Temperature: 30 degrees

Time: 9:00 AM

Location: Fayetteville, NC

Couple: Tierney & Rudy, army sweethearts

Occasion: Surprisingly romantic courthouse wedding. Given that the magistrate and jail are housed in the same building, this was a real testament to how upbeat and positive these two are.

I left the courthouse that morning feeling the same level of excitement reserved for truly special occasions. While cakes, bridesmaids in colorful dresses, fancy venues, and three course meals might be how some people throw weddings, by no means is it necessary. This right here is about as special as it gets.

Here are Tierney and Rudy on their wedding day! (Yup, we were FREEEEEZING and there was so much complaining both from me and the happy couple, but it was so worth it!)
