This Yosemite National Park Elopement was a dream come true. From her dress to the views from Glacier Point, it was one I will never forget.
Yosemite National Park has been on my bucket list since I could remember and let me tell you, it definitely did not disappoint! Ashley + John decided that they wanted to elope here because it is one of their favorite places, specifically Glacier Point. Glacier Point is an overlooking view of Yosemite Valley, the Half Dome, as well as the multiple waterfalls! You see it all up there. It is just a short walk from the parking lot, which makes it easy because it’s so worth it to see the spectacular view. Their Yosemite National Park Elopement had me felling in love with everything about this National Park. I cant wait to explore more of it one day!
Leading up to the elopement, we were nervous because Yosemite usually doesn’t open the roads until the end of May due to weather, but could possibly always be later! With their elopement being at the end of May, we were checking the road conditions every evening to make sure that the roads we open, thank goodness they were!
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Ashley + John were the absolute sweetest. Their Yosemite National Park Elopement fit them perfectly as they are such an intimate couple that soaked in every moment of their big day. Let’s just talk about her dress too, for a minute.. How beautiful was that lace?! It fit her absolutely perfectly!
