Sausalito Presbyterian Church, located just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco and nestled in the hills of picturesque Sausalito, has a long history of creating classic, meaningful, and unique wedding experiences. Couples of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to start their lives together in our elegant historic sanctuary. Third-generation families have shared wedding vows in our church, and couples often return to show their children where they took their vows.
The church’s shingle exterior is typical of the Arts and Crafts style of famous architect, Ernest Coxhead. The building’s Gothic-arched porch and series of peaked rooflines draw the eye skywards. Some of the church’s most breathtaking features are the dramatic pyramid-shaped vaulted ceiling, leaded glass windows, and clerestory windows above. The interior is paneled in California redwood and the original floors gleam in the sunlight. The chancel curtain is antique gold, and the pews are covered in designer fabric by Ray Eames.
Our wedding staff includes a professional Wedding Director who is with you every step of the way, a compassionate Minister to guide you in planning a meaningful personal ceremony that reflects the unique story that brought you to our church, and a skilled Music Director who plays a wide variety of music on organ or piano.

Music Director/Organist, Ralph Hooper
Ralph Hooper, composer and conductor as well as our church’s organist and choir director, has provided music for over a thousand weddings, from small private ceremonies to major, high-profile services.
For your wedding, Ralph can offer a wide variety of classical organ works as well as theatrical and film music. Major processional music includes Jeremiah Clarke’s highly popular The Prince of Denmark’s March, Johann Pachelbel’s elegant Canon in D, as well as Richard Wagner’s traditional Bridal March.

And these pieces are just the beginning. For those who want to include theatrical or film music, the sky is the limit. Composers like Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Andrew Lloyd Webber have graced a number of recent weddings.
