Wedding

The Ceremony

Joining our lives together, we have become partners in adventure (climbing) and in art (filmmaking). On September 19, 2015, we celebrated our union by combining those two passions. We chose to have the ceremony in Yosemite as it is an incredibly important place for Shane, and it’s where we got engaged.

Together with our Best Man, Maid of Honor, Officiant/Father(-in-Law) and Videographer/Photographer, we hiked in for about an hour and a half, gaining about 1,000 feet of elevation, to the base of El Capitan. We ascended the wall 300 feet to a small ledge overlooking El Cap Meadow and the Yosemite Valley. We exchanged our vows on that ledge. And we filmed the whole thing.

The Team

Due to the technically and physically challenging nature of our ceremony, only a small, trained group joined us in Yosemite, plus our immediate family members. Our incredible wedding party trained with us for months to prepare for this trip. We want to thank you all for your support of our crazy idea and for coming along on the ride with us!
