Margaret and Doug's Sarasota Courthouse wedding ceremony and photography at Selby library.

Intimate, elegant, minimal, simple and small weddings. A new trend among young, engaged couples. It's becoming one of my favorite things. I hope more couples go for it. It's so uncomplicated and you actually get to enjoy your wedding day with family and friends.  Margaret and Doug had their intimate wedding ceremony at the Historic Sarasota Courthouse and were joined by a small group of family and friends. It was a rainy, windy day. We were suppose to go to Marina Jack's for couples portraits and we ended up at the beautiful Selby public library instead.  The Selby public library it is a very-hard to ignore building in downtown Sarasota for it's distinctive colunms  that run the entire diameter of the building.  Margaret's beautiful flowers was provided by Publix.
