The Palace of Fine Arts, designed by Bernard Maybeck for the 1923 World's Fair is set in one of

San Francisco's most cherished public parks.  It is the most requested site for wedding services by

the Parks and Recreation department.

New construction reflects the spirit of sustainability, Maybeck's legacy and challenge.
