Intimate Sunrise Elopement At Taft Point in Yosemite
This beautiful Yosemite Wedding was photographed by Nick & Danée, two incredibly talented wedding photographers in California. If you are planning your elopement in the national park right now, you should def check them out.
To get the full experience about this intimate elopement we will have Nick & Danée guide you through the wedding day between the images.
Eloping in Yosemite
3:30 am – We wake up and hit the road
4:30 am – We arrive at the trailhead of Taft Point in Yosemite National Park and meet Kiki and Avram.
5:00 am – We arrive at Taft Point and Kiki and Avram start getting ready for the most magical Yosemite wedding!!
The magic about Yosemite
When we say magical, it is such an understatement, and we are pretty sure there are no words that can describe how amazing this entire experience was.
Kiki and Avram anxiously got ready cliffside in the near pitch black. And just as the first light started to show itself, we started with a few portraits of the two of them. The goal was to take photos all the way up until just before sunrise and then have their ceremony just as the sun popped out. It turned out that our timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
Their officiant, Carole, showed up right before sunrise and we started the intimate Yosemite wedding they had always dreamed of. They cried, Carole cried, WE CRIED! It could not have been more perfect.
There was something so special about their ceremony and knowing that the rest of the world was sound asleep while they quietly said: “I do”.
The summer solstice during a Yosemite Wedding
We are so grateful and blown away that we get to be a part of such beautiful moments with amazing humans. Kiki and Avram even asked us to be their witnesses and sign their marriage license (such an honor).
They actually got married on the longest day of the summer, the summer solstice. What better way to celebrate a marriage than with champagne and summer solstice beer :).
The moment we left, we were immediately hoping for another email to come in. That would take us back to the National Park for another Yosemite wedding or elopement. Seriously so in love with this place.
Kiki and Avram here’s to a long lasting friendship. We hope to share a beer with you again in the near future. Cheers!
