Have you heard of the giant Sequoias of California? Nope? Well, let me tell you about them. They’re actually GIANT and super impressive, and they make you feel tiny. Sequoia National Park is one of the most underrated Parks in California and, for that reason, it’s not crowded very often. To have a Sequoia National Park Elopement you’ll need to apply for a permit, but don’t worry, it’s super easy! At the end of this post, you’ll see a link to my guide on how to elope in Sequoia.
Kristin & Brian were supposed to fly out to California for their elopement at the end of December of last year, when the state of CA went into shutdown mode, again. Their hotel reservations got canceled, and so their winter elopement. They decided to get married back home and had to plan a wedding in like, 5 days!
But because these two are crazy tree lovers, and their original plan was always to get married surrounded by these beautiful giants, we did not give up on their elopement plans. This spring we were finally able to plan 2 epic days of adventures with them. We started in Yosemite, where we met them right after their 2-day backpacking trip and took them to Taft Point for sunset. Then, two days later, we all went to Sequoia and had the most peaceful day. We saw about 5 deer, a marmot, and hardly any people. It really couldn’t have been any better!
Sequoia National Park is seriously such a beautiful Park, and so underrated. It’s no secret that we are in Yosemite super often, but we LOVE Sequoia just as much! If you’re considering eloping here, check out my article on How to Plan a Sequoia National Park Wedding!
