A wedding at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay whether it is a sunny day or a hazy day it is very romantic and beautiful.
We started the day off with the getting ready shots of the bride and the groom. We went to their suite, photographed the commotion of the day, final touches for the hair and make up, shaving for the groom, wedding gown, tux, flowers, and other details.  The bride and groom decided they could see each other before the ceremony, but the bride didn’t want to groom to see her in her wedding dress. When everyone was ready we started portraits of the groom with his family and wedding party. Then we photographed the bride her family and wedding party. They were all a lot of fun!
They had a beautiful Catholic Wedding Ceremony at Our Lady of the Pillar in Half Moon Bay. They exchanged their vows and rings in front of their friends and family. Following the ceremony there was time for some family photos in the church.
When we arrived at the hotel the wedding coordinator from the Ritz Carlton Hotel had a golf cart waiting for us to go to the beach for some fun and romantic photos of just the bride and groom. The guests were enjoying the cocktail hour so we had some time. We took a little more time to photograph some solo shots of each of them. Of course we did some romantic photos of the two of them on the bridge, the beach, and a few with the hotel in the background. The grounds of the hotel are so beautiful for romantic wedding photos. These photos are always favorites of couples we photograph at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay.
The banquet room was beautiful!  They had the Miramar I-III banquet rooms that over look the golf course.  After the touching toasts of the best man and maid of honor, dinner was served. The dancing started after dinner followed by the cutting of the cake and garter and bouquet toss. A perfect end to a perfect day!
