Patrice and James had their wedding ceremony at The Hastings House in Half Moon Bay which is one of the most beautiful garden venues for a wedding. A wedding at the Hastings House allows for beautiful gardens in your photos, but you are also right across from the beach. Their ceremony was short, sweet and filled with emotion. After the ceremony, everyone headed over to a fun reception held at the Oceano Hotel near Pillar Point Harbor. This is one of the sweetest couples and it was evident they are much adored by their friends and family.

Here are Patrice’s wedding dress and jewelry.

The reception site at the Oceano was so nicely done. Perfectly positioned tents on a huge lawn across from Pillar Point Harbor

When Julie and Rob contacted me about photographing their wedding, I was beyond delighted. Julie is the sister of one of my dearest friends and it was an honor getting to document such a joyful event in their lives.Thank you so much Julie and Rob for having me- I enjoyed every minute of it!

The September vineyard wedding of Julie and Rob in Morgan Hill was so much fun and gorgeous! Julie’s parent’s backyard was transformed into a chic wedding venue that was thoroughly enjoyed by all of their guests. This was a destination wedding for Julie and Rob as they reside on the east coast. They held their ceremony and west coast reception in Morgan Hill and had a second reception on the east coast the following weekend.

Now this group knows how to party, and from what I hear, what I witnessed in Morgan Hill was nothing compared to the festivities at the east coast wedding reception! Being huge Boston fans, they had a 7th inning stretch at 7pm with Sweet Caroline on the west coast. Apparently, on the east coast, Wally himself (the mascot of the Red Sox) made an appearance for the 7th inning stretch- love it!

Congratulations Julie and Rob- and welcome home from your honeymoon in St. Lucia! The link for the slideshow is at the end of the post.

The entryway of the house is stunning and made a perfect backdrop for Julie’s beautiful dress.

Aren’t they the cutest?

It really was a perfectly lovely reception. They kept guests mingling by having food stations and no assigned seats. Guests were free to move around and eat as they wished.

Nearly everyone danced- so fun!

One of my very favorite places in the South Bay is having their Harvest Wone Festival tomorrow. Swing by if you can- it is great for the entire family. The Mountain Winery not only hosts great concerts during the summer, but also produces yummy wine and is a breathtaking spot for a wedding. A wedding at the Mountain Winery is sophisticated and private with views to die for. If you are still searching for a wedding venue, you should definately check it out. They recently did some extensive renovations and I love the outcome. There are terraces all over the place, amazing views, and a sophisticated feel.

Happy Friday!!!
