Where to begin.
This wedding was an incredible experience for me.
Myself, Willa (my newborn baby), Bethany (my best friend) and my dad (also my business manager) flew to Chicago to start this trip. I had a fashion shoot in Chicago and we explored the city for 2 days it was amazing. My new favorite city!
From there we drove to Nauvoo for the wedding. It was the most gorgeous temple. And the history there is just amazing. They had a little luncheon in an old old home that was so cool! It had a super beautiful and freaky cellar under the house that we got some rad shots in.
Then right after the luncheon we drove all night to Bentonville, Arkansas for their reception that evening! Bentonville, Arkansas is where Walmart started! So we stopped to see the very first tiny Walmart on the old main street there haha. Sam Walton who started Walmart had a daughter who used her money to build a billion dollar art gallery. Yes billion dollar art gallery. And ‘ where the reception was held. It was the most amazing building I have ever seen. The art there is unbelievable!! I almost cried when I was walking through the galleries, some of the pieces are so famous and old and everything is an original. And if any of you know me I have been into art since I was 2 years old. Art has been a part of my life long before photography ever was. I wish we were allowed to photograph the artwork area so you could all see.
Anyways, It was quite the trip, especially with a new baby who was still nursing! hence why I brought people to help! But It was so worth it, I love seeing things outside my little bubble here in Utah.
