A Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay wedding // Megan and Dan

Megan and Dan’s Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay wedding was held on a beautiful sunny Central Californian day. Megan grew up around Half Moon Bay so it meant a lot for them to have the wedding near the beaches and cliffs where she played as a child, and close to home. Megan and Dan were set up by Dan’s sister and brother-in-law, both professors at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Megan was studying for her MFA in Creative Writing and when this boy came into her life…
Their classic black-tie Jewish wedding on the edge of the pacific was all class and the day was filled with family love. I have to say, there were a few times throughout the day, between speeches at the Ketubah signing and that evening at the reception, that I teared up. Their contingency of friends was also strong and the relationships between everyone made photographing the day feel extremely intimate. It’s a well-known fact that I am music-obsessed so, when we heard their good friend Sia would be performing the acapella, Never Gonna Leave Me  during the reception…our day went from great to awesome!
