My niece is getting married in SF & there will be 9 of us total. She wants: Beach - 10 min. or so ceremony - I will officiate - then a nice lunch or dinner. I'm thinking China Beach or Baker Beach & meal at Cliff House. Questions: can't we just make a reservation for 9 for lunch or dinner? We don't need a private room or dancing. Do we need a permit to marry them on China Beach or Baker Beach if it's just 9 of us for 10 or 15 minutes? I appreciate any & all info. I live in Honolulu, bride & groom live in San Jose, the rest are coming in from the East Coast. Mahalo (thank you)!
