I love shooting Charlottesville Courthouse weddings so much! They are short and sweet, but each one is so different from the next! It’s so nice that they allow you to do the ceremony anywhere you want around the adjacent park. There are several nice spots, with different backgrounds. In this case, we chose to do the ceremony right in front of the historic Albemarle County Circuit Court, a half block from the Charlottesville Circuit Court. The red bricks and white columns…classic Charlottesville. This wedding was the beautiful coming together of two families, with 2 boys on one side and one boy on the other side. The 3 boys looked on as heartfelt vows were exchanged, with their arms around each other. This was a big day for them too - they were officially becoming 3 brothers.
I have a connection to Courthouse weddings, because my parents were married at a courthouse! My mom was wearing jeans from what I have heard! There are no pictures from their wedding, unfortunately. I would have loved to see pictures of them on that day. Just because you are doing a simple courthouse wedding, doesn’t mean you have to skip the photographer! Your kids will thank you some day! Even if you are foregoing the huge party, floral arrangements, DJ, catering, etc., that doesn’t mean you don't deserve to have photos of your ceremony and portraits just as beautiful as if you had booked that vineyard venue!
I have very reasonable special rates for courthouse weddings. Give me a call! I’d love to be there to document your big day for you! I would love to be the official Charlottesville Courthouse Wedding Photographer! In the mean time, please enjoy pictures from this charming courthouse wedding.
