The Brazilian Room in Tilden Park is the most beautiful location in the Bay Area for a wedding. Just make sure you know the rules to follow and you will be fine. We arrived early for our reception and the place was all locked up so we could not get into change into our wedding attire. Luckily our catering company (Servers You Right Catering) showed up early. They had the keys and let us in a few minutes before our reservation started. Also when your reservation ends the music must end 1 hour before. Do not expect the Brazilian Room staff to let you go over that time. We should have been more prepared as we did not get to do our last dance. The Brazilian Room gives you a list of preferred vendors so it made choosing our wedding vendors really easy. Almost every Tuesday night they have an open house where the catering companies bring food for you to taste. I recently read in Real Simple Wedding Magazine that this is the best way to try food for catering companies. The article said its best to taste food that is made for a bunch of people and at a party or an event like these open houses. So we tried to go every time and see all of the catering. Only a handful of them had good food in my opinion. After going to a bunch of open house nights we narrowed it down to 3 caterers. In the end we choose Serves You Right Catering. Not only was their table beautiful with these simple candles and flowers the food was some of the best food I have had in a long time! The staff was all dressed very nice and they were all professional and pleasant to talk to. After talking with the chef we pretty much were ready to book right on the spot.Other vendors we went with from the list were Masses pastry and Orchid flowers. We had friends take pictures and officiate. All of the vendors we choose were very close to the Brazilian Room. We were told it was important to do this as these people have a ton of things to bring to the site. If they forget something they do not have far to go to get it. Also they all have worked the room many times and were helpful when it came to ideas. We had 146 people and everyone fit just fine I the room and we had a giant dance floor without having to move tables! I stressed about this for weeks. Two of the other catering companies told me this could not be done. In short if you want to have a beautiful wedding with a gorgeous park like setting check out the Brazilian Room!
