mk + jj: classic black + white affair at the oceano resort in half moon bay, california

Weddings & Engagement
August 17, 2017

california girl moves to chicago. meets boy. falls in love.

since most of the family still resides in california, this happy go lucky pair opted for a destination wedding along the coast. it was so fun to actually meet mk in the morning since we both agreed it was similar to engaging in a long distance relationship for the past year!

mary kate + jj are quite the pair. it was difficult to find a moment where they weren’t smiling around each other. they had their dearest friends + family gather at the oceano resort and spa in half moon bay. ceremony took place at our lady of the pillar + reception followed in the garden terrace at oceano. the clouds rolled in, the air had a certain briskness about it, love was in good supply. kettle one shots adorned each guests place marker, strolls by the pier happened along with some dancing to classics + a five tiered cake. it was a classy back tie affair through + through.
