Inspired by the below John Muir quote this elopement editorial by Charleston wedding photographer CLAY AUSTIN takes place at the stunning Yosemite National Park. Styled by Carrie from TYPE A SOCIETY, it features a beautiful gown from CAROL HANNAH BRIDAL which is quite the spectacle with it's movement on the jaw-dropping rock formations of the park. Carrie says, "We watched the sun dip behind the mountains and see the sky turn into a myriad of candy colours. It was truly a magical moment."

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

- John Muir
