Big Trees State Park Wedding | Arnold, CA

Golden California light, towering sequoias, and a joyous celebration—in short, this wedding was a dream to photograph. The late summer day was clear, warm, and exuberant, with family and friends gathered in a beautiful outdoor setting to celebrate the wedding of Tristan and Stasia. They exchanged their vows in a cathedral of sequoias, ancient and steadfast, an auspicious start to their life together. Later, they celebrated beneath the hand hewn beams and chandeliers of Jack Knight Hall. As avid lovers of the outdoors, we admit to having a soft spot for laid-back, outdoor weddings amidst beautiful landscapes. But it wasn’t just the beauty of the setting that made this one of our favorite weddings to date. Tristan and Stasia are two of the kindest, most genuine people we’ve had the pleasure of knowing, and that authenticity comes through in every photo. We feel so fortunate to have been a part of their wedding day.

Tristan and Stasia—we wish you love, happiness, and many wonderful years of outdoor adventures together!

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as the sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
