Intimate and Warm Courthouse Elopement | Kristina + Brett

For some, a courthouse elopement is exactly the intimate and warm atmosphere they’re looking for on their wedding day. Many courthouse buildings offer dramatic, detailed architecture as a backdrop as the couple and family gather on the steps outside. Kristina and Brett were joined by their closest family as they tied the knot at the Austin Courthouse.

Focused on Love

Kristina and Brett had simple expectations for their wedding day, particularly that it would be small, intimate, and focused on their love. They found the Honorable Judge Nicholas Chu to be a welcoming and warm presence who took the time to make the ceremony special and memorable despite not knowing them previously. Kristina held a beautiful bouquet of flowers accented by a small photo pendant. The excitement of their family was palpable as they waited to begin their union.

Plan For You

The couple knew that their wedding needed to be what felt right for them as individuals and as partners, and that the rest would fall into place. The intimate atmosphere was just right, and the judge was incredible and really took things to the next level. Afterward, Kristina and Brett came to our Southern Love Studio for some formal shots. With their perfect wedding complete, the excited couple are ready to spend the rest of their lives with one another and see what comes next.

“It was an unforgettable experience filled with love…”
