I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

It’s rather unusual to see a courthouse wedding that’s as lovely as this. Though simple and affordable, Hannie and Jesse’s wedding is no less lovely and romantic. Photographer Jennifer Hogan of Ever Whim Photography tells us:

Jesse and Hanni met as peace corp volunteers on a 16 hour bus ride through rural south america and the two quickly fell in love. Hanni is a talented florist, she made her own bouquet and Jesse’s boutonniere. (You can see more from her company, Lilify, here.) Both Hanni and Jesse are talented jewelry makers as well–you can see their work here. The chairs in the field shot, usually sit in their living room, jesse’s being very special because it belonged to his grandfather.

Special thanks to Jen for sending over her gorgeous work! I’m loving this elopement!
