Well, I finally did it... I agreed to photograph a wedding. It took just the right combination of flattery and persistence to convince me. I couldn't have asked for a more gracious bride (and family!) to introduce me to this wonderful, crazy, beautiful world of weddings.

Cicily and Michael's laid-back personalities and humor kept the day filled with laughter. The wedding was a mixture of casual elegance and took place at Cicily's family home. Cicily's creative touches were evident in all the details (she even hand-made her wedding invitations!) Her family pitched in with an amazing seafood broil to celebrate the occasion. The first day of Spring did not disappoint! It was a perfect day for a wedding!
