Half Moon Bay Wedding Locations- Liquid Sky

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

Liquid Sky Estate Wedding LocationI performed my first ceremony at Liquid Sky Estate, a few miles south of Half Moon Bay on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

This location has a stunning view of Half Moon Bay in the distance and the crashing surf below the ceremony gazebo.

Liquid Sky is a sister property with Cetrella restaurant.  They state on the website that “…Liquid Sky Estate is available for stand alone ceremonies or a ceremony followed by a cocktail hour. You may combine your ceremony with a sit down reception at Cetrella restaurant in downtown Half Moon Bay for a complete event package.”  The restaurant offers a Mediterranean cuisine in Half Moon Bay at the quiet end of the town and has an elegant, European atmosphere.

At the Liquid Sky property there is a large indoor facility for the bridal party’s use which includes a full-sized deck on the roof with a 360 degree view of the ocean and the surrounding countryside.

For more information on this location, visit their website at http://www.cetrella.com/coastside.php.  We also have some candid video shots taken after the ceremony last weekend.  These can be found at our Weddings By The Sea Facebook Page.
