She’s a veterinarian, he’s a UX designer and also plays in a band — together they are an unstoppable force that loves to travel + seek adventure with their pup. The two of them envisioned an intimate + whimsical day, surrounded by woods, in the heart of Yosemite National Park. To make their vision come to fruition, they had close family members fly in from around the U.S.; once everyone was there, they all headed out for the ceremony at 7am, sharp!
Their photographer, Priscila Valentina shares We were completely surrounded by nature, it was a crisp morning and there were even bears walking near the ceremony… But they did not mind us nor did we mind them. The bride and groom had their dog decked out in florals and walked into the ceremony together, where the groom’s father led them as the officiant. They got married on Summer Solstice which is the longest day of the year (June 21st) and tradition says this is the best day of the year for romance.
Ready to take a walk through the woods?
Bright + cheery, while mixing in the starry night sky element, we’re pretty keen on this invitation suite!
MY GOODNESS, his reaction to seeing the love of his life… Absolutely heart melting!
How darling is their pup, especially with the floral collar?!
The bride picked up the flowers in San Francisco before they headed out to Yosemite, and she crafted her own bouquet + their pup’s floral collar!
Those pretty florals really popped in the wooded setting.
Immediately after the ceremony, the bride and her family set up this stunning tablescape, with a collection of geodes, macramé, florals, and pretty details.
We’re LOVING the way those blue hues contrast against the bright florals.
Priscila couldn’t stop raving about the location (and we can see why!). She says: The day carried out to be one of the greatest shoots I’ve ever done, with Yosemite being a giant playground for us to capture their love.
WOAH. Just absolute WOAH.
Yosemite is a place of many wonders… Priscila’s favorite was when they went to Glacier Point and had the clouds in the background, framing Half Dome.
Priscila shares: We had to get a permit beforehand from Yosemite National Park and we were stopped twice to ask if we had a permit. So anyone getting married there, don’t forget to get the permit!
Pure magic. Congrats to the both of you!!
