Angelica and Brian’s Half Moon Bay wedding had a stunning coastal casual chic wedding with musical influences. The reception was (one of my favorites!) a Sunday brunch wedding featuring chicken and waffles, crab cakes, and spinach florentine benedicts. Don’t miss the embroidery hoops centerpieces, tambourine bouquets, bud vases, flower stands, and even coffee beans as decor. Oh, and the GORGEOUS ceremony backdrop! Instead of champagne toasting flutes, they got personalized beer steins and drank Not For Sale Calf-eine Coffee Milk Stout, a nonprofit that works against human trafficking worldwide. Let’s see the whole delicious and gorgeous event…
This pair’s love of movies, superheroes, video games, and pop culture influenced all their decisions in this superhero scout camp wedding. Don’t even think about missing their sweet walk down the aisle, the bride’s gorgeously retro blue dress that she made the NIGHT BEFORE the wedding, the wild groomsmen photos, and alllll of the superhero touches.
Feast your eyes on the rustic redwoods wedding of your California dreams. Though this GORGEOUS pair had a big challenge with some fiddlers (you have to read about it!), they conquered the day with style, flair, and teamwork. Don’t miss the fashion, the tearful impromptu speech at the reception, and the giant Serenity Prayer circle. It’ll move you.

But you can’t keep offbeat down, and Joey and Kiara sneaked some geek into their classy elopement with a Star Wars beach wedding!
