Inspiring Stories in Half Moon Bay

After seeing how beautiful and romantic The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay was, a Club Level guest shared that she and her partner would like to get married in Half Moon Bay sometime during their stay. Excited for the couple, the Front Desk began addressing their needs, beginning with the officiant. Fortunately, the resort’s very own Director of Housekeeping was a registered officiant in the State of California at the time. With the help of the Concierge, the bride was able to arrange for a bridal bouquet and personal shopper to assist with purchasing a wedding dress. A relaxing Spa appointment at the resort was also arranged for the bride-to-be. Grateful for the collaboration between the Ladies & Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, the guests enjoyed an intimate, meaningful ceremony on the beach. The Ladies & Gentlemen were thrilled to have been a part of this very special memory.
