From Heather Elizabeth PhotographyI am sending you the wedding of Doug and Felice that I photographed on May 31st of this year. The wedding took place at Doug’s parent’s place in Healdsburg, California. The couple still lives out in that area and are huge beer & wine fans. So of course the wedding had the best of the local brews and wines. Felice is so detail oriented that she really had a small detail for everything – down to the sign pointing to the restroom! It was really a feast for the eyes for me to photograph. They even had a private vineyard to shoot in! From The Bride…All the succulents were ordered on Etsy from a vendor in San Diego and (DIY). We bought all the vases and put the burlap on them and put the lavender in the tall vases. The escort cards were paper from the paper source and I embossed them, cut corks and my mom did the calligraphy. Everything that was not rented was a DIY. Even the arbor was made by Doug’s brother. The bars were rented. We did so much of the wedding ourselves.

Rustic Garden Half Moon Bay Elopement

If I had taken only a peek at this pretty from Monica Roy, I’d never have guessed it an intimate elopement. The details are that of a full on wedding, but made for only two, and it’s oh-so-lovely. The touch of bohemian in the Bride’s intricate BHLDN dress and floral crown, pop of orange in the lush garden setting and the prettiest coastal views have me wanting to spend my Saturday afternoon in this gorgeous gallery.

From Monica RoyLittle did Rosalinda and Isaac know how fateful their chance encounter on the flight to Colorado would be. The odds seemed stacked against them, as at the time, Rosalinda was living in Mexico (where she grew up) and Isaac, in the States. However, the fact that their conversation spanned the next five hours was an inkling of things to come. Sure enough, one thing led to another and Isaac moved to join Rosalinda in Mexico City, where the couple still reside. Introverts and jet setters by nature, they decided to have a destination elopement when the time was right. They looked up a list of the most beautiful destinations in the world for elopements and stumbled across San Francisco City Hall. Unfortunately, all the appointment slots that they coincided with their elopement dates were booked, so they deferred to a recommendation from a planner. As luck would have it (again), the serene, magical, lush setting that they ended up exchanging their vows in was an even better fit for the intimate ceremony they had envisioned. I was so touched after they asked me to be their witness during the license signing as well as invited me to have a slice of their delicious cake in a nearby coffeehouse after our photo session. Chatting with the couple revealed them to be as brainy as they are stylish. After spending 3 more days in San Francisco, the adventurous duo continued their travels on a honeymoon in Costa Rica followed by Thanksgiving with family in Florida.

From the photographer… April and Collin got married 10 years ago when they were very young and they had a very small wedding with immediate families only. Now a decade and two beautiful girls later, they decided to have the wedding of their dreams.

From the beautiful bride… Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay had a lot of elements we were looking for, beautiful beach/ocean scenery and the timeless elegance of the hotel. Our colors reflect our love for the beach and ocean: Light Blue, Coral, Silver, Grey, Ivory

It was an absolutely beautiful day, we couldn’t ask for better weather, and everything just came together. The moments that stand out where when I was walking down the aisle, when Collin and I were exchanging vows, and when we were dancing the first dance.
