Vernice and I are celebrating our two year wedding anniversary today. It’s hard to believe how fast time flies. We watched our wedding dvd last night for the first time in several months. We both sat their nervous as it was coming on. Vernice and I started dating 10 years ago this December, yet we still get butterflies in our stomachs when we see each other. I know that sounds silly, but I don’t think we could be happier at this point.
Having a successful marriage and putting God first is something we have to work at everyday. Working in Residence Life, I have always told roommates in order to have a successful rooming situation, they must practice respect, communication, and compromise. As it turns out, that advice works for marriages as well. My relationship with Vernice has been such a blessing. I feel like we have grown up together certainly since we were 16 but, even more so in the two years that we have been married.
Looking back two years ago today, we were so excited about our marriage together. I’ll never forget her walking down the aisle. I have never seen anyone look as beautiful as she did. So many thoughts crossed through my mind as I looked into her eyes. I thought about the conversation I had with her parents when I asked their permission. I thought about us when we were 16 years old smiling at each other with braces. I thought about our future kids and how we will shower them with love and attention. Lastly I thought if I could just not let my knees buckle, I’d be ok. She was my princess and it was time to make her a Hammett! To this day, June 9th, 2007 is the best day I have ever experienced and I say that with such joy.
It’s passion and love that drives Hammett Photography. We are wedding photographers because simply put, we love marriage and everything about that special day where two individuals commit to spend the rest of their lives together. One thing that makes us unique as photographers is being newlyweds ourselves. We love weddings and we hope that our passion is able to shine through our photographs.
Mihal kita Vernice. You are my everything and I feel so blessed to be able to share our lives together.
