Yellow + Grey Memphis Courthouse Elopement

It’s no secret that we love elopements! They’re short, sweet, and all about the marriage. It might be your first inclination to think that going through security, then waiting in line, only to sit in a quiet courtroom, might detract from the romance of a wedding day, but you’d be mistaken! All those things only add to the excitement and anticipation. A wedding at the courthouse is just like a wedding anywhere else. There’s a real bride, a real groom, a real (and ultra legal!) officiant, and after the real vows, there’s a real marriage. Michelle and Terrence decided to simplify their day and focus on their marriage. They had a beautiful wedding day, with all the things that they wanted, but without the things they didn’t.

Michelle, like any other bride, was positively giddy on her wedding day! She couldn’t stop laughing, her face radiant with a beautiful pre-wedding glow. She giggled nervously, surrounded by friends and family, as they all waited for their names to be called.  And when it came time to seal the deal, her heart pounded with nervous energy and her stomach was filled with butterflies!
Terrence, like any other groom, lied and told Michelle he wasn’t nervous at all. A naturally quiet guy, he remained calm, stoic, and strong.  But inside, I suspect that his stomach was doing flips of its own! It was only After making Michelle his wife that his stern facade cracked with a broad smile, and we began to see the real man underneath.

After the ceremony, we roamed around downtown Memphis for a few bridal portraits. What better spot for a grey and yellow wedding than this grey striped wall? I’m so glad we found this!

Even for a courthouse wedding, Terrence stepped up his sock game! I love fun groom socks so much!
