Timing, guests, food, drink, staff, decorations, venues, DJs, pastries, coordinators....for the couple, so many things to think about. JXC Photo photographs lots of big weddings every year -- we love it (and we're good at it!). But every once in awhile, we get to be two out of five people present for the beginning of a marriage, and it reminds us just how peaceful an elopement can be. Ashleigh and Kurt decided to be together on their own terms, with just a county judge and two photographers to witness them exchange vows and rings. Conveniently, the Douglas County Courthouse doesn't let couples in for weddings until they close for the day, so we had all of a dramatic & chilly December golden hour at nearby Daniels Park to capture the connection between these two, moments before they promised each other eternity.
Thanks so much for inviting us along, Ashleigh & Kurt.
