Dana and I were in the Eastern Sierra last October on vacation. We were on our way to Topaz to gamble and get married. We stopped in Bridgeport to look at the big trout at Ken’s Sporting Goods and I asked her what she thought of the Courthouse. She took one look and the rest is history. The clerk and friendly staff made our experience the best wedding day anyone could wish for. The Judge was tickled and almost in disbelief of our request. We were serious and he made room in his docket to perform our ceremony. Witnessed by some staff and one woman who just couldn't believe our choice. We are both 53 so no special fanfare was needed. We never made it to Topaz. :-)
