Jackie and Reece Eloped at the stunning St. Louis County Courthouse. I always like to make a point for all my couples to know that a courthouse elopement is just as special and magical as a larger more traditional wedding. The freedom Reece and Jackie had to move freely on their wedding day was wonderful. Leading to some more exciting unplanned visits. The couple got ready together at Salyards Mansion. A stunning BnB located in the Congdon neighborhood in Duluth. Then made their way to the Courthouse to make it official. Climbed up the stunning old building to go to their courthouse room and meet their judge.
Every courthouse wedding I've photographed the judges do an outstanding job officiating such an event. Adding in wisdom, and sentimental bits, and making it a thoughtful ceremony. The witnesses signed the license and the couple is officially married once the certificate is sent out.
After the ceremony, Jackie was craving some ice cream. We headed to the best ice cream shop in Duluth, Love Creamery, to cure the craving and celebrate. The shop was delighted to treat the newlyweds to the best ice cream of their lives.
After the amazing ice cream, we drove over to Brighton Beach to get photos along the stunning rocky shore. Once photos and some rock throwing finished up the couple went off to their dinner reservation.
Eloping in Duluth you can really get an amazing experience. With such a beautiful backdrop like Duluth, you can't really go wrong in having the most perfect elopement day.
