The Perfect Wedding Experience in a National Park!!

Yosemite National Park in east-central California is one of the most breathtaking national parks!! The park spans roughly 748,000 acres along the central western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The national park is best known for its sparkling waterfalls, towering granite monoliths, deep valleys, ancient giant trees, and miles of mountain views — Which make for the perfect elopement destination surrounded by the serenity of God’s creations. It’s a true gem!!

Donna & Brian’s day started early in the morning by driving up to Glacier Point. They exchanged their vows in front of Glacier Point before sunrise, which made for some of the most iconic views in the whole park!!! It was a very intimate, special morning! As the sun started to peak over Glacier Point, Donna & Brian took in the sunrise and stillness of the park together. Such a peaceful start to a wonderful day ahead!

Donna & Brian were on a mission to explore the entire national park, so we ventured to Yosemite Valley to take in the views of Yosemite Falls. The Falls are the highest waterfall in the park and are such a stunning part of the park. The combination of the waterfall and the landscape of beautiful trees made for the most enchanted forest vibes!!!

We ended the day by hiking to Taft Point! The scenery was unlike anything I’d ever experienced. We were able to see the entire valley of Yosemite as the sun was setting!!! It was a bittersweet end to the day as Donna & Brian took in the views and embraced their day as a couple! Starting the day at Glacier Point and ending it at Taft Point was amazing!!

Donna & Brian are truly some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met!! I couldn’t be more honored to have been there to experience their special day with them!
