Amy and Ryan planned their dream elopement in Sequoia National Park before covid. Although they had a few hiccups on the way, they were still able to have an adventurous winter elopement in Sequoia National Park.
Sequoias are some of the oldest and largest trees in the world and can live for over 3,000 years! This is because they have a particular chemical in their bark called tannin that protects them against rotting, insects, and even fires. These beautiful trees can grow up to 300 feet tall, and the most known tree, the General Sherman Tree, is 36ft in diameter. I love nature! Nothing makes you feel quite as small as standing next to these giants. Which makes it the best place for an elopement in Sequoia. Fun fact: Sequoia NP was the first park created to protect a living organism! To protect them from logging.
We drove up the winding mountain road into the park and explored the incredible giants for their portraits. One benefit of going in the winter is fewer visitors, making it a more intimate experience. We found a spot in the snow for a winter picnic with hot chocolate and a small cake for two. Then, we hiked to Beetle Rock for their sunset ceremony, where they shared private vows in a sweet and intimate ceremony. I am so glad we could make their dreams come to life with their adventurous winter elopement in Sequoia National Park.
