Wedding Portrait of two grooms during a Half Moon Bay Backyard Wedding

Half Moon Bay Backyard Wedding


Who doesn’t love a fun laid back Half Moon Bay backyard wedding? The intimate setting and floral dress code were just a few of the many things that made this wedding so special.

This Half Moon Bay backyard wedding was one of those weddings you just want to photograph over and over again (I’m hoping for several vow renewals!). I had the privilege of photographing Robert and Ernesto’s picturesque backyard wedding that they planned themselves. The setting had a deeply personal touch, as it was the home where Robert grew up in Half Moon Bay. The intimacy of the venue was enhanced by the guests’ adherence to a floral dress code, which was a delightful array of colorful, botanical-inspired attire that perfectly complemented the natural garden setting.

What truly set this Half Moon Bay backyard wedding apart was the atmosphere of acceptance and celebration. It was a day where love was not only celebrated in its romantic form, but also in the love between friends and family. I don’t even know where to begin with the dancing. I had to request their playlist, because it was so good. The energy on the dance floor was infectious, pulling every single guest onto the dance floor. I still hear Dancing Queen playing when I look back through these dance photos!

I love that this couple made their wedding truly their own. I even still have their guest gift, which was a candle with a very creative portrait of the two of them on it. This Half Moon Bay backyard wedding will always be one of my favorites! I have stayed in touch with these two, and have had the privilege of Ernesto cutting and styling my hair. The haircut in the greenhouse was a favorite for sure! If you are looking for a new hair stylist, Ernesto owns Vesper, in San Francisco.
