Courthouse weddings can be so much fun (that’s why we feature so many of them)! When it’s just couple (and sometimes the people closest to them) everyone can relax and just enjoy the moment. Irina and Erick did just that and their elopement was even more charming because of it!
When I met Irina and Erick inside the front doors of the Multnomah County Courthouse in Portland, Oregon on January 27th, 2016, they were giddy and giggling and just as excited as could be. They had been together for 6 years, spending much of that time on the opposite sides of the world from each other and today they were finally getting married. We headed up to the courtroom where their friends and family were waiting anxiously to witness their sweet little ceremony and be part of the official beginning of their marriage. With jokes and laughter mixed in with the tears and hugs, their elopement was a true pleasure to be part of. We grabbed some fun pictures after the ceremony on their way to the restaurant, Veritable Quandary . I had a blast photographing their fun, relaxing day.
You got’ta love it when a bride where’s something other than white! Irina looks fantastic in her “something blue” dress and Erick’s tie matches perfectly!
