Claire and Caleb's wedding at Mill Rose Inn, Half Moon Bay

Whenever I drove down to Half Moon Bay, I felt like I have come to a countryside back road that's far, far away from the bustling city.

Mill Rose Inn remains as one of my favorite wedding venues throughout the years. There's nothing quite like this old world charm English style Bed and Breakfast Inn tucked away in a small street just a couple blocks from the historic Main Street. Every time I visit Half Moon Bay, I'd stop by to say hello to the innkeepers Eve and Terry. They are old friends who always have lots of stories to tell, and always maintain the inn and garden so well. Walking around the inn's gardens, plentiful blossom flowers are everywhere regardless the change of seasons.

Strolling down the historic downtown on Main Street, one can always find something intriguing. Whether a timeless treasure in an antique shop; paintings and sculptures created by local artists in a gallery; or simply tasting a variety blend of olive oil infused with herbs. Not to mention a dozen of restaurants offering meals from sushi to pasta.

This is the place to be for a happily ever after marriage, and that's why couples like Claire and Caleb celebrated their wedding at Mill Rose Inn.

Catherine and Ian's Wedding at Vintners Inn

For Catherine the bride, it wasn't easy to plan for a wedding in such a short amount of time - just three months after Ian proposed to her. As faithful Christians, the couple really wanted have a wedding just a day before Easter. Their challenge was finding an outdoors venue that would accommodate 250 guests. When they had found Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa, they were thankful and relieved.

As I was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge on the wedding day, tiny raindrops began to drizzle on my windshield. I was a bit worry for Catherine and Ian, as the outdoor ceremony might not work out as planned. Miraculously, a brief moment before the ceremony, the rain stopped and sunshine shimmered through the heavy cloud! I guess their prayers have been answered. As a photographer, I knew the optimal quality of light is after the rain. The scenery was so clear because the rain has washed away particles in the air. I was so happy for them that they had the picture perfect wedding they dreamed of, and was happy that my photo equipment didn't get wet.
