Engagement Picture Bust

If you've followed my blog for awhile now, you'll remember my wedding day nightmares that I suffered quite frequently during the summer.
Sounds so cheesy, but I really did.

Well, we've hit a bump in the road.
But this time, it's not a dream.
I wish it was.

Throughout our engagement, I dreamed of having our engagement pictures taken on this beautiful piece of land behind Cody's parents house.

Rolling hills. Gravel road. Adorable barns. Horses.
Beautiful fall trees, and falling leaves.
The whole nine yards.

I had it all planned out.
What kind of pictures I wanted.
What they would look like.

Too bad we waited to ask the land owners 18 days before our scheduled pictures.
Because they gave us a BIG, FAT NO.

I guess I shouldn't have assumed.
Stupid on my part.
I honeslty didn't think it would be a big deal.

So now we're scrambling.
Trying to figure out where our pictures are going to be.
My vision may have to change.

I'm completely bummed.
And a little embarassed.
Embarrassed that I assumed I could just walk onto someone's property, and they would have no problem with us taking pictures.

I don't understand why, or what the big deal is.
But I have no choice, but to accept their choice.

Wish us luck in finding a new engagement picture spot.
Cue the engagement picture nightmares!


  1. I can't believe they said no! I'm so sorry, but I'm sure you'll find the perfect place for your perfect pictures!

  2. That's crap! They shouldn't have pretty land if there not going to allow people to enjoy it, right? LOL...I'm sure it will all work out!

  3. That's such a bummer! But keep your head up! Maybe this means you'll find somewhere even better! No matter what, your pictures will be gorgeous!!!

  4. Ugh how annoying!! You can always use my Mamaws or maybe even the barn if I call and get permission!

  5. They said no?! Boo to them!! Look at it this way at least you have 18 days to choose a new location!

  6. oh gosh girlie..i'm sorry! what a bummer. i probably would've assumed the same. oh well. sometimes God's rejection is His protection! even if we don't understand why. i bet your new spot is going to be even better!!!
