Pittsburgh Courthouse Elopement : Christy+Zach

Sometimes life throws you a curveball. 2020 was the ultimate curveball for many couples.

Some decided to wait and postpone, but for Christy and Zach they didn’t want to wait any longer to say I do.

So they switched gears and decided to head down to the Pittsburgh courthouse and get married with just their parents as guests. They were able to enjoy the day with them (and their adorable dog) in the city they love!

Check out their photos and some Q& A with the couple below.

Q: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.

A: We met at a coffee shop during one of ours open mic nights. My husband plays the guitar and writes his own songs. He was performing when I saw him, and a mutual friend of ours introduced us as soon as he got off stage. 5 years later he proposed to me in that same coffee shop. He had rented out the Steve and had candles lit on every table and had one of our favorite songs playing on the over head. It was beautiful!
Q: Tell us about your wedding day! 
A: We had to make some changes to our wedding this year due to the pandemic. We postponed our larger celebration to the following year, and decided to elope at the courthouse with just our parents to watch and witness. It was incredibly intimate, and wonderful
 We just kept it simple and brought our parents back to our place for cheese, wine and takeout!

Q: What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding?

A: My favorite part was how intimate it all was! I truly felt like it was just Zach and I really getting to enjoy our day together

Q: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?

A: Enjoy your day, enjoy the planning of it, but if it ever becomes too stressful for you, then either nix what it is that’s causing so much stress or try to simplify it. This Pandemic made me realize that I wanted to be able to enjoy my wedding, and my mental health wasn’t worth sacrificing just to try to have the wedding we were planning on having before.
