Like many girls, Nicole has dreamed of her wedding since she was a little girl. Instead of a castle and carriage, though, Half Dome and waterfalls were always in her dream. Thankfully, Mike shares a love for Yosemite, too, and they visit frequently to hike. Sentinel Beach was a prefect location for their intimate ceremony with family and friends. Catching a sunny day right before a late spring storm, we were fortunate to have Yosemite Falls full of runoff in the background and a dusting of snow on the higher peaks. The wedding day started at Cedar Lodge where Nicole and Mike had their first look right by the river. With a crowd of friends and family to cheer them on, Nicole couldn’t hold back her happy tears. The happy tears resurfaced during their ceremony, where they exchanged vows and did a touching rose ceremony. After portrait time in Yosemite we headed back to Cedar Lodge where a larger gathering of guests were waiting to celebrate with the newlyweds. A video of the ceremony was shown for guests and the evening was full of dinner and dancing. Nicole and Mike had so much fun energy and love for each other.
