Garden Weddings on the Coast

An intimate setting for your special day.

Coastal Weddings in a Private Garden Setting

The Hastings House Garden is a one-of-a-kind site for your wedding ceremony or elopement.

Hastings House is a lovely private outdoor setting, situated on a half-acre on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The site is protected by a grove of trees that help create an intimate, natural setting in the midst of the San Francisco Bay Area. This peaceful, enchanted spot is the perfect intimate backdrop for your wedding ceremony or special day. It is available for ceremonies only. However, for ease in planning, we will assist you with nearby reception choices.

Linda will help you start planning a beautiful wedding, vow renewal, elopement, baby blessing, family photo shoot or engagement photo shoot in the Half Moon Bay Area.

Our wedding was spectacular. Linda helped with ALL the planning.

Linda and Hastings House is amazing!! I really loved this beautiful garden.

The entire experience was impeccable. Linda’s sprawling, blooming gardens felt like an alternate universe of love and magic…

I cannot emphasize how amazing this little gem is that we call Hastings House.

The gardens were absolutely stunning and Linda made the entire process so seamless and stress free…We would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Plan the Wedding of your Dreams…

Beautiful Weddings by the Sea in Half Moon Bay!

Plan the wedding of your dreams in this beautiful garden setting.  The garden provides an intimate backdrop for your guests. Fragrant paths lure you into this oasis in the midst of hurried life. Meander through areas filled with herbs and sweetly scented roses reminiscent of gardens of old. Stately trees enclose you in a private and secluded setting. The crashing ocean waves and the songs of birds are the music of this garden site.

The garden is in bloom throughout the year. Peak seasons for blooms are spring, summer and fall. The colors are varied with pinks, whites, yellows, blues, purples and reds in combinations that are pleasing to the eye and senses. Winter brings a cooler palette of blue, yellow and purple blossoms with a rich green backdrop.

As you plan your wedding ceremony, Linda Montalto Patterson, the gardener and designer of Hastings House will personally assist you. Linda has years of experience creating unique weddings for each of the couples that visit the garden. Her expertise extends to photography so you may choose to have her photograph your wedding, as well. To add to the ambiance, Linda’s husband Richard provides guitar accompaniment.

Linda Montalto Patterson, the gardener and designer of Hastings House, started working on the gardens in 1984. She has a master’s degree in art and most of her work is inspired by the beauty of nature. It seemed a natural progression to extend her artistic eye to the landscape around her and thus Hastings House Garden was born.

Linda is the landscaper, gardener and the visionary who created the grounds. She is also an accomplished photographer available to not only help with the ceremony but to photograph your event as well. Her husband Richard comes from a background in touring and recording with Columbia Artists Management and will play guitar for you at your wedding.

This is a family business owned and operated by Linda and Richard Patterson. There is no other staff so you can be assured that you will always be in good hands. It is a commitment to you based on a family tradition of opening their personal, garden space to you and your guests and making your experience so memorable. Linda will answer all your questions and take care of your needs.
