Ali & Heather: Down to Earth at Sequoia National Forest

Lara Burnap

Saying "I do" among Redwood trees in the Santa Cruz Mountains was the perfect setting for nature lovers Ali Davis and Heather Orsi. Wanting more than just a ceremony, the duo planned a heartfelt and celebratory weekend for 100 of their closest friends and family at the Sequoia Retreat Center, with everything from hiking to s'mores to an epic dance party that capped off their wedding festivities (even Ali's 90-year-old grandma was on the dance floor!). One of the weekend's most magical moments for the brides was the first look. Ali secretly took saxophone lessons for months and serenaded Heather while she waited for her to appear. The couple also choreographed an amazing three-part first dance: They led with a traditional fox trot that included the entire wedding party. #Lovewins!
