06 Mar Downtown Memphis Courthouse Elopement
We have such a special love story to share with you today! One of our favorite things to shoot is a courthouse wedding. Elopements are all about marriage! It’s a way for two people to say they want to be together forever, but they don’t need a big event to celebrate their love. When they ask us to be there with them, it’s the highest honor! Having us there means that these memories are priceless to them, and they want each moment documented in the most beautiful way possible. We think courthouse weddings are so romantic, and Celia and Jeff’s wedding day was no exception!
Downtown Memphis Courthouse Elopement
Celia and Jeff have been together for 4 years. When they decided to get married, they were joining more than just two people. They each have children, and they wanted all their boys to be able to finally call each other “brother.” There’s nothing sweeter to us than a new family officially binding together! When they said their “I Do’s,” they only wanted their kids, and us, present. It was an extremely intimate, treasured occasion!
The weather Gods blessed us with an amazing day for a wedding! The temperature was warm for February. An occasional breeze gave Celia’s dress and hair just the lift we needed for awesome photos, like the first one below. That Beyoncé wind is the best! The sun peeked out at regular intervals to give us that post-wedding “glow.” Not that these two needed it! They were so happy to finally call each other husband and wife.
We made sure to grab a few photos inside the courthouse. We always love shooting there! The building has such pretty architecture, both inside and out. I mean, an entire white building with lots of windows? Yes, please! Celia and Jeff brought their own style and personalities, with a touch of comic book super hero nerdiness.
Celia and Jeff, we are so glad we got to know you! We are always in favor of families joining together, and yours is so special! We think you both are the best super heroes. We’re so glad it’s finally official, and beyond grateful that we got to be there! Thank you for allowing us to capture your love story. Enjoy a few of our favorites from your day!
