A Yosemite Wedding: Beth + Kevin

Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places on earth – imagine getting married there! Not much you need to do in terms of decor, but Beth + Kevin still added lots of their own unique touches to their wedding. They made the chuppah themselves as well as all the reception tabletop details and paper products. I love how their details + wedding style completely echoed the grandeur + majesty of the venue and Yosemite. Very them, not over the top, and so Yosemite!

I just love their DIY chuppah! They even incorporated all their guests names and their favorite virtues about themselves in the paper details. Their ceremony procession included their family dancing in down the aisle. :) Then they had their first dance right after they were pronounced man and wife – love that!

  5. I agree with the above comments 100%!

    The venue was stunning- I almost wonder who wouldn’t prefer the great outdoors to a stuffy indoor venue.

  11. It would be my DREAM to get married in Yosemite! Yosemite is the most amazing and beautiful place I’ve ever been and I cant wait to go back this August with my now fiance!

  12. Hi Krisle-

    Thanks for your comment! Just wanted to let you know that the little girls did wear dresses for the ceremony (if you scroll down a few photos you can see them in their dresses) – that was just when they were getting ready which I thought was such an adorable photo!

    • Hello! I absolutely love everything about this wedding…especially since I spent my childhood summers in Yosemite. It is home to me. I am engaged and Yosemite is always where I wanted to get married. Please Please tell me how you can do this the way you have because when I have looked into it, it states you cannot put out chairs or do anything like I am seeing in these photos. What is the exact location that you are able to do this in Yosemite?
