So I called about information about a particular park in SF where I was thinking of having the ceremony. However I found out some particularly disturbing news.
1) That weekend is the end of fleet week. I might be having Blue Angels sonic booming my ceremony and sailors crashing my reception (though I think my maid of honor will be happy with having her pick of navy men.)
2) That is the week before the Oracle Convention, and all the rooms are booked starting from the 8th of October for people coming in for set up (and probably every single extra chair in SF will be rented to them too!)
3) Who owns the park is still in limbo, and they don't even know if it will be "finished" by then, since it's still not done.
Maybe October isn't going to work out in SF. Sonoma anyone?
