Stephanie & Zachary’s budget-friendly courthouse and pizza wedding

This week we’re celebrating intimate weddings with destination elopements, cozy city hall vows, and private romantic ceremonies. This time, the groom wore his Class A’s and the bride wore a short white dress to their courthouse ceremony with pizza and bar-hopping as the after-party. These two wanted a mid-week ceremony catered to their style, and they definitely did it. Low budget, high fun, epic pizza.
