I’ve photographed weddings far and wide, from California to NYC to Italy, but don’t think you need to go to one of those places to have a jawdropping wedding. Bentonville, and Northwest Arkansas, has a number of incredible wedding venues ranging from rustic to classic to elegant.
One of my favorite current elegant venues is the Ballroom at I Street in Bentonville. The location is really dreamy and is conveniently located and situated… I can’t say enough properly nice things about it.
Abby and Austin chose this venue to share their vows and dance the night away. A touching (and hilarious) ceremony gave way to a fun party–the guests never left the dance floor, thanks to Brock Entertainment.
One of my favorite moments from the wedding day (there are a TON) was when abby sprayed the bridesmaid bags (there’s probably a fancier word for this) with her perfume for an “smell memory.” How cute and clever! I love olfactory memories, and the idea to plant one on the wedding day is a genius touch.
Alright… let’s dive in to some images!
Because her girlfriends are so close with her, Abby wanted a lot of time spent with them on the wedding day. It was my honor (and frankly, my pleasure) to document all that.
Even though Especially since I got to be showered in champagne.
Congratulations, you love birds! I adore you both and I’m so excited for your marriage.
Talk to you soon,
