Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay Wedding | Ryan & Verike

by erin

We have so many wonderful couples and weddings that it is always a challenge to pick which photos to share.   Verike and Ryan had an amazing wedding with personalized details at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay that we thought we’d share a few more pictures from their special day.    Verike is a natural in front of the camera and, as we like to suggest to all clients, was great at forgetting we were there to capture candid moments between her and Ryan.  This couple shared some of their most personal moments of their wedding out on the beach and we were left breathless when we saw the images.

Some clients prefer to have minimal or maximum getting ready photos, pre-ceremony, and we recommend that you time photography coverage to your personality and if it is important or not for you to have extensive getting ready pictures.  For some brides, they want ample coverage of all the details with hair, makeup, wardrobe and getting ready pictures but it is all personal preference and choice.  It does tell a story and builds up to the anticipation of the ceremony itself.  Verike and Ryan were very busy the morning of their wedding getting ready and we captured a time leading up to those last few moments that are so special before they walked down the aisle towards each other.

We love when a couple is creative and personalizes their event or photo session to match their personality, taste, or style.  Verike told me that their cake was designed with the idea that it would represent various parts of their love story and life together.  They are planning a fantastic honeymoon to Italy and love to play scrabble so they built this into the cake design as well as many other details.  We were in awe at the talents of Susan, from Elegant Cheesecakes, who replicated Verike’s wedding shoes to a tee on the cake. Can you believe that is sugar, flower, and butter?  So amazing you want to wear them!  We also love the classic and elegant floral centerpiece design by Nancy Liu Chin Designs who captured the essence of Verike and Ryan in this design.  We are so happy for Ryan and Verike and say Ciao to them on their Italian honeymoon!
