Interested in Half Moon Bay wedding venues? I don’t blame you! This rugged California coastline offers a magical backdrop for capturing those timeless memories. I always get giddy when I get booked for a wedding, engagement sessions or family portrait here. It’s a fabulous respite from the city with small town vibes.
What makes Half Moon Bay the perfect place to get married?
I can’t believe the Bay Area has such a dramatic coastline in Half Moon Bay. Picture the scene of waves crashing against the steep, sandstone cliffs while the deep-orange flush of the sun fades into the Pacific Ocean. It’s just gorgeous and so close. Only 30 minutes from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the location is convenient but still feels like a destination wedding. The vast and diverse landscape is made up of white sands, lush grassy meadows, and towering coastal redwoods.
Two venues I love there are The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay and Oceano Resort & Spa. The Ritz can really accommodate both small weddings, elopements or grand wedding celebrations. For smaller affairs, the grassy private bluff overlooks the Pacific is really romantic. The larger weddings, take up the main courtyard with a the hotel making a perfect statement in the background. Oceano has a lush lawn with views of the harbor. Sunsets are epic and the reception room is lovely. For rustic barn styles take a look at Long Branch Saloon Farm.
I’m fortunate to know great locations in the area for portraits and hope we can make portraits there together. From sandy beaches to jaw dropping cliff views, I love leading my couples to these memorable spots for unforgettable photos.
