Oceano Hotel Half Moon Bay Wedding


Elizabeth & David’s wedding at the Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay was the perfect blend of natural beauty and modern elegance. Situated just a stone’s throw from the sea side, the Oceano was the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous sunset ceremony with the waves crashing beyond the hotels garden. (Fun fact- David actually grew up nearby and worked at the restaurant across the street from their venue!) Add in some sharp black tux & bow ties, gorgeous emerald green dresses, a super sweet Dog-Of-Honor with a matching bow tie collar, and some newlywed photos right on the beach, and you have a wedding that will never be forgotten!

About the Couple

Elizabeth and David met in San Francisco when David joined a kickball team that Elizabeth was on. The two were instantly attracted to one another, and Elizabeth recalls during their early season of dating that her initials could actually stay the same if they got married! When the time came to pop the question, David proposed to Elizabeth on the kickball field where they first met. David had a friend tell Elizabeth about a fake party at the nearby Yatch Club and invited the pair to come out- dressed up, of course. David then pretended he needed to use the restroom and brought him and Elizabeth over to the field. With a hidden friend taking photos in the background, David got down on one knee once they reach the field and asked Elizabeth to marry him. And as if this evening couldn’t get any sweeter- David had massages planned right after, followed by dinner with both of their families- including her out of town sister who coordinated with David to fly in just for this!

To Elizabeth & David

Elizabeth and David- thank you again for allowing me the honor to capture your sweet wedding day at the Oceano Hotel! You two looked absolutely stunning in your dress & tux. And both of your blue eyes were just glowing the entire day! It’s clear that you two have so much love not only for each other, but for those you care about. Even with the power going out mid-reception, everyone kept celebrating full blast!  I won’t forget your epic First Dance- such moves! Nor your super sweet reception toast- that was so kind of you to give me a little shout out! I hope you guys are having an amazing time on your honeymoon in Cabo. Congrats again on becoming Husband & Wife!

Thank you!
