Dark Fairy Tale Wedding Shoot in the Mountains

When it comes to the perfect location for a dark fairy tale inspired wedding, I can think of no place more ideal than Mount Tamalpais. When I was little, my dad would tell me stories about the legend surrounding the Bay Area landmark, the Mountain of the Sleeping Princess, spurring my love of storytelling and mythology.

A vintage ruby engagement ring from Trumpet & Horn and vintage patterned trays and china added a suitably regal touch to the woodland setting. The open fields and inviting sky set the scene for an elopement with vows exchanged overlooking foothills leading down to the sea.
