If you’re looking for a truly unique wedding venue with history and views, the Lyford House may be just the perfect place. Built in 1878 and barged in 1957 to its current location on the Richardson Bay Audubon Center bird sanctuary, it’s set on a bluff overlooking Richardson Bay. A Victorian Registered Historical Landmark, it offers stunning views of San Francisco, Sausalito and Mount Tamalpais.
Gretchen Grani, Office Manager for Lyford House, tell us the space hosts a maximum of 150 people on their terrace and meadow surrounding the actual house. “It’s ideal for couples looking for an outdoor wedding location with a stunning view, or couples planning a green wedding,” she says. And for those nature lovers, Lyford House is on an Audubon Sanctuary, so you shouldn't be surprised to see hawks, ducks, sandpipers and the occasional heron. How cool is that?
When working with the Lyford House event planning staff, you can expect prompt, accurate, and courteous replies. Having just gotten married herself, Gretchen is very in tune and empathetic with what couples are going through. She allows couples to bring in their own vendors, except for caterers, and she is happy to help recommend vendors, should you need that.
