Michel and Jeff flew in from New Zealand for a beautiful destination wedding in the Mariposa forest, where Michel spent her summers as a child. There was so much thought put into every detail of their wedding day, and they had 60 of their closest friends and family from around the world there to celebrate with them. One of my favorite parts of the day was when we hiked through fields of wildflowers and into the forest to visit a giant oak tree that Michel used to play at as a child. I really enjoyed being their photographer, and I hope you all love these photographs as much as I do! Check out more of my favorite photographs in their wedding slideshow here!
