Half Moon Bay- a special place

Time flies these days and one year ago last weekend I assisted a fantastic couple with their 300 person wedding in Half Moon Bay!   It has special meaning to me for a few reasons :

1. The couple were so happy and lovely to work with!
2. Pink peonies are my all time favorite flower (see the bride's bouquet below)!  I wish I could have a fresh arrangement everyday on my desk to admire.........
3.  The Ritz Half Moon Bay was my first home in California (yes I lived at the Ritz for 2 months upon arrival in Cali as they transferred me out to be their wedding planner)!   So many great memories for me there as there was excitement , anticipation and lots of hard work.

Happy First Anniversary Lauren and Brendan O'Brien!

Don't you love what the flower girl carried? So sweet.

A traditional bagpiper was hired to announce the bride and groom in the Grand Ballroom

Lush, Romantic, Beautiful Peonies! 

The magical coastside in Half Moon Bay!  So picturesque!
