It was by complete chance that I met bride-to-be Stephanie (as she likes to say, it was Serendipity) We just “clicked” and before you know it she and her finace’ Aaron had hired me for their destination wedding in Yosemite.
I hadn’t been to Yosemite since Winter 1986 so this was something I was very excited to do. The wedding was to be in October 2011 and I knew it would be amazing in the fall.
I met Stephanie and Aaron for our site visit at the Yosemite Valley Chapel and Ahwahnee Hotel in June 2011 and fell in love with Yosemite Valley!
I took some time to explore the valley a bit:
Fast forward to October and it is wedding time!
The colors and theme were centered around fall – orange, red, yellow and brown. There were a lot of natural elements including twigs, sticks, pinecones and moss. I had the most fun ever at this wedding partly because I heart this couple mucho, partly because I had an amazing team, and partly because Yosemite just takes my breath away. Enjoy some pics I took and a few that their photographer , Ken Kato, took. (His are the really awseome scenic ones and the ones with me in them 😉
