Tina & Josh’s elopement was MAGICAL. Their favorite thing to do together is visiting national parks. They even have a pact to visit one in every state! So naturally, Yosemite was the perfect place for them to tie the knot!!!

Josh is in the Marine Corps and Tina is a (self-described) adventure-seeking accountant residing in California!! I instantly knew we’d be such a great match. My first job out of college was as an accountant and I’ve always loved adventuring, so I knew we were of similar minds!! 

Details of their day!!!

They kicked off the day with a ceremony and picnic at Swinging Bridge with some of their immediate family members (plus two sweet family pups!). Directly after, they shared the most incredibly gorgeous boho wedding picnic, including a fun champagne pop to kick it off. I loved how much thought they put into creating their setup and details. They were ready to go with everything thoughtfully arranged for maximum beauty and ease for setting up!  Josh’s mom gave a short and sweet toast and from there they took their time relaxing with their loved ones. There was soooo much laughter and celebration!!!

From there just the 3 of us (plus my husband/amazing assistant!!) headed up to Glacier Point for the most adventurous ending to the day! We explored all around Glacier Point. We ended the day with evening forest photos for Tina’s traditional Vietnamese dress change!!!!
