San Francisco Rooftop Proposal
We often receive inquiries about whether we know of a suitable rooftop location for a proposal in San Francisco. Unfortunately, we haven't had permanent access to a rooftop large enough to accommodate such events. While some of our previous clients may have properties with fantastic San Francisco views, they typically prefer not to be inconvenienced by requests to "borrow" their space. Additionally, commercial venues often impose safety restrictions, which further limits our options. Even when access is granted, many rooftops may not have the aesthetic appeal necessary for a picturesque proposal setting.
Finding the ideal rooftop for a proposal can be more challenging than it appears, but with determination and resourcefulness, nothing is impossible. We've even managed to negotiate a special rate for our clients at this particular venue.
1 - Premium Photography Package: $995 on weekdays, $1,095 on weekends. See our main proposal page with a portfolio and packages.
2 - Rooftop Rental: Prices range from as low as $500 to as high as $1,500, depending on the time required by the team to set up the space. The longer the setup time, the more expensive the rental becomes. This venue is a luxurious $5 million property situated in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods.
3 - Decor: Decorating a rooftop of this size can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on the amount of flowers and props needed for delivery, assembly, and dismantling after the proposal. Some setups may take up to half a day to complete.
4 - "Marry Me" Sign: This custom sign costs a minimum of $1,000 (more realistically around $1,200) to deliver (requiring a full-size van), assemble, connect to a generator, and dismantle. It's a considerable undertaking, but it adds a truly unique and memorable touch to the proposal.
Based on the costs mentioned in the previous text, let's calculate a realistic total cost for a rooftop proposal in San Francisco:
1 - Premium Photography Package: $995 on weekdays, $1,095 on weekends.
2 - Rooftop Rental: Prices range from $500 to $1,500.
3 - Decor: Decorating a rooftop can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000.
4 - "Marry Me" Sign: This custom sign costs a minimum of $1,000 to $1,200.
For a realistic total cost, let's assume a mid-range cost for each item:
1 - Photography Package: $1,045 (average of weekday and weekend prices)
2 - Rooftop Rental: $1,000 (mid-range)
3 - Decor: $2,000 (mid-range)
4 - "Marry Me" Sign: $1,100 (mid-range)
Total cost: $1,045 (photography) + $1,000 (rental) + $2,000 (decor) + $1,100 (sign) = $5,145
A realistic total cost for a rooftop proposal in San Francisco would be around $5,145, considering mid-range costs for each item. Keep in mind that the final cost may vary depending on your specific choices and requirements.
This estimate based on working with reputable vendors. Vendors who can adapt to weather conditions, schedule issues, communicate well and work as a team. There are cheaper options for sure but from experience, you may have a lot of headache navigating this with budget vendors. Examples I personally seen more then once. Stuck inntraffic coing from East bay, light not working, petals are old, no weights for decor. Things fly away, and so much more.
