Yosemite holds a special spot in Josh and Mia’s hearts, especially since it’s where Josh popped the question.

Mia and Josh’s wedding day began with an early morning ceremony set against the backdrop of a beautiful sunrise. The sun’s gentle light painted the surroundings with a golden hue as they exchanged their vows. The couple’s thirty guests, including their precious one-year-old daughter, watched on and shared in their happiness from the amphitheater stairs.
After the ceremony, Mia and Josh had a romantic first dance as the sun continued to rise behind them. It was one of those sweet moments that felt just right. Then came some family and friend photos and a celebratory toast! The morning flowed into a leisurely picnic complete with great company, remarkable views, and fresh mountain air.
