This summer, courthouse weddings are all the rage. Between the ever changing social-distancing rules, family who are unable to travel and other extenuating circumstances, many couples are opting to elope at city hall! Personally, I love a courthouse wedding. These ceremonies are so intimate, passionate and carefree. That’s why I put together this post. All you need is a moodboard, list of vendors, and wedding timeline to help you start envisioning your perfect day!
I love the modern, carefree and super romantic feeling to the photos above. They remind us that courthouse weddings don’t have to be any less chic than a more traditional style event.

Wear a shorter dress. Get matching vintage sunglasses. Laugh a lot.

Your love story and your wedding ceremony are uniquely perfect for you. That’s why I believe your wedding timeline should be unique and perfect for you too! Every bride I work with receives a fully customized timeline.
