An icon of California, show stopping and majestic are just a few of the words I would use to describe the wonder that is Yosemite National Park. Here’s a wonderful and non-typical wedding shoot in this place. This editorial was designed to inspire engaged couples to select elements of their wedding thoughtfully to bring greater meaning to their big day. It’s vibrant, sentimental, and the perfect location for California-loving couples!
The shoot was set up at Tunnel View, which provides sweeping views of El Capitan, Half Dome, and Bridalveil Falls. It is nothing short of “majestic” and the other details of the shoot compliment it wonderfully. Capturing the energic Cali-vibe was the goal of Laurel and Vine when designing the vibrant, playful floral designs. Soil and Studio created a stunning floral preservation of the wedding bouquet for this shoot. So, no bride needs to say goodbye to her bouquet ever again.
The funky, fun, unique hand dyed fabrics by Indigo Designeri were a groovy detail for any Californian with a little hippy in them. The indigo pocket square, napkins, and ribbon harken back to the world-changing hippy movement in the 60s which had its origins in Northern California.
The wicker centerpiece container and wicker napkin rings by One True Love are representative of the Miwok Indians who originally inhabited Yosemite. They excelled in intricate basket making and these small details on the sweetheart table acknowledge their noteworthy relationship with the sacred land. Baked by Victoria Bakery, the blue cake was included in the shoot to match the majestic backdrop behind the couple.
