URGENT: Officiant & Photographer Needed

Post by InvincibleSummer1 » Mon Aug 06, 2018 11:17 am

Hi you lovely, fearless playa people,

After many years, my partner and I are looking to elope at )'(. We are looking for an officiant who is allowed to preside over weddings at Burning Man (so... an in-state officiant) to help us out.

Also, hopefully this isn't too optimistic, but we would love it if any of you kind souls would be part of our big day and take kick ass photos of us.

Two romantics who would be eternally grateful to you

There is a wedding department for BRC, google to find.

Contact photogs whose work you like; check out the BM Gallery for ideas.

Blessings and congratulations.

My friend is a professional photographer. If he’s at the burn this year I’ll tell him to reach out. I’m sure he’d love too! 🤗

I am a volunteer with the Dept of Wedding Planning, their direct email is: weddings@burningman.org

Myself, I am a Minister and licensed to perform legal marriages on the Playa as well as a professional photographer. I can take photos before and after but I'm just not good enough to take them while I perform a ceremony... yet :) Just a reminder, in BRC there is no money exchange so whoever you get to assist you, this should be given as a free gift to you.

I'm giving this a nudge over to the Q&A board, since that's a better fit for threads seeking help with an on-playa wedding.

Rev. Racks, you rock thanks for the info!
