Wedding Ceremony Package – Half Moon Bay – California

Written by Terry Plank on . Posted in Resources - Half Moon Bay Coastside

Weddings By The Sea offers an affordable wedding package in Half Moon Bay that provides a stress free option for a wedding ceremony. The general package is specific and fully coordinated by our staff wedding coordinator.

  • The arrangements include ceremony location, officiant, photographer, and flowers for the Bride and Groom starting at $1,620.00
  • A classical guitarist and additional flowers may be added for an additional fee.
  • Lodging can be arranged for the wedding couple in one of Half Moon Bay area Bed & Breakfast Inns within a cost range of $310.00 – $770.00 for a 2 night’s stay, plus applicable lodging taxes.
  • Choose one of the beach locations listed at here. View still images and video clips there to choose a location.

A wedding ceremony at a beach location is considered more informal, with the wedding couple and guests standing for the ceremony on the beach or on a bluff-top overlooking the ocean.

The photographer will provide a minimum of 72 digital color photographs taken during the key points of the ceremony and of the wedding couple and guests following the ceremony. The images are provided on a CD within 2 weeks of the ceremony date and can be printed to create your own customized wedding album.

The flowers include a wedding bouquet for the Bride and a boutonniere for the Groom. Couples may choose specific flowers and a color scheme for the arrangements. Or the decision can be left to the coordinator and floral designer based on the couples desired color scheme and the flowers in season.

If you love the ocean and the sound of rolling waves and are looking for someone to handle all your wedding ceremony arrangements, this is a good option for you.

Best Regards,



Coastside Live Calendar of Events – Half Moon Bay – California

Written by Terry Plank on . Posted in Resources - Half Moon Bay Coastside

Whether considering a wedding ceremony on the Coastside of San Mateo, a getaway to the coast, or just finding out as a resident what’s happening on the Coastside, you can go to the Coastside Live web site for a complete and helpful Calendar for Coastside Events.

You don’t have to check with a number of web sites to find all the Coastside activities & events, music & entertainment, school, sports, community and government calendars. Just go to and search either for Events and Activities, Music and Entertainment, or all in one calendar.

If you have regular events you can even post your events by just applying once to be a contributor and then you can post whenever you want. So whether you want to know happening during your planned trip to Half Moon Bay or just wanting to keep up with what’s happening in your community, it’s one of the best ways I know to find out everything that’s happening throughout the Coastside

Coastside Live is helpful in another way, it’s a clean, easy to use site that has a comprehensive listing of resources on the Coastside with phone numbers and addresses:

· Where to eat, sleep, and play.

· Listings of Annual Events and things to do.

· Entertainment venues; all the local services like auto repair; and real estate offices and realtors.

There’s no hype, distracting graphics, difficult navigation, just good ol’ text content where you can find things easily and see exactly what’s there. There’s also a search box for just just

I use it every day to get a phone number for a local business or send my clients and friends when they are looking for anything on the Coastside of San Mateo. I also rely on it for traffic to my business, after the search engines, it’s the 4 highest traffic generator to my site.

Best Regards, Terry
