The outdoor wedding of Marti and Michael was just like that. It was a quintessence of being truly together on the wedding day. It was also the most emotional, mind-blowing wedding we have ever been to. As an intimate ceremony, only the Bride, the Groom and their closest family, two dogs and one cat, it took place in the forest and nearby field, where Marti and Michael are planning to build their new home. This traditional Slavic ceremony was full of rituals, small but important details and what is the most outstanding is that the couple was constantly focused on each other and their feelings. They meditated together, cried together while paying the vows, and enjoying every single moment of the day. Both, the place of the wedding and dinner, all decorations and clothing was prepared by the members of the family. After the wedding, everybody sang folk songs and danced.
