Mike and Valerie's Wedding

52502

We enjoyed our wedding in Half Moon Bay. It turned out perfect. Our first goal was to have the Wedding and Reception at Costanoa, which is our favorite place to visit on the coastside, however they proved to be a little pricey. I am so glad we then found Bud Andre. He is a justice of the peace/priest that is so full of resources, that he was indispensible as our greatest resource for our wedding in HMB. If anyone is to marry in HMB, he is the best contact to have!! Just this past weekend, (5/3/08), we returned to HMB for our first anniversary and again, enjoyed a wonderful stay on the coastside.

*This is the best contact anyone can have in HMB. Bud has lived there many years and knows everyone. He can perform ANY type of ceremony you wish and his easy going personality and organizational style compliments the consumate wedding planner and last minute wedding couples. Bud is a pleasure to get know. A real friend in the industry and Coastside area.

Linday Montalvo has developed a wonderful garden for outdoor weddings. The lush foliage, storybook cottage and neatly trimmed and clean surroundings are just perfect for a garden wedding. Her husband, Richard Patterson is available for classical guitar music. He is a world reknown composer and accomplished guitarist, who gave our wedding a wonderful atmosphere and sophisticated air.

Fish and chips, shuffleboard, just about every beer on tap, that you could imagine. Festive atmosphere... and somewhere you can bring the kids. We enjoyed great breakfast, lunch and dinner... and the rooms are very quaint. Some of our guests stayed here.
