The Tiny Heart: Ironic

Ironic

I have a little update on the neighbor that abused his dog. According to the local paper, he was in fact arrested. He's being charged with one count of animal abuse (one count doesn't seem like enough though). The article doesn't mention anything about the dog being placed in a shelter but I'm keeping at eye out on Petfinder.

The hubs and I were supposed to do our wedding photos on this very bridge. I just loved the idea of doing our First Look by meeting each other in the middle of it. However, things did not go as planned. They were calling for rain on our wedding day and we had to arrange an alternate photo location. Just as we were pulling up to do the blog photo shoot, a bride and her entire wedding party were posing on the other bridge that runs across this lake. On a sunny, warm, beautiful day. Ironic. 

There were quite a bunch of onlookers at the lake, including an entire boyscout troop that seemed to be having their Saturday troop meeting there so they could fish. I was also fending off a swarm of bumblebees as I posed for the photos. So, part of me is glad we didn't do our wedding photos here. Beestings and boyscouts don't exactly scream bridal.

  8. I'm OBSESSED with this dress. It looks fabulous on you and I must have it! This bridge is beautiful - you know what they say though about rain on your wedding day. It rained on ours too - I guess we will both be happily married for the rest of our lives!

    That is a really lovely bridge, but bees and boy scouts aren't exactly what you'd want around for your first look :)

    1. Thanks Angela! A local college campus was actually where we wound up doing our First Look, haha. We chose it because they had a indoor area where we could've done the photos in case it poured.

  15. What an adorable dress! Super cute!

    I totally wimped out on outdoor photos on my wedding day because it was blasted hot. And I hate being hot!

    Glad that jerk got arrested for hurting his dog - and I hope the dog gets to go to a good home!

  19. good! people who abuse animals shoe be locked up! poor dog... thanks for the update, sharon.

    I LOVE THIS DRESS! everything about this dress flatters you, sharon! this is the perfect dress for petite people like you and me... love the empire waistline, and the skirt has just the right amount of poof. i'm a huge clutch girl, and you finished off the look perfectly with it. :) btw, your arms are sooo toned! thanks for motivating me to get on the treadmill ( i was going to skip it, until i saw your arms....) :D
    enjoy your day, sharon!

    1. Thanks Jasmine! You're so sweet for saying my arms are toned. I hardly ever work out so I have no idea why they'd look toned. Maybe from holding the blow dryer? :)

  20. This is such a darling dress! I love the color blocking and paired with those classy black heels, you look so polished and put together. The dress would be so fun with a bright bag or statement necklace too! I still can't believe your neighbor. That's just terrible. I am glad they got him taken care of. Also, love the photo location!

  23. Aw! Bummer that it didn't turn out as planned, but I do love how THESE blog photos turned out! You are very brave to take on young boys and bees for them! Worth it to showcase this cute little black and blue number! Cute clutch too!

    PS-I had an ironic moment yesterday. I was behind a Ford Focus who didn't notice the light had turned green twice in one stretch of road. Aren't Ford Focus owners supposed to, you know, focus?????

  32. This is such a cool bridge, I can see why you would want to have your wedding pictures on it! (the contrast of the weathered wood and a beautiful wedding dress, ohhh, that would be pretty. It's awful when the weather doesn't cooperate.)
    This dress really looks fantastic on you, you have such a teeny-tiny waist! I like the mix of the different size stripes on the dress and those sleek black pumps really pull the whole look together.

  34. What a pretty place for wedding photos! It's too bad you couldn't have taken them there, but at least you avoided some painful bee stings on your wedding day!
    Thanks for the update on your neighbor. While I agree that one count of animal abuse doesn't seem like nearly enough, at least he's getting something and hopefully (hopefully!) it'll deter him from ever doing it again.

    In other news, you look BEAUTIFUL in this dress! I love the whole outfit; simply gorgeous!

  44. That is really ironic that on the same day you return for blog photos a wedding party is there as well! It certainly is a gorgeous location to photograph but I agree....boyscouts and bees are just not romantic.

    1. I think it's a pretty popular place for photos but it's not as popular as the beach so I was still a bit surprised to see the wedding party there!

  45. Haha! Sometimes I'll pass places that I wanted to get engagement or wedding photos at, and see something gross going on or realize it doesn't do as well in the lighting, etc. No bees though. They're the devil.
