Farm Engagement Session | Nick+Sarah | Hope, KS
Nick and Sarah’s farm engagement session took place at their farm in Hope, Kansas last week and I loved how many unique props they wanted to include! Their farm engagement props included a 1949 Chevrolet 6100 5-window pick-up that Nick rebuilt himself, a 1941 John Deere Model B Tractor, a wooden sign with Nick’s last name and a banner with their wedding date on it!
Nick and Sarah’s love story is one I adore as it began when they were in high school! It all started the summer before Sarah’s senior year in high school (Nick’s junior year). She was with some friends from school and they were going to the Abilene Rodeo where they were meeting up with another group of friends. They all sat together as a group; meanwhile Nick and Sarah didn’t know each other at the time. They eventually starting talking at the rodeo and joined everyone for a quick bite to eat at McDonald’s after the rodeo. It was there that they exchanged numbers before leaving to go home. They kept talking and getting to know each other and officially started dating on August 16th, 2007!
Fast forward 8 1/2 years to February 13th, 2016. Nick had been hiding her engagement ring for FOUR months by now! How he kept it a secret that long certainly amazes me! Their engagement weekend started out as a surprise getaway weekend to Kansas City, just the two of them. Sarah thought he had planned the weekend to just get away and relax, but little did she know, he was going to make it a weekend that she would never forget! Nick rented a room at the Chateau Avalon, then they spent all day shopping and finished with Nick taking her to the “best place she has ever eaten”, The Hereford House. After all of that they enjoyed a nice evening drive around Kansas City. When they arrived back at the hotel, she turned around and he was down on one knee, asking her to marry him! She was so surprised and shocked that she forgot to answer, then started crying and hugging him while he was still on one knee. Nick had to ask, “So is that a yes”? She was a crying mess, but without a doubt said, “YES”!
