Courthouse weddings don't have to be drab, especially when your courthouse is beautiful (like the Washington County courthouse), you request an outside ceremony with the judge (I didn't even know you could do that, did you?!) or, when your bride and groom show up looking dapper as hell. Ian and Ana hired me for two hours and we made some magic together on a smoky, hot day in September. A huge wildfire nearby was burning and so the air smelled like a campfire and the light was softened with an orange hue. There were even ashes falling, dusting the men's coat jackets during the ceremony. I'm so happy for these two and so glad I got to spend time with them on their wedding day! Small weddings are the absolute best.
