Charmed by Elkins

I am from out of town. I came to Elkins with my (now) wife to marry at the courthouse. Neither of us had any knowledge of what a courthouse wedding was. We thought that it may be like buying a dog tag.

It is not. Not in Elkins. Not in Judge Lori Haynes’ office. Far from it. What a kind, thoughtful, friendly, moving experience it was. How meaningful, memorable, riveting the service was.

We dined locally, roamed your streets a while and left for a short honeymoon.

I know that there are destination weddings that cost tens of thousands of dollars. If those folks have one half the great experience in Hawaii that we had in Elkins, they are very lucky people.

Just wanted to say thanks.
