Kate and Danyael had a gorgeous evening ceremony at the outdoor mausoleum at the Inglewood Park Cemetery, with guests seated in a spiral (we love spiral seating!). The rituals were a combination of Pagan and Shamanic traditions, owing to Kate's observance of Wicca and Danyael's Native American ancestry.
Before entering the spiral, guests were given a cleansing smoke bath of burning sage and handed an amethyst stone to bless with their good wishes. From there, the ceremony included a tribute to the four directions, a performance of the seven steps, jumping the broom, and drinking water poured from a Native American wedding vase. Following the ceremony, everyone relocated to the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Hollywood for the reception.
Best Coast Photo had the opportunity to see this first-hand and we are so grateful that they shared it with us. Give me a ceremony at dusk any day.
