Morgan and Tony’s wishes for a courthouse wedding came true when they said “I do” at the Old Pima County Courthouse in Tucson, Arizona. Besides being architecturally stunning, the iconic building allowed them to have enough space to invite more people while still having the courthouse wedding they always dreamed of. Monica Mae Photography captured every moment from Morgan and Tony’s big day, starting with their private first look before the ceremony. The couple kept their planning as low-key as possible, waiting till a week before the wedding to choose a cake. They ended up with small Tres Leches cakes, decorated with fresh cut roses, for each individual table at the reception.

Old Pima County Courthouse, Tucson, Arizona
Aside from the first kiss as husband and wife, which was quickly followed by the realization we’d forgotten to exchange rings, the most memorable part of the day was hearing the speeches made by our closest friends surrounded by our guests. It was this moment of “This is it! This is what it’s all about.” We felt so loved.
As soon as we got engaged, we knew exactly who we’d ask to be our officiant. Carol is warm, wise and knows us so well. It felt so right having her be such a big part of the wedding. We also wanted to do something special with our grandmothers, so we asked them to be our witnesses. It’s so nice to look at our marriage certificate and see their signatures.
We knew immediately we wanted a courthouse wedding. After making a few phone calls, we were able to get permission to be married in the courtyard of the Old Pima County Court House, which is one of the most iconic buildings in our beloved Tucson. Besides being architecturally stunning, it allowed us enough space to invite more people while still having the courthouse wedding we dreamed of.
We were so low key about planning that we decided on our cake 10 days before the wedding! Rather than having a cake with multiple tiers, we had one small cake brought to each table. The cake was from a tiny shop in the Mercado San Augustine called Dolce Pastello – it was a traditional Tres Leches cake that was decorated with fresh cut roses.
