My friend got married at the SB courthouse, and then we walked to a lunch reception at a nearby restaurant. 

First of all, the courthouse is breathtakingly beautiful! She was married in the room with the murals all over the walls. She had a very low-key ceremony, officialted by a friend. They played music from a ipod and the whole ceremony lasted maybe 15 minutes.

Having spoken to her about the courthouse, she said she had no regrets, but that there isn’t much guidance or help on the day of. She got dressed in the hallway bathroom, so there was really no privacy. And they basically just unlock the room at the time you reserved it for, and leave you alone. I think she was hoping for more help? (She should have hired a DOC) 

The garden wasn’t available to her bc they were having a pet adoption fair, so it was busy. But you couldn’t hear any of that from the mural room. And then when she took her photos outside, it was kind of fun to have people around. They certainly got a lot of attention!

Al in all, it was really lovely. I imagine that a ceremony in the garden would be outstanding! The whole town is gorgeous, and the courthouse is no exception!

Reeniero:  Hello! I saw your response and I was hoping you could answer a few questions for me. I am planning on, like your friend, wedding in the courthouse and having a reception/lunch at a near by restaurant. Do you remember the restaurants name by any chance?

rio20:  Hi! Their reception was at Wine Cask. Bc they got married on a Sunday afternoon, they were able to use the whole restaurant for a late lunch-cocktails and light bites-kind of reception. It was really lovely and low key – very “them”. 

The only stipulation was we had to be out of there by the time dinner service started, which we were.
