bride and groom kissing during their Ritz-Carlton Hlaf Moon Bay Wedding

Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay|Priscilla & Michael

Priscilla first met Michael through his friend at Domaine Serene in downtown Lake Oswego, Oregon. After remaining friends for over a year, they started dating and the rest is history. They found in each other a best friend, someone they could laugh with and share all of their same interests, values & priorities.

With vaulted ceilings and chandeliers, The Ritz-Carlton is the ideal wedding destination for this couple’s intimate and elegant wedding in  Half Moon Bay.

It boasts magnificent ocean views, a secluded seaside location, and inviting décor. The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay is perched along a picturesque shoreline with beautiful sunsets that attract couples from all around the Bay Area and beyond. Those looking for a wedding destination that mixes nature and elegance will find their venues well suited. This is the ideal location to hold your special day, whether you want a private exchange of vows overlooking the Pacific or a spectacular party with your closest friends and family. 

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day:

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!

"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team. Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
