A Steam Engine Train and Ceremony in the Redwoods | Ben & Felice

After Ben & Felice's high energy, tons-of-fun engagement session at Moss Beach, I had high hopes for their wedding.  With a pie bar, swing dancing, and a train ride to a sunlit ceremony in the Redwoods, their wedding far exceeding anything I imagined.

The happy couple invited friends and family to join them at Roaring Camp Railroads for a jaunt through the redwood forest on an authentic, 19th century steam engine train.  When guests arrived at the mountain top, they were greeted with sunshine peeking through the trees -a big improvement from the fog below- and a beautiful cathedral of centuries-old redwoods.  Their ceremony was sweet, personal, and emotional for all present.  On their way back to the train, Ben & Felice couldn't help but literally dance with joy.  The newlyweds showed off more swing dancing moves at the reception before surprising guests with dancing lesson for everyone present!  Overall, the day was energetic, romantic, emotional, joyful, and laid back all at the same time - a perfect representation of the lovely couple.

Ben & Felice - thank you so much for inviting me to capture your awesome wedding.  I'm honored you chose me to be with you that day and I'm thrilled to count you both as new friends. ♥

  1. The location is seriously amazing! How fun and beautiful! Love that! Also, I love the bride's hair, from the back it looks like a cherry pie! That probably sounds so weird, but it's the first thing I thought of! Beautiful photos as always!

  2. So lovely and romantic! Wow. We visited the redwoods last year and were just in awe of the beauty of the forest -- I can't imagine having a wedding there. Your photos are stunning, Stephanie -- especially the shot with the bride and groom laughing and leaning from the train window!
