Josh and Janae’s Norfolk Courthouse Elopement

Josh and Janae’s day was filled with family, love and a few very special wedding luck charms. It was a chilly January day but that didn’t keep this bride from rocking her beautiful dress and smiling all afternoon. I am so excited to share Josh and Janae’s Norfolk Courthouse elopement portraits with you! But first, hop over to my article How to Elope in Norfolk Virginia . There you’ll find all the details on how to obtain your marriage license, who can perform your ceremony outside of the courthouse, and even where to park. I wasn’t joking, I got you! Because let’s be real, the city website isn’t the most informative.

Janae and Josh met in San Diego over 4 years ago! Janae’s brother in law invited his high school friend Josh over for Thanksgiving. The next day Janae and Josh went on their first date and became an “us”! Josh proposed on Christmas day. He stuffed Janae’s stocking with a little black box that actually had emerald earrings in it! As Janae was putting on the earrings, Josh got down on one knee and popped the question. Because Josh was being deployed they couple planned the official wedding now and a big party later!

Wedding Luck Charms

Janae brought her wedding luck charms with her on the big day. Around her bouquet, she carried her grandmother’s rosary for something old. She wore the emerald earrings she received on Christmas for something new, and her sister’s diamond wedding headpiece as something borrowed. As for something blue, Janae crushed it with gorgeous blue shoes that popped with her white dress!
