Rev. Judith Malear, an Ordained Interfaith Minister and notary public with San Mateo County, is a warm, creative, and inspirational wedding officiant. She uses her knowledge of many faiths and spiritual beliefs to assist you in creating a meaningful ceremony that fits your religious and spiritual beliefs and cultural heritage.

Rev. Judith has been performing customized ceremonies at oceanfront locales and other San Mateo Coastside and Bay Area locations for the past eleven years. She studies world religions and philosophies, and practices yoga and meditation. She has enjoyed two long-term happy marriages and has three children and six grandchildren.

Creating your wedding ceremony, vow renewal or baby blessing

Rev. Judith will provide you with a selection of ceremonies. If you wish, she can incorporate your beliefs, family traditions and cultural heritage into one of these ceremonies. She is also adept at creating memorable ceremonies that include each couple’s favorite passages, poetry, songs or rituals and can offer ideas for including children in the ceremony.

Long-distance planning

Rev. Judith has experience assisting couples in planning their event from a long distance. She has married many couples from Europe, Asia, Australia and Canada as well as couples from throughout the United States.
Choosing your oceanside wedding location, San Francisco wedding location, or Bay Area wedding location

Since Pacific Coast Weddings is located a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean (30 minutes from San Francisco International Airport or Palo Alto on the Peninsula, and just 30 minutes south of San Francisco), you can choose a relaxing, intimate ceremony on the beach, in an elegant country garden or in the spectacular California redwoods. You can also choose to have your ceremony (large or small) at other locales in the Bay Area. Some of the venues where Rev. Judith has officiated include the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, the Weston St. Francis Hotel, Fairmont Hotel, the Cliff House and the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco, various Peninsula hotels, and numerous wineries.

Pacific Coast Weddings services

Services include a lovely legal ceremony, handling of all paperwork, a keepsake copy of your ceremony, an AV sound system for the minister, and a confidential marriage license (available upon request).

You don’t have to go all the way to Tahoe or Vegas for an “intimate getaway wedding.” If you are eloping or wish to have a more spontaneous event, Rev. Judith can issue a confidential marriage license and perform your ceremony on short notice. Read less

Judith married us on Labor Day at Cypress Meadows in Moss Beach. She did a fantastic job on all accounts! I particularly appreciated her calm advice and support as we drafted our ceremony and personalized it just for us. She was more than willing to help us add unique touches like Tibetan bells, calling in the four directions, doing a group vow and so much more! Judith is also very efficient - which was great since we were both so pressed for time while planning a wedding and my having a new job.

Last, we lost the sound on our video of the ceremony and Judith went above and beyond by "re-recording" the ceremony so it could be edited in.

Highly recommend her!

We cannot recommend Judith enough for all the she has given us! Our wedding day was truly amazing and magical. Just one week prior to our wedding, our previous officiator called us to inform us that she could not conduct our wedding and provided no back up per our agreement. In a panic, I found Judith's website and fell in love with the warmth in just her photos. We met with her in person just day's before our wedding. She was just amazing. With such short notice, it was as if nothing had ever happened. She was able to assist us in finding a the perfect location, music, and assisted us with our custom ceremony. We are truly blessed and so very grateful for Judith! With so much appreciation for the best ceremony ever - Kathy and Veronica.

I am so glad to have met Judith. She made things so easy for us. Aside for officiating our wedding she had embraced me with all her heart and offered support on our wedding day, as my mother was sick on the day of our wedding. Judith and Linda at the Hasting House has offered their all out support for us. Thank you again Judith. You will always be part of our lives. It's been a pleasure. I do not know how we can go through it without out you and Linda.

Thank you, Judith, for making our wedding day picture perfect. Everything turned out exactly as we had envisioned. Judith helped to make us feel at home in Half Moon Bay. She was able to give great recommendations and we were very pleased with both our accommodations and florist. She was constant and reliable from the beginning which is why we chose her. She worked with us ahead of time over the phone and through email to plan and write our ceremony. We were so charmed by her sweet personality on the day of our wedding. She is warm, compassionate, flexible and fun. Working with her was an absolute joy and I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a destination wedding to Half Moon Bay.

We got married April last year in HMB, I chose the location after searching the internet for hours on end, and finally settling on Judith as our officiant after reading lots of wonderful testimonials on her site.

We wanted a romantic location by the ocean and Half Moon Bay is an adorable little town, and the reason it stood out to me was that my husband grew up in Half Moon Apartments, so we felt it was a sign!

Judith was wonderful in helping us to find a great photographer (Linda from Hastings House) and florist ( I chose Alena Jean Nursery and Flower Shop), she even recommended places to stay! We stayed at the Inn next door, the Cypress Inn...beautiful and convenient!

She was great to deal with through phone and email, assisting us with our vows and giving us some examples to help us write our own and make them personal to us and her kind personality and calm demeanor really helped make our wedding day run smoothly and be the unforgettable experience we had hoped for!

In closing, I would highly recommend Judith as an officiant, and take all her advice because she knows what she's talking about after many years, and many weddings performed!
