Annapolis Courthouse Wedding Elopement: Congratulations Amanda and Eric!

Amanda and Eric were married on an unseasonably warm December day at the Annapolis, Maryland, Courthouse. They planned an elopement-style wedding in just two weeks!

The Annapolis Courthouse is so charming and lovely. Amanda told me she looked into civil ceremonies at courthouses in Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, but neither of them had the pretty chapel atmosphere. The courthouse in Annapolis is the perfect place for an elopement because the area is beautiful and historic and the ceremony is in a private room that can seat around 20-30 guests. It also seems less rushed. Amanda and Eric had time to say their own personal vows and really enjoy the ceremony.

After the ceremony, we walked around the area.  The weather was so incredibly nice that we were able to walk all around historic Annapolis to take photos and Amanda didn’t even need her coat!

Amanda shares a wonderful proposal story, “While I was working in Africa this summer, we decided to meet in Tanzania and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. It was an amazing experience. Eric carried the ring to the summit, but with the dizzying feeling at almost 20,000 feet, and with crowds of people around, he decided to wait for a more private moment. We flew from Arusha to Zanzibar the day after reaching the summit. After spending three days scuba diving, as the sun began to set we headed back to the room to relax. Eric had champagne waiting and rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed and he popped the question. We celebrated sipping our champagne and watching the sunset in the beautiful Matemwe Beach area of Zanzibar. In similar fashion, we wanted something small and intimate for the wedding, and Annapolis could not have worked out more perfectly.”

After taking portraits by the water, we walked back up to the enchanting Reynold’s Tavern for a reception with the couple’s family and friends.
