Katie and Anand’s Spring Courthouse Elopement

Captured & submitted by Rachael Marie Photography


“We met now anyone else meets these days… dating app! Although, we met on a lesser-known app called Coffee Meets Bagel (not a swiping app!). Our connection grew over time as we got to know each other; it felt organic.”

“I never wanted to plan a big wedding. So I started planning a backyard wedding. But then—I realized I was STILL planning a wedding. And I did NOT want to plan a wedding at all. So to make it as simple as possible, we decided to say ‘I do’ at the courthouse.”

Katie and Anand met with 8 of their family members downtown this Friday to read the sweetest vows, promising to be there for each other as they journey though life continued together.

What made their day their own:

•a first look

•handwritten vows

•a rose petal exit

•a private dinner at @theluminarychefs
