According to The Knot, the average couple now spends more than $30,000 on their wedding ($31,213 to be exact). So it's no wonder that some couples decide to opt out of having a fancy wedding entirely and go for a city hall ceremony instead.

City hall ceremonies can be just as beautiful and memorable as a big weddings. There's also something sweet and ultra-intimate about city hall nuptials, because there's usually way fewer family and friends involved. Couples can keep the special moment of their big day just between them. Just look at these eight happy couples and tell us there's not something magical about a courthouse wedding.
