YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (HawaiiNewsNow) -

After a Hawaii man’s stunning Instagram photo of a mystery newlywed couple at Yosemite National Park sparked a days-long social media search for the bride and groom, the mystery has been solved.

Mike Karas, who has more than 14,400 followers on Instagram, was touring the park when he saw the bride and groom embracing on a rocky ledge during sunset. He snapped a photo and posted it on his Instagram page last week.

Karas said he tried catching the couple before they left the park, but could not find them.

His photo, which generated more than 5,500 likes, was shared by thousands and even appeared on national news.

Karas finally got his answer Tuesday: The bride and groom identified themselves as Australian actors, Catherine Mack and Rick Donald.

Mack posted on her own Instagram page, thanking the public for helping Karas find her and her husband.
