Last night I went to the opening of a brand new pizza place on H St [H&Pizza] and I think I am in some sort of pizza hangover realm. So apologies for the lateness of this post AND my utter lack of being able to function enough in my brain to write cohesive thoughts about today’s wedding inspiration post.

Fortunately, this Yosemite mountain wedding from wedding photographer, Joleen Willis [submitted via Two Bright Lights] doesn’t require much added mumbo jumbo from me – the pictures truly speak from themselves. The handmade details, the flowers arranged by the bride’s mom and the stunning wedding portraits in front of mountains …. well, it’s all TRULY gorgeous. Happy Friday Romancers!

Wedding Inspiration from a Rustic, Handmade Wedding in the Mountains

Renee and Burke were married May 12th at the beautiful Evergreen Lodge just outside the entrance to Yosemite. It was truly a location fit for them, as they both find themselves at home when they’re outdoors exploring and adventuring.

 Renee’s mom Gail is a florist, and of course Renee would not trust any other with her florals! Gail assembled all of the florals on site. She had most of the florals delivered for her to build locally, EXCEPT FOR the white bellflowers! Those are from Gail’s garden all the way in Michigan! She packed them carefully in her suitcase and brought them all the way here to California!

Gail also made most of the decorations, the wedding signage, and favors by hand.



I thought it was so neat that Burke brewed his own beer and had it waiting for all his guests when they arrived at the Lodge. [they used an engagement picture as the custom label on their beer!]

So much awesome mountain wedding inspiration happening here! Love all the handmade details too – a special thanks again to Joleen Willis Photography & Two Bright Lights for making this wedding inspiration post possible!
