{Courthouse & Cake Elopement} Ayren & Justin

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today marks the very first elopement to appear on Koru Wedding Style- exciting!  You won't see a Bride wearing a white wedding gown or a Bride & Groom cutting into an elaborate, five-tier wedding cake.  But you will see a whole lot of love which is what truly matters in weddings big & small.  Gabrielle Orcutt Photography shows us the small but mighty elopement:  

Ayren & Justin eloped on July 12, 2012.  Their short, intimate wedding ceremony was held at the local courthouse.  Shortly before the ceremony, Ayren's Grandma Helen convinced the Bride to follow one family tradition of hiding a $20 bill in her bra so she did not marry without money.  Not only is it good to have money tucked away, it's considered good luck!  The emotional event lasted a mere eight minutes, officiated by a close family friend, Judge Cherry.  Only Justin's sons, Ayren's Grandma & both sets of parents were present as the Bride & Groom exchanged vows.  The Bride & Groom sealed their promises with a kiss & triumphantly left the courthouse as husband & wife.  They departed for their home where a small group of family & friends had gathered to eat cake & wish the newlyweds well.  After spending time with their guests, the newlyweds were bid farewell as they left for their Hawaiian honeymoon.  A sweet, simple day for a lovely couple!     

Congratulations, Ayren & Justin!
