becky & michelle's old orange county courthouse wedding

When you think of a "courthouse wedding", you definitely do not think of this gorgeous place!!! It had that old charm that is completely irresistible. It doesn't hurt to be in the heart of Southern California!

Becky and Michelle were so intimate and romantic and I just swoon over their images! 

It was a warm (and I mean WARM), late spring day for this wedding- and when I arrived these two were hiding out in a fire escape from the heat and the chaos that is two giant families on a wedding day :) They ended up walking each other down the "aisle" and met again up front for a ceremony led by a close friend. He went on to talk about their relationship and their engagement and how they had both planned to propose to each other at the same time (without knowing it of course!)  I love a personalized ceremony, especially since I don't know much about my couples until the day of when I start asking lots and lots of questions!

We got a chance to wander around after the ceremony with the place to ourselves. The moody window light combined with their romantic vibe just really made this day. When I say I want my couples to be in their own world and to ignore me- THIS IS WHAT I WANT!!!!
