Wow, what a stunning location! Captured by Sara France Photography, Sarah and Ryan were married in a small destination wedding in Yosemite, a location with a lot of meaning to the couple. Surrounded by gorgeous large trees and a waterfall, the ceremony was breathtaking. Simple details including single flower bouquets and a succulent boutonniere accented the intimate event. The bride and groom curated a wedding that they shared with their “nearest and dearest”. I love Sarah’s short gown and and jacket!
A story from the bride:
Yosemite is a very special and meaningful place for Ryan and Sarah. It is their “happy place”. Before the wedding, they had shared 3 amazing trips to Yosemite, one of which Ryan proposed to Sarah at the top of Nevada Falls on their 4 year anniversary. They couldn’t imagine a more beautiful and majestic setting for their wedding day. They both love nature and being outdoors. The wedding also provided a chance to share this wonderful place with their closest friends and family, and introduce them to one of their favorite destinations. The ceremony location offered a stunning view of upper Yosemite Falls. The wedding was simple and elegant. They were surrounded by beauty and nature on their special day, which couldn’t have been more perfect.
