I loved shooting at Oceano Hotel in Half Moon bay! It’s a one stop venue with rooms for all your guests and plenty of ballrooms for your ceremony, cocktail and reception area. They also have a beautiful lawn area if you would like an outside ceremony or cocktail time. A short walk accroos the street is the Marina docks and home of the Maverick waves. Gina and Mike grew up in Half Moon Bay and went to Highschool together but they didn’t really know each other until 10 years ago they met at a mutual friends party and have been together since then. They had their son Brody 4 years into their relationship which was the best thing that happend to them and they became a family. Gina would ask Mike “So are we getting married?,… so, when are we getting married?” LOL. Eventually Gina got tired of asking and when she least expected it their son Brody asked her while on vacation in Maui on Valentines day February 2015. He came out in his pajamas with a little box and handed it to her and said “will you marry daddy?” Gina was in total shock and Mike got down on one knee and popped the question. Brody was the official best man since he did ask her to marry his daddy.oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0001oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0002oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0003Gorgeous ladies enjoying the morning of the big day!oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0004oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0005oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0006oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0007oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0008oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0009oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0010oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0011oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0012oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0013Their meeting room made for a great groomsmen shot.oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0014oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0015oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0016oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0017oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0018oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0019oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0020oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0021oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0022oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0024oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0025oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0026oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0027oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0028oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0029oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0030oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0033oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0034oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0035oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0036The sunset was magical!oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0037oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0031oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0039oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0040oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0041oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0042oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0043oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0044oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0045oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0046Dinner was excellent!oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0047oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0048It was such a fun party the guests had a blast!oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0049With a pop up Gelato bar as well!oceano_hotel_half_moon_bay_wedding_cabrera_photography__0051

I absolutely adore everything about this bohemian styled family maternity session. I love the organic natural look that this country scene brings to their styled shoot. I have been shooting Selene for for several years already. I initially met her when I shot her boudoir session for her anniversary gift to her husband. Then I had the privilage of documenting her first maternity as well as her baby’s newborn and birthday shoot as well and can’t wait to shoot her little princess newborn shoot as well.
