Marissa & Jesse were high school sweethearts from the Bay Area, and although they live in L.A., they wanted to get married near family and somehow make a beach wedding work in Northern California. They decided on the Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay, and picked the perfect time of year (late September) for gorgeous beach weather. They were married on the beach, with their reception just a few steps, or a fun ride on Mr. Toad's Tour Shuttle Bus, back to the hotel. The bride wore a beautiful flowing gown and bare feet for the ceremony, and then changed into a dancing dress later in the evening. The boys wore sandals and beach formal. Lovers of travel, Marissa & Jesse created luggage tags for their guests' seating cards. And after a rocking dance party, Marissa surprised Jesse with his favorite late-night snack - donuts for all!
