ways to WOW your guests during your wedding celebration, but tantalizing their taste buds with a sublime wedding menu will get you rave reviews. When you are choosing your wedding venue it seems odd to think about your menu, but the two go hand in hand. Serving a casual luncheon at the Julia Morgan would be just as out of place as serving high tea at the Stinson Beach Community Center. Choosing a menu that pairs perfectly with your venue can be a fun and tasty challenge.
The Hamlin Mansion is a great place to explore a variety of culinary possibilities. This is the perfect place to allow food to be a piece of history and art. Elaine Bell Catering has been creating dream menus for San Francisco brides for over 10 years. I love how they carefully incorporate a bit of art, geometry, and frivolity into each item. I also adore how they have taken traditional flavors and displayed them with such zeal!
