Joey would get breakfast at the cafe Sami managed on Sundays before church. Eventually he asked her on a date, and I suppose the rest is history! On a basically normal Friday, Sami had to work the dinner rush. But before she left for work she wrote Joey a love note.
"I got home from work and read the love note from her. I had just gotten permission from her parents the day before, so I wrote a reply love note for her to read when she got home. After she read the note I got down on one knee and before I could finish my proposal she was in my arms with that ring around her finger." - Joey
I couldn't be more excited for these two for so many reasons! I actually grew up with Sami, and when I finally got to meet Joey I couldn't agree more that he was the perfect match for our Sami!
When discussing where to do their engagement session, I knew the perfect place for us to go was the very lake we all used to go to growing up! And boy was it!! The spring rain couldn't stop us from getting to pause their exciting season of engagement in photographs, and I'm so glad we could!
