The Saga of the Big, Orange Balloon Madison and Chris did their bridal session together before their modern, stylish wedding at the Salt Lake LDS Temple and reception at Pierpont Place in downtown Salt Lake City. Madison wanted a big, orange balloon in her bridal portraits. Madison's mom brought one big, orange balloon, and one big, white balloon along. As Madison and I began shooting her bridal portraits at the historical white barn in Park City, Madison's mom was getting something from the car. We looked into the distance and we saw a lovely balloon floating away, against the bright blue sky. Madison was crushed and so was her mom, but we still had the white balloon.
As we tromped through the grassy field for photos with the white balloon, and before we could get any photos, we heard a terrible sound--POP! Balloon number two was a gone-er. The balloon had met its match in the tall, sharp grasses. Now, Madison and her mom were really sad. Madison was determined to have an orange balloon in her bridal portraits. She called her sister, who traveled all the way from Salt Lake City to Park City with yet another orange balloon. As the sun dropped behind the mountains, she arrived with that balloon. Madison sat in the grass with the balloon for a few photos, and then, we were going to take a few with Chris, too. You can guess what happened next.
I guess it wasn't meant to be. We had a great time, though, and got some really great photos. Who needs a big balloon when there are random bathtubs just lying around?
