When Jenessa and Josh contacted me and asked if I was available to photograph their courthouse wedding I was so excited! I have never had the opportunity to shoot an intimate day quite like this. I feel like me getting into a big long drawn out paragraph about how cute they are and how romantic and personal this was really won’t do it justice. Instead I think we should go straight to the photos! Starting with heading into the courthouse. ;)
So this is all new to me. Apparently the St. Louis County Courthouse in Clayton only does wedding ceremonies on Wednesdays. So every Wednesday there is a line like this of people waiting to get married! Another couple had hired a photographer as well so I made a new friend while we were waiting. You can see her couple giving her a grin. :)
I’m not sure what Josh said to deserve that face from Jenessa but I kinda love it. I feel like I make that face at Steve all of the time. And he usually deserves it. Love you honey!
I don’t know why but the strictness of the “don’t throw ANYTHING” sign made me chuckle.
Just waiting here on this court bench…
Ok! Step one complete! Marriage license in hand. On to part II – waiting to get married!
Oooo! Names called. We are next!
And into the office of the judge. Here goes nothing!
Love their families looking on…all smiles.
And five minutes later…I now pronounce you husband and wife!
It’s official! And we’re off to take some fun portraits.
Just a few by the courthouse and then off to play in the park!
These wispy little tree branches make me happy.
So cute together. My job is REALLY easy sometimes.
These flowers. Perfect. Too bad they were only around for a week or so.
Favorite photo of the day!
And after all of those hours in heels, it was time to hand them off to the new hubby. Why are all of the prettiest shoes so painful?! It’s one of those unfair universe things.
Such a beautiful and fun day!
Congratulations to you both! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day! With love, Liz
