Wedding at The Island Farm in Half Moon Bay, Ca

Posted by Dave Medal on February 21, 2018

Jeni and Daniel had their wedding at the Island Farm in Half Moon Bay Ca. This was my first time getting to photograph a wedding here and I was pretty excited about it!

One of my favorite parts of my job is where it takes me. Its always a fun adventure. The Island Farm is like a land lost in time nestled amongst the redwoods. The property has been owned by the same family for 90+ years. The log cabin was built in the early 1900’s. The log cabin was perfect for Jeni and her bridesmaids to get ready. From the ridge you get views of the pacific coastline for miles in either direction. Ive driven past the road so many times never knowing what a little gem was there. I was 45 min from my house but felt like I was on vacation. It made perfect sense why they had their wedding wedding at the Island Farm in Half Moon Bay

Jeni and Daniel were married in the forest with their families and closest friends. The ate delicious food by candle light, drank refreshing cocktails and danced the night away. I was truly honored to photograph their beautiful wedding. The day went off with out a hitch thanks to all the planning from coast side couture and the rest of the talented vendors listed below. Please enjoy the images of Jeni and Daniels wedding at The Island Farm in Half Moon Bay. Thanks for looking!

Wedding at Nestldown in Los Gatos, Ca. Meris and Jesse

Posted by Dave Medal on November 24, 2015

Meris and Jesse had their wedding at Nestldown in Los Gatos, Ca. Nestldown is one of my favorite locations in the bay area to photograph at. I spent a lot of time exploring the redwood forests in that area as a kid. It always feels like I’m going home, which is a good thing.

I had the pleasure of getting to work with Meris and Jesse at their engagement session. This always makes my job so much easier when I get to spend time with clients prior to their wedding day.  M+J decided to do a first look before their ceremony. It was important for them to spend as much time with their loved ones. We were able to get a majority of the photos done before the ceremony so M+J could join the cocktail hour and celebrate with their friends and families. Meris and Jesse were such a sweet couple. I had such a fun time getting to photograph their beautiful wedding at Nestledown in Los Gatos, Ca.

Meris and Jesses treated their guests to a wonderful wedding. They were married under the redwoods surrounded by loved ones. M+J rode the train into their cocktail hour.  Their guests dined near a pond and said their well wishes to the new couple as the sun set. The night was capped of with dancing, delicious cocktails, and desserts in the barn. Then the couple said their good byes and had their grand exit in the famous antique taxi. The perfect end to a perfect day.

And as always thank you to all the vendors that worked hard to make it a wonderful day for the wonderful Bride and Groom. If your planning on having your wedding at Nestldown in Los Gatos I would love to hear about your plans. Feel free to reach out and say hello! Dave Medal Photography
