Spiritual wedding ceremony in the Redwood Forest

Moraga Redwoods Regional Park, CA 

When Katerina contacted me about photographing her wedding ceremony she described it as a very small family event in the Redwoods. I knew it will be something very special for her and Christopher and something very personal like no other wedding I have photographed before. The ceremony was in the middle of the Redwood forest near Moraga in a fairy ring surrounded by redwoods. To get to the place I needed to put on my hiking shoes :). 

Just two hours of photography session and unbelievable how  many beautiful memories I captured. And that wasn't only a wedding photography, it was also kids photography and family photography all in one for only two hours, which was one of the most exciting and challenging parts for me as an artist and life style photographer.

The wedding ceremony was very spiritual. There were parts of the Bulgarian believes like the bread with salt and honey, drinking of wine from one same glass,  part Western believes and part Buddhist believes. But the most interesting and heartbreaking part was the ceremony with the kids passing through the bridge holding a candle. As for both Katerina and Chris this is a second marriage and both have kids that was very crucial part of their wedding to make the kids feel part of  the circle of family and love.
