Besides our amazingly cozy cold weather vibe, and the excuse to snuggle up to the one you love, another great reason to host a winter wedding at the Lodge is CRAB SEASON. San Francisco is known for its crab, and what could be more fun than hosting your guests for a good ol’ fashioned crab feed? I love the use of red and white checkered linens on queens tables with picnic benches shown here in our Verbena Room. Or, add visual interest with newspaper or craftpaper table runners perfect for an interactive crab display. Finish the table with metal buckets for shells and lots of candlelight and get to crackin’!
