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!



Long Branch Saloon, Half Moon Bay, CA

This amazing venue just south of Half Moon Bay offers a quirky and fun twist on a country themed wedding.  Its like stepping into an old western movie set.  Ada and Corbin wanted to offer a fun and unique place that all of their guests and friends can celebrate their day but also play at their leisure.  It is set with an old Saloon, poker tables, horseshoes, and even a real pig!

This wedding had so much energy and so much life… the celebration of this awesome love was infectious!

Jacuzzi Vineyard, Sonoma Wine Country Wedding.

Talk about being transported back to what looked like a beautiful villa in Italy. This castle like venue, Jacuzzi Vineyard, that sits upon the never ending vines was a breathtaking location for a beautiful October wedding. The flowers designed by Deidre of Tutti Fiori were a perfect blend of the fall colors of the season. The decor was simple yet classy, again using the flowers designed by Tutti Fiori as centerpieces, Andrea and Bobby also creatively used mini oil and balsamic bottles for their favors…. loved it! And then there was the band! Best band I ever heard, Notorious… they rocked anything from the classic rock to the more modern dance songs. So fun to watch everyone have the best time ever!

And of course the groom rocked his awesome blue suit as well as the bride in her Maggie Sotero dress! Breathtaking!

Miramar Farms — Half Moon Bay’s Magical Event Space

One of my favorite places to photograph when its not the beauty of emotion is this majestic and serene environment located in a gentle meadow like space of Miramar which is located in the sunbelt of the Half Moon Bay Coastside. The short tree lined drive is the prelude to this beautiful garden like atmosphere in which most of everything you eat is grown or raised right from the grounds. From eggs from their grass fed chickens to the bee’s homes in which they are able to harvest their own honey from, everything is natural and real and is the perfect spot to leave your troubles behind and reconnect with new visions and ideas and really reconnect either in a solitude fashion like I do, or with your fellow team mates. Miramar Farms is the perfect venue for anyone seeking an off-site meeting space that is unique and different and raw but real and genuine all at the same time.
