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  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.
