Cathryn & Matt // Summer Ballroom Wedding

Cathryn & Matt got married June 15th, 2018 at the Ballroom at I Street in Bentonville, AR! We loved this venue. The outdoor portion was perfect for their summer vows, & inside the ballroom was a dream to shoot with all the clean, white space & huge chandeliers. They were surrounded by family & friends during their day full of sweet moments. I'm so happy I had the opportunity to capture the day!

Favorite moments & highlights to look for throughout this blog were the many first looks (bridesmaids, father, AND groom), plus their sweet "last dance" they shared alone in the ballroom as everyone outside prepped the sparkler exit. There was a lot of extra time scheduled into their day to slow down & enjoy the moments as they came. If you're currently planning your own wedding I definitely recommend taking a cue from how they did first looks. Even if you don't want to do a first look with your bride/groom, having first looks with your bridesmaids, father, or mother can be just as sweet & special without taking away from the surprise of walking down the aisle! I just emailed out a list of wedding day recommendations & tips like that to my 2018-2019 brides, so if you're interested in any advice from a photographer let me know! Otherwise, enjoy this highlight reel of Cathryn & Matt's summer ballroom wedding!

35mm Film // Portra 400

These film scans are all kinds of out-of-order, but I shot nearly a whole roll during the wedding day, so here they are! All shot on a Canon AE-1 by me, then developed & scanned by The Darkroom Lab in California.
