Hop in your art car and head to this Burning Man wedding

Since photographer Stefanie Höpner knew a lot of people going to Burning Man last year, she decided to add to the tradition of gifting that's such a huge part of the event — by gifting her photography skills! She photographed Chris and Amanda as they said their vows in front of a shaman at the Temple of Grace, surrounded by their friends. The London/LA couple had first met at Burning Man last year, and they celebrated their gorgeous, sunset wedding with poems they'd written for each other.

Here is the Decision Flow Chart I made for our friends and family to determine if they want to/are able to come to our Burning Man wedding ceremony…

'Stina & Graham's DIY country ranch wedding

This pair tackled tons of DIY projects, battled some very inconsistent weather, and had to cater a party in the middle of the country. But you'd never know these were even challenges when you see the awesome Mexican catering, the cool ambiance (event producer groom FTW!), and the lovely weather. These photos give off one theme more than any other: FUN.
