Steph and Luke

Chicago, IL, United States

Luke and I became friends through my brother almost six years ago, and after hanging out a few times, I knew he was someone special. We started dating and it's been nothing but love. We definitely had our ups and downs, but he was the only one I'd want to be with even on the worst days. Luke is the kindest, funniest, most loving person to me, and he is so intentional to show me he loves me every day. I found my Hayley Paige Behati gown and the first time I tried it on, I kind of knew it was "me". The unique design was absolutely perfect, and it gave me the confidence on my wedding day to help celebrate our love. When we were planning our wedding, I was busy with work and working on my doctorate, but he was so helpful during the whole planning process, trying to help in every and any way he could. He always had my back during all the stressful wedding planning meetings, and he always put in the extra effort of decision making (when I did and did not want his opinion). Our wedding was the most special, beautiful, and "us" day. There were inevitable hiccups here and there, but we were so honored and blessed to be able to celebrate with some of our closest family and friends. We didn't do a first look because we both wanted to be more traditional and have our first look be when my dad walked down the aisle, and Luke crying when he saw me is something I will always cherish (he's not very emotional). Our ceremony was officiated by one of our good friends, and our entire bridal party consisted of family and friends that are near and dear to us. Our reception was so much fun with our introduction in as Mr and Mrs was with us doing a little basketball routine followed by our handshake. It was a hit! Lots of great food, dancing, and desserts later - and it has been bliss since then.
