Massachusetts couple celebrated their wedding in an intimate elopement ceremony.
Courtney and Christian celebrated their wedding on a rainy Tuesday afternoon in an intimate ceremony. A new job was taking them to Austria so their wedding plans came together quickly and only their immediate families and a few friends were in attendance. Both bride and groom are avid tennis players, so the event was held at Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, where the bride used to work. Everything was tennis-themed down to the custom Nike's the couple wore. Bad weather may have kept the festivities indoors, but the couple didn’t let it darken their day.
