Mississippi couple Sham and Kam got engaged last New Year’s Eve, exactly one year after their first date. To pop the question, Sham rented a condo in New Orleans and invited their closest friends. There, she gave Kam “the surprise of her life,” as the couple describes it.

They are most looking forward to having a family together. As for what they love most about each other: “The grace that we give to one another to be human,” they say.
