Michelle and Brendan had a sweet ceremony in a meadow nestled in the woods of Durham, NC.

I waited with the couple at their house while everyone else went to the meadow. I drove them to the wedding site so we joked that I was their "chautographer!"
Brendan and Michelle walked down the wooded path that led to the meadow; Brendan played accoustic guitar as they walked. It was beautiful!
A bee came near Sophia (Michelle's oldest daughter) but she didn't make a peep until Michelle had finished reciting her vows at which point she said, "A bee. It's on me! A BEE!! A bee…" She kept her composure, though, even if she was a little embarassed afterward.
"May your path be adventurous and your love remain forever strong. You may now kiss each other and go forth on your amazing journey together!"
A few months earlier, they had seen the band, Another Roadside Attraction preforming at a local flea market and decided that they would have to get them to play at the reception. They play an eclectic blend of prohibition era gypsy jazz, folk, bluegrass and more. They fit perfectly with the feel of the entire wedding!

The first dance (of many more to come.)
