North Carolina Courthouse Wedding
In the middle of planning their wedding, Chelsea and Nate had a change of heart and decided to elope to their local county courthouse. They invited more than 20 of their closest friends and family, including photographer Kat Braman, whose images captured the day beautifully.
From the bride, Chelsea: We decided early on that we weren’t interested in having a traditional wedding and since neither of us were keen on being the center of attention, a courthouse elopement seemed fitting. We wanted our day to feel spontaneous and intimate with a vintage feel to match the character of the 81 year old courthouse. From the borrowed jewelry, to the look of handpicked flowers, to the cupcake shop that we walked to after the ceremony –we wanted to create a day that felt effortless.
