Frequently Asked Wedding Questions

Do you provide a tasting of the food we select? When may I come and what is included?

We are pleased to offer a sample menu tasting for weddings with a Food & Beverage minimum of $15,000. Tastings are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis Tuesday through Friday at 11:00 am. The tasting will include your choice of canapés, first course, entrée, and either wedding cake or mini desserts. If a buffet menu is preferred, we will offer a modified sampling of the menu for tasting. Tastings are limited to four (4) guests. Any additional guests will be charged at $250 per person (exclusive of service charge and tax).

Who provides the wedding cake and what are the cake-cutting fees?

Our pastry chef can prepare cakes here at Cavallo Point, based on your flavor and design preferences. You are able to taste various cake flavors at your menu tasting in order to ensure that the cake is to your liking.

We understand that the wedding cake is very special and unique to our couples, so we do allow you to bring in cakes from outside vendors if you prefer. Any cake-cutting fees are waived with the purchase of a food package.

Do I have to use vendors from the Preferred Vendor List, and when can I receive the Preferred Vendor List?

Selecting vendors from our Preferred Vendor List is not required, although it is highly recommended to ensure the continuation of the Cavallo Point wedding experience. Your Wedding Specialist would be delighted to review the Preferred Vendor List with you during your initial consultation visit.

Cavallo Point is conveniently located in the San Francisco Bay Area, which has access to a wealth of stylists, makeup artists, photographers, florists, designers, and officiants. Vendors must maintain a business license and a one-million-dollar liability insurance policy. All vendors must be certified and licensed, as well as sign and adhere to the Cavallo Point Vendor Policies & Code of Conduct. Cavallo Point reserves the right to remove and/or not admit vendors that do not adhere to said policies. Please note: No alcohol is permitted to be consumed by vendors while on Cavallo Point property.

How much set-up time do our vendors have?

Set-up may begin at 10:00 am on your event day and in your designated venue. Additional set-up time or an extension of your reception time is subject to availability and additional facility fees and/or banquet staff overtime service fees.

Can we do a rehearsal for the wedding ceremony?

Your Wedding Specialist is happy to arrange a ceremony rehearsal for you and your wedding party. Rehearsal times are confirmed up to four (4) weeks prior to your wedding date and set at a time that does not interfere with other booked events. Please contact your Wedding Specialist in advance to arrange. Ceremony rehearsals are normally one hour in length and there is no additional fee.

Please note that we reserve the right to refuse service to highly intoxicated guests and may request proof of legal drinking age from guests.

Can I bring in candles?

Yes, candles are allowed in our event space; however, due to fire regulations, all candles must be in a holder that extends at least one inch above the flame. Taper candles are not allowed.
