Sleeves, sleeves and more sleeves. Whether your are considering a wedding gown with sleeves to stave off chilly mountain nights, or your church requires modesty, gowns with sleeves are the new classic trend that’s here to stay.

One of my favorite aspects of my job is helping mountain brides. Sometimes helping them means I find the best expert to offer them advice.

Bergreen Photography specializes in adventure photography and is very familiar with weddings and elopements in both the Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park.
Reader Question: Eloping in Sequoia National Park
My name is Lindsay. My fiancé Zach and I have been planning a wedding that was going to take place in May of 2015, but we are getting overwhelmed and are quickly feeling that the day is becoming more about everyone else instead of just us and our love for each other.

The result is a darling mountain wedding full of sweet details.
