Being one of many elopement venues in California, the Yosemite National Park is the perfect backdrop for your elopement if you love waterfalls, the power of glaciers, deep valleys, grand meadows, vast wilderness, and the tranquility of the High Sierra.
Glacier Point is an overlook with a breathtaking view of Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls, and Yosemite’s high country. You can drive to the Glacier Point parking and tour unloading area, and follow a short, paved, wheelchair-accessible trail to get a to Glacier Point. Check out this Glacier Point elopement for more inspiration.
If you feel more adventurous, you can take the Half Dome Day Hike to get to the summit, which is a popular elopement destination. Make sure to get a special use permit for this location. Taft Point is a similar location with easier access if you enjoy hiking.
The Bridalveil Fall is open year-round and is at its peak during spring and early summer. You can access this location from the parking area that leads directly to the base of this waterfall. Though this trail is paved, it is not wheelchair accessible.
The Glacier Point Road will be closed in 2022 until 2023 to all traffic. You will only be able to access Glacier Point, the Four Mile, Panorama, and Pohono Trails, all of which are strenuous hikes. This information is crucial for your elopement if you want to get married at one of the iconic viewpoints that are at the end of this road.
Every season comes with its advantages and disadvantages, depending on what you prefer. Fall might be the best time to get married at the Yosemite National Park, specifically October and November. During this period, the trees are colorful and vibrant, and there are less visitors in the park.
Spring is popular as the waterfall is at its peak and the wildflower meadows are blooming. This season is also less visited and might be your perfect option if you prefer more intimacy and privacy.
Summer is definitifely the busiest season but also the one with the best weather. If you prefer more privacy, then a spring or fall wedding might be better for you. Winter is the least visited season of the year. Some iconic wedding venues, such as the Glacier Point are closed, but the valley is still open and gives you a magical snowy wedding backdrop.
