    Hi girls...I was wondering if any of you have seen or heard or been to Casa Madrona in Sausalito, CA.?
    Well this weekend while hanging out with my mom, we decided (my mom and I) to forget the big ceremony and reception and just get 15 people on my side and about 15 people on Erik's side and just fly to San Fran on a weekend in Aug. and get married in San Fran.
    Not have a reception really, just go out to dinner and dancing at a club and for ceremony I was thinking of doing it somewhere with the view of the Goldgate bridge in the background.
    My mom brought up Casa Madrona, (she and my dad were going to get married there but went to the court in San Fran instead) to have ceremony and small reception there.
    It looks pretty from pics.
    So what do you think?

    p.s. Erik loves this idea....just need to plan it correctly....he doesn't want a wedding with lots of people...just immediate family and friends....so 15 each.

    i love it there!! even though i live in sf, i have spent a night or 2 there. it is in an awesome location right near the ferry building so you can take the ferry to sf and walk around...so fun.

    great place!

    ps. i used to live in sausalito (and still own a property there) and my sister lives about 100 ft from casa madrona so i am super familiar with it

      Great Tammy, would you like to come to my wedding? LOL.
      Erik and I are so sick of fighting about where to have wedding and guest list that I decided to agree with him and just have important people in my life and his there only (so roughly 25 people) and look into go to San Fran...which was my mom's idea which by the way I loved and head up to get married there. I was born in San Fran and parents used to live in Sausalito. That's why my mom thought of it.
      I called the place up and asked for wedding info for this year but the lady hasn't returned my calls.
      Which frustrates me.....hopefully she can return my call tomorrow or I'm just going to have to make a trip to san fran with my mom and check the place out this month :)
      Maybe we can meet up for lunch if you have time and are up to it. :)

        Drea that sounds like a great idea! there are so many beautiful places in the Bay Area.

            Hi Drea,
            I also live in Sausalito, and I was speaking to the catering manager at the Casa Madrona just last week about their pricing and availability. Small world!
            I will try to post the pricing info for you- let me know if it works I've never posted attachments before!

            Also, just so you know:
            -there is not a view of the golden gate bridge from the Casa Madrona it is a spectacular bay/sf city view, but no golden gate bridge.
            -they do have a lovely outdoor terrace for ceremonies, but the average temp in the summertime is usually quite cold and windy/foggy. Only sporadically does it ever get above ~60-65 degrees.
            Check out this site for weather info:

            Let me know if you have any questions- the Casa Madrona is a perfect place to get married for a smaller group.
