Couples will wed in a festive atmosphere celebrating San Francisco’s LGBTQ+ history and culture and receive special Pride souvenir marriage licenses. Wedding parties will be invited to take photos in a photo booth set up in the North Light Court of City Hall.
The County Clerk’s Office is proud to have played a role in the historic actions our City government has taken toward equality for people of all genders and sexual orientations. In 2004, the County Clerk’s Office issued its first same-sex marriage license to longtime partners Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon upon the direction of then-Mayor Gavin Newsom. In 2013, the Office stayed open throughout the weekend to serve the long lines of couples waiting at City Hall to wed after the Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriages.
Couples must have a valid marriage license prior to June 23, 2023. They will not be available for purchase on the same day as your ceremony. Use the BOOK APPOINTMENT button to make a reservation.
