Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is home to a couple of the the city's museums, the De Young and California Academy of Sciences. Next door is the Japanese Tea Garden, an outdoor botanical garden steeped in a serene and peaceful beauty. After you've visited this 1000 plus acre landmark you'll find yourself asking, 'where else can you find year round greenery in so many fields of open space?' Because Golden Gate Park has a unique landscape, there are scores of special places to get married indoors and out. The most romantic of all would be Shakespeare's Garden the spot that pays tribute to all the the plants and flowers mentioned in the Bard's poems and plays. You'll find lady-smocks, hemlock, violets, and other florid representations of Shakespeare's works.
Opting for spots in full bloom as well as architectural interest, we also improvised along the way and had a real day of it . .
