Annapolis Courthouse Weddings

September 20, 2013

I love love courthouse weddings. And I especially love them in Annapolis, which has the most beautiful wedding chapel with big windows, surrounded by a town that has perfect portrait nooks every few feet. Here are a few from some recent Annapolis courthouse weddings.

These two have been together for 18 years and it shows in their ease together. I just loved the sunny wintry hours I got to spend with them, on a weekday, as they were married at the beautiful courthouse in Annapolis. I might be biased because I live here, but I think Annapolis is just about the best place to choose for a courthouse wedding. There is soft window light in the ceremony room, the walls are clean white, there’s hardly ever a wait, and then we step outside around the sleepy historic seaside town of Annapolis for a leisurely portrait session. I feel so privileged when I get to participate in these intimate events. Melanie and Matthias will have a larger wedding in Germany at some point, but they couldn’t wait to get married any longer and I’m so glad because look at them, and this day – it was perfect.

A few frames of a sweet courthouse wedding from a few weeks ago. I love the intimacy of courthouse weddings, just the couple and their closest family to cheer them on. I especially love that without the sometimes harried timeline of a full wedding we get lots of time to explore the town and find the best spots for portraits of just the two of them. Here are a few of my favorites.

I love courthouse weddings. ┬áJust two people and the justice of the peace keeping it simple and meaningful. I especially love when we get to wander around downtown Annapolis first, stopping for tea at 49 West, hanging out at the old post office, and the gorgeous Annapolis Collection Gallery.
