Set on the beautiful coast of California, this Half Moon Bay wedding was certainly one for the books! Friends of mine, Teresa & Nick, hired me back in December for their big day at the wonderful Oceano Hotel & Spa on Friday, October Fourth. This couple is very special to me and allowed me the honor of, not only creating both their Save-the-Dates and wedding invitations, but also capturing the moments they will get to treasure for the lifetime they will share together. Here are just a few of the wonderful moments I was able to grab!
Venue/Caterer: Oceano Hotel & Spa, Half Moon Bay
Hair & Make-Up: Mizu Salon, Half Moon Bay
Cake: Mazzetti's Bakery, Pacifica
Florist: Costco (& they were GORGEOUS)
Dress: Starlet Bridal, Santa Rosa
DJ: Patrick Numair of Golden State Productions
As a wedding gift to my friend Nick and his beautiful bride Melanie, I took photos of the groomsmen while they were getting ready. While the light was certainly not my friend with that midday sun beaming down on us, the energy of my men shines in these photos! We all had a wonderful time taking these pictures and afterward I was actually able to be a guest at a wedding...shocking, I know.
Anyway, here are the groomsmen pictures of Mr. Nick Abbott! Sorry ladies, he's off the market now!
