I love all my couples, but Kami and Michael have been extra special. On the day of their engagement session, we actually previewed our current house, and since the move, attending our church, and just clicking with the two of them, we’ve been blessed to get to know them over the past few months. We (my family and I) LOVE these two! There were so many sweet moments from their day. A few of my favorite parts of the day included, seeing Kami read Michael’s hand written note to her before the wedding, and of course, the first look. (those are always my favorites)
Kami’s mom and dad are such sweet people. I should have took a behind the scenes shot of Mike on a ladder with the tree clippers for this shot! lol. Thanks Mike! I love how the shots turned out! 😉
Michael chose a few perfect gifts for Kami, including a new pair of running shoes and a sweet personal gift documenting special places they’d been throughout their relationship. Nothing kills time like a good ole fashioned hangman game.
“I LOVED MICHAEL, EVEN FROM THE START. HE WAS SO PATIENT WITH ME, AND HE JUST CONTINUED TO PURSUE ME, EVEN WHEN I WAS SO DIFFICULT. I’VE BEEN STRESSED MY WHOLE LIFE AND THEN I MET MICHAEL, AND ALL THE SUDDEN HE HELPED CALM MY STRESS…AND I’M LIKE “WHAT IN THE WORLD? I MET A BOY AND HE HELPED CALM MY STRESS! MOM, I THINK HE’S THE ONE!”” -KAMI
“KAMI IS ALWAYS THE JOY OF THE ROOM. ANYTIME SHE WALKS IN, NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON, YOU CAN FEEL THE ENERGY CHANGE….I ALWAYS HAD THIS DREAM GIRL IN MY MIND AND I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT SHE WAS POSSIBLE, BUT SHE KEPT CHECKING OFF THE BOXES ON MY CHECKLIST, AND HERE WE ARE THREE YEARS LATER” – MICHAEL
Kami has such a special bond with her parents. I loved the gifts she chose for them. I’ll never forget that Kami described her dad as one of her best friends when I first met her. That just stuck with me. I love the bond between these two. Look at these adorable littles! When Kami and Michael told me how many attendants they were having I admit I was a little worried. However, these guys ROCKED!!! One of the largest, but easiest group of friends I’ve ever worked with.
Michael is a former basketball star on the Greenville (now University) College team, so I thought it was fitting that we do lineup run through for the new Mr. and Mrs. Hohm before heading into the reception! The wedding party was changing “Hohm! Hohm! Hohm! Hohm!” Love it!!!
K + M,
So much JOY came from your wedding day! I loved being a part of your wedding day, but I’m most excited about journeying with you AFTER the wedding. It’s not something I get the privilege of doing. I pray that the Lord will bless your marriage and continue to guide you as you pursue Him together.
“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” Song of Solomon 6:3
Love you guys!
