The last time I was in Las Vegas over the summer we avoided the outdoors like the plague. With temperatures reaching well over a hundred every single day, most people darted quickly between the casinos in a desperate attempt to stay cool.
Who would have thought I would later find myself lying on a rock in a Las Vegas canyon in the middle of August?
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Bryan and I celebrated our tenth anniversary in Las Vegas this year.
For a fun treat, my good friend Emily, a Las Vegas wedding photographer, took us out to Red Rock Canyon and treated us to some of her amazing photography skills. Temperatures were record high (106 °F the day we went out!), so we actually got up super early in the morning to do this "trash the wedding dress" shoot.
Yes, I actually lugged my original wedding dress all the way to Vegas for this. Am I nuts?
The trip was super fun. On top of hiking through some stunning natural landscapes right outside of Las Vegas, Bryan and I also enjoyed a ton of fantastic food to commemorate this milestone anniversary.
Here's a sneak preview of upcoming posts, along with a few more "trash the wedding dress" photos . . . Can you guess where I went?
