This is a special one and means a lot to me. After my first visit 2011 i was totally overwhelmed and full of expectations when i got to opportunity to come back “home” to the Burning Man festival last year.
As most of the “virgins” (first timers are called virgins) i had the stong urge to bring something back to the community. Since its not so easy to bring anything physical on a trip from Europe, it was a no-brainer for me to provide a “service” as gift for somebody at burningman.
So i offered a wedding photography session and found Stacie and Todd online.
And special it was! In the middle of the playa at sunset, Stacie and Todd had their wonderful ceremony. Together with their closest Friends who share their passion for this festival and a few fellows who just joined in, hey did it exactly their way.
This is a perfect example for me, what weddings can or even should be. They didn´t follow any protocol, it was an expression of their personalities and their important values.
Sometimes, i wish there was more of this spirit in weddings generally.
Big Hug, Rob
