Amy and Ryan first started planning their dream elopement in Sequoia National Park prior to covid and like many couples that caused a little speed bump in planning. Thankfully they were flexible with their date and we were able to move forward with planning.
The day of their elopement I met Amy and Ryan at their hotel where they helped each other get ready and then we packed up the cars and drove up the mountain. During the winter there were not as many visitors so we practically had the whole place to ourselves as we adventured through the park taking pictures among the giant Sequoia trees. Standing underneath those amazing giants reminds you of just how small we are and how amazing nature can be.
We found a nice little spot in the snow and we had a winter picnic with hot chocolate and a little cake they picked up on the way perfect for two. Afterwards we made our way out to the ceremony location where they read their vows to each other as the sun set in the horizon, a lovely ending to a beautiful day.
