Courtney + Maria

The Elopement

“Courtney and Maria met on an app, but when they think about meeting, they think about the day that they first saw each other in person. It was Maria’s first time meeting up with someone she had met online, and being a big fan of true crime podcasts was not helping with her nerves. She and Courtney had decided to go the classic date route with dinner and a movie. In this case, the movie was Happy Death Day and dinner was hot dogs and chicken tenders. Maria arrived early at the movie theater and waited for Courtney just inside the theater- nerves picking up until Courtney arrived. Maria can recall close to everything about the day she first saw Courtney because it was the day that she fell in love with her. They both felt as though they already knew each other and they both felt safe so safe with each other, even though it was their first time meeting. With this kind of amazing connection there were so many happy emotions doing into their wedding day. And while rain is something most people would rather avoid on their elopement day, but Courtney and Maria totally embraced it. Their day started with sunshine as they did their first look by a lake before heading down to their ceremony site to meet their families. The brides walked down the “aisle” at the same time to the sound of their friend’s violin. The ceremony was sweet and sentimental; they even had a moose show up as a surprise guest. As the ceremony went on dark clouds began to come in and just as we finished family photos, the rain well and truly started. Courtney and Maria didn’t complain even once- just commented that we really needed the rain (we did). Despite the torrential downpour and insane winds, it was still an amazing day. The couple ate their Ube flavored wedding cake, made by a close friend, in the back seat of the car. We talked about dogs and jobs dealing with the general public and right when we had given up on the weather- the rain totally stopped, the clouds cleared, and the mountains came out. We were all in disbelief, but it was the most beautiful evening!”
