#WedwithCourtly: Ella and Rex

Couple exchanging rings while getting married remotely

Rexy and Ella have been together for seven years. They knew that they would get married for years, but then the pandemic derailed their plans of having a simple wedding. After much consideration and planning, they decided to take the next step in their relationship and tie the knot online. Initially, they had planned for a simple courthouse wedding, but upon discovering Courtly, they realized that this platform would be the perfect way for them to share their special day with friends and family from overseas. With Courtly, they had the intimate and low-fuss wedding they desired, while still being able to include their loved ones from afar.

Can you tell us a little bit about how you first heard about Courtly and why you decided to use our platform for your wedding?

I first heard about Courtly from a friend who recently got married using the platform. At first, my husband Rexy and I were planning for a simple and low-fuss wedding and thought that the courthouse was the best way to go. But then my friend told me about Courtly and how it allowed her to include her loved ones from all over the country in her special day. After learning more about the platform, my husband and I realized that Courtly was perfect for us. We have relatives and friends from all over the country and it would be hard for them to make it to our wedding. With Courtly, they can easily join us via Zoom and be a part of our special moment. We are so excited to use Courtly for our wedding and share it with all of our loved ones.

Can you describe the planning process for your wedding using Courtly? Was it easy and stress-free?

The planning process for our wedding using Courtly was incredibly easy and stress-free. Courtly took care of the whole process from start to finish, which made it so much easier for us. They helped us with applying for a marriage license, scheduling our wedding, hiring an officiant, and even mailing our marriage certificate after the ceremony. We didn't have to worry about a single thing, and we were able to focus on other important aspects of the wedding. Courtly's customer service was also exceptional, they were always there to answer any questions we had and guide us through the process. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and we were able to have a beautiful and intimate wedding with our loved ones from all over the country, thanks to Courtly.

How did your friends and family react to the idea of a virtual wedding? Were they able to attend and participate in the ceremony?

At first, some of our friends and family were surprised that remote weddings like ours were possible and legal. But as we explained the concept of Courtly and how it allowed us to include loved ones from all over the country in our special day, they became excited about the idea. They were able to attend and participate in the ceremony, and it was such a fun experience to share this special moment with them despite being continents away. Our loved ones were able to join us via Zoom and it felt like they were right there with us, we were able to see them, hear them and even chat with them before and after the ceremony. Overall, our friends and family were very supportive of our decision to have a virtual wedding and they were happy to be a part of it. We're grateful to have Courtly that made it all happen.

Can you tell us about your wedding day? Was it what you had envisioned and was it special to you?

Our wedding day was exactly as we had envisioned, if not better. The ceremony was intimate, low-fuss, and was held in the comfort of our own home. The officiant that Courtly provided was kind and professional, and made the ceremony special for us. The whole experience was so memorable, and we are so happy to have found Courtly. It made it possible for us to have the wedding we wanted, and we were able to share the special moment with all of our loved ones. It was the perfect day, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Courtly made our dream wedding come true, and we will always be grateful for that.

Would you recommend Courtly to other couples who are looking for a low-fuss, non-traditional wedding? Why or why not?
