Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay Go Back

It was at the picturesque Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, overlooking the Pacific Ocean where the ceremony took place with an aisle filled with flowers blooming upwards towards the sky. The couple were married by the groom’s father under a floral cabana that stood some ten feet tall. What had originally been planned for 170 guests, due to Covid-19, the couple exchanged their personal wedding vows in front of just 50 of their closest loved ones. Cocktail hour took place on the lawn overlooking the beautiful California coast. A quartet played as guests connected, enjoyed an assortment of food stations and passed appetizers and took in the natural landscape as the sun set. A collection of demi john vase were used to indicate table assignments before guests made their way into the ballroom for dinner. The subtle sea glass theme was also used on the dining tables as seat assignments that doubled as a meal indicator based on the color of the sea glass. The dinner reception took place in the ballroom with a mix of round tables with tall “cloud like” centerpieces and kings tables that sat under built and decorated custom pergolas. Hundreds of glass bulbs with tea lights were strung at varying heights from the pergolas which created the most beautiful glowy atmosphere while a large floral chandelier with Edison bulbs hung over the dance floor. Guests sang karaoke and danced to their hearts content in true celebration of this beautiful union.
