Yosemite Valley Wedding

September 9, 2022

After shifting pandemic plans from a full Santa Cruz Mountain Wedding, they opted for a more intentional celebration with their closest friends and family. N & C started their day getting ready at Rush Creek Lodge (one of my FAVORITE places to stay when going to Yosemite, besides camping of course 😉), a place I first was introduced to earlier on in my career at G+D’s wedding. We then caravaned into Yosemite National Park to have their ceremony along the Merced River with El Capitan towering behind them and reflecting in the water. Family and friends brought their foldable chairs, and Willi Wildflower brought the floral magic for their ceremony in the valley.

After their ceremony, they had a beautiful breakfast spread picnic, and I took N&C around the park for portraits. We ended the evening with stunning private dining for their reception at Rush Creek Lodge. With incredible attention to detail down to the delicate maidenhair fern pressed into the wedding cake, their celebration was an intimate, beautiful, grounding experience among the trees and granite of Yosemite National Park.

N&C thanks for having me along for the ride 🙂
