Vannesa and Stetson spent over a year planning their El Dorado National Forest winter elopement and of course, their wedding day was also the first winter storm of the year. It started snowing on the drive up to Kyburz which is surrounded by the El Dorado National Forest in California, and the storm stopped right after their first kiss. Their portraits surrounded by falling snow were the perfect addition to their warm fur coats. It helped to create some winter magic!

All the details were DIY'd by the bride and groom, from making and decorating the arch, and appetizers to baking the cake. This wedding was one filled with a personal touch, and details that were closely connected to the couple.
