This keeps sitting in my queue because I can’t seem to find the words to best describe Cydney and Daniel’s courthouse elopement. Their elopement took place at Jackson County Courthouse on a Monday afternoon on their seven year anniversary. (I think?) They surrounded themselves with close friends, family, former professors, and a really awesome crepe cake. All I can say is that it was utterly, authentically “them “ which feels fairly contrived to put it as such.
I’ve only been friends with these two for a short time, but have know of Cydney for a several years. I’m not really sure when our paths first crossed, but we attended the same college and the same business seminar post grad. I photographed their sweet cat family back in December and have collaborated with Cydney (who is a kick ass porcelain artist) several times since. I still don’t know Daniel very well, but I’m sure he’s as kind and creative as his counterpart. They seem to be the type of couple that I could easily just grab a drink with. Super laid back and fun to talk to. Michael and I were even invited to their pre-wedding party. Unfortunately, Michael has a distinct fear of Funkytown so that didn’t quite work out.
All aside, I was so happy they allowed me to be a part of their day! Since courthouse weddings are no longer a thing in Jackson County I never thought I’d be able to shoot inside. You have to have an “in” to get married in the building. Cydney’s father being a lawyer allowed them to find a judge, and in turn, all the gorgeous marble was mine to capture. Muahaha! Seriously, they couldn’t have picked more beautiful locations. First the ceremony inside the courthouse and a short reception followed at a near perfectly lit art gallery. This was dream elopement status for me; these are my people.
