It’s not too often that I get lucky enough to shoot courthouse weddings. I know they are on the rise, but they’re usually 10 minutes, just the couple, and people don’t bring a photog. Thankfully, this was not the case with Ashley and Jonathon’s wedding. These two brought their families and friends, and then we got to go to the fire company where Jonathon works and shoot their couple session with FIRETRUCKS! I know, freaking firetrucks! I’m pretty sure I was just as excited about this as the couple!
We all met up at the courthouse and waited while a hearing finished up. Family and friends slowly streamed in and hugs, kisses, and smiles were exchanged by all. Who says you can’t have a fun wedding if it’s at a courthouse?? These two knew how to make this a special and intimate ceremony! The presiding judge, Judge Masland, was wonderful! Leading a quick and lovely ceremony he posed for photos, joked with the little kids, and made sure the couple had everything before we left for the firehouse!
I mean seriously, could it get any more fantastical then a couple session at a firehouse? The guys working were great too, helping turn on lights, and holding cords. Not only could you tell that these two were surrounded on their wedding day by friends and family that loved them, but also by Jonathon’s coworkers at the firehouse. These two lovebirds had so many fun ideas too, and their love and affection for each other hopefully shines through in the photos. Congrats to Ashley and Jonathon and many, many more years to come! Now check out this lovely courthouse wedding!
