Intimate Cliffside Yosemite Vow Renewal | JC + Stephanie
intimate yosemite vow renewal summit and sur gorgeous inspo wedding wire the knot zion brides

After 10 years together, JC and Stephanie decided to renew their vows in a place they had long wanted to visit together: Yosemite National Park. With JC's love of climbing and their mutual love of the outdoors, they picked a location that they would also remember.

They started their vow renewal afternoon with a first look at Tunnel View; after soaking in the incredible sights of El Capitan, Half Dome, and the valley floor, they headed up Glacier Point Road to start their hike to Taft Point.

As they started their hike, the light was giving them its best, with the most golden colors, lighting up every tree and surface around. They stopped for photos along the way, with JC helping Stephanie manage her gorgeous, long gown as they scrambled rocks together.

Once they arrived at Taft Point, they enjoyed the spectacle that surrounded them grabbing some photos on the famous cliffside. After a few photos, they shared intimate vows with each other, bringing each other to tears. Afterward, they popped a bottle of champagne and toasted to another 10 years!
