A Courthouse Wedding for Cordula and Mike

There’s something very sweet about a courthouse wedding. Short, simple, and often shared with your closest family members. Cordula and Mike asked me to record moments from their special day, first with a portraiture shoot at Golden Gardens, and then their civil marriage ceremony at the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle.

The courthouse was otherwise closed for Veterans Day (11/11/11!), but we were ushered through security with a humorous patdown from the single guard, then it was up several floors to the judge’s modest chambers with a sunset view of Puget Sound and Smith Tower. With immediate family looking on, Cordula and Mike exchanged their vows. A happy wedding doesn’t need much more than that.
