Rainy day wedding at the Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay, CA

Its like rain on your wedding day…. This is the song that keeps playing in my head as I was capturing this mother nature induced unique wedding day.  A May wedding.  Should be sunny skies… or at least spring like temps… but not this day… this day decided it needed to dump all day long.

There are so many things I loved about this day though.  The way the bride and groom weren’t even phased by this.  The way the Oceano Hotel has so many options to get artistic and fun captures inside its glorious space.

Throw in a fun band and a twist to cutting the cake (they had a cheese cake…. A cake made up of different cheese rounds, crackers and a honey comb) some chair dancing and what more could you ask for!

Anthony and Luigi, Chapel of our Lady, Presidio and the Oceano Gatehouse, Half Moon Bay

Anthony and Luigi’s wedding was a day of bliss!  Never have I met two more loving and upbeat people as these two.  And their families, oh my goodness… I wanted desperately to be adopted into this wonderful family unit from both sides!  The wedding was located at Chapel of our Lady in the majestic and historic presidio in San Francisco….  After capturing a few landmark moments within the city we quickly headed down the coast to the scenic and serene Oceano Hotel where they celebrated (can we say surprise flash mob performance by Anthony.. epic) in the gatehouse facility.  I felt so lucky not only to capture this day but to walk away knowing to amazing people that really made me smile from the day I met them!
