After a romantic sunset proposal in Hawaii, Jessica Vawter began to plan the wedding of her dreams. She and her fiancé, Amir Amirfar, chose the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay, California, where they held their ceremony on the seaside bluffs.
“It reminded me of my grandmother’s stories about the coast of Ireland, where her parents grew up,” says Jessica. “It made me feel like we were having a destination wedding.”
All the music was hand-picked by Jessica and Amir. "I walked down the aisle to traditional Scottish bagpipes (a nod to my maternal grandparents). We had our favorite Sinatra-era tunes played during the reception."
