Bodega Ridge // Galiano Island Wedding
Christina + Ben
Everything with love and intention.
Christina + Benjamin’s wedding in Dionisio over on Galiano Island was a dream to shoot. Family and friends flying in from all over the US, Canada, and as far as Australia to be with them in this heartfelt and emotional ceremony that was unique in every way.
Guests biked, canoed, hiked to get to this unique part of land, walking through burning sage to create 2 circles for Christina and Benjamin to enter. Christina canoed over with her journey women to be received by her parents to enter the circle where their close friend Aileen conducted a beautiful ceremony that included many readings and the passing of their rings, each held and given love and support before being placed on Ben and Christina’s hands. They then placed flower crowns on each other and celebrated their union.
Ben’s vows in particular were beautiful – he spoke of finding his soul mate again – as if they knew each other in another life – only to be reconnected in this life and the love and familiarity of finding Christina again was so powerful.
Big thanks to Jesse and his team at Bodega Ridge on Galiano for running such a smooth ship with incredible food at a jaw dropping setting. Hats of to you guys.
Finally, thank you to all of the guests who made me feel so welcome and really a part of this incredible weekend .. and a huge congratulations Christina + Ben, thank you so much for including me in your day.
