Rachel and Daniel ventured from Louisville, Kentucky to say their vows under Bridal Veil Falls during their Yosemite National Park Elopement. Before saying their vows, we took their first look photos at Glacier Point for sunrise! The sunrise did NOT disappoint.
Rachel walked up to Daniel as he stared in awe at the valley – the faint sound of waterfalls in the distance and the magnificent Half Dome towering across the way added drama to the scene. When Daniel saw his soon-to-be wife for the first time, his smile was as wide as the valley itself!
After their first look, we went down to the valley for their ceremony at Bridal Veil falls! The misty waterfall made it even more magical. Then they enjoyed food in Half Dome Village with friends and family before camping/hiking for the week!
Moments before seeing each other for the first time as bride and groom. A surreal experience as the sun brushes over the horizon with Half Dome in the backdrop. Daniel’s jaw drops to the floor when he sees his beautiful bride!
We hope you enjoy these photos of these two beautiful souls in Yosemite National Park! If you’re planning on having a Yosemite National Park Elopement, take notes because R&D did it RIGHT!
BTW if you’re wondering if we ate Yosemite Lavender cookies during the day, the answer is YES! For more information on where to purchase Yosemite Lavender cookies (try them, trust us!) click this link!
