Kristen & Luke went to the same high school, but didn’t connect until after they’d graduated. Kristen recalls, ‘I thought he was hot and was determined to get to know him. That summer we spent a lot of nightS staying up late and talking non-stop about countless topics. Nothing developed romantically at first – it wasn’t until I moved 50 miles away that he tried to pursue me!’
Here’s their beautiful, intimate wedding at one of our favourite resorts on the Island, Dreams Palm Beach!
Three things Kristen loves about Luke: ‘He is a big kid, he is very thoughtful/caring, and loves his family.’
Three things Luke loves about Kristen: ‘She fights for what she believes in, she’s always there by my side and pushes me to do my best.’
Kristen: ‘Let’s talk about what the proposal was not…earlier in the day we were shovelling snow and having a little fun throwing snowballs at each other. Luke called my name, and I thought this is it – he’s going to ask me to marry him….so I turned my head towards him, only to be nailed in the face with a snowball. I started to cry.’ 🙂
Luke: ‘It was relaxing and exciting. I was not nervous at all – I had no reason to be. Kristen is the One I didn’t want her to ever leave my side. I wanted her to be mine forever.’
‘So we call each other the same nicknames with the root of “bear”. So, that would be lazybear, sunshine bear, grumpybear, grizzlybear, weddingbear … etc!’
‘I love how Luke creates Scavenger Hunts for my birthdays/Valentine’s Day. He leaves clues all over the house – which I’m often too much of a ‘sleepybear’ to comprehend. At the end it’s always a great present!’
Favourite things to find in the fridge:
Kristen: ‘A nice fine cheese.’
Luke: ‘A steak ready to be grilled. Also,chocolate stout beer and…chocolate.’
‘I love how Luke is the only person who can make me laugh by picking on me and making fun of me!’
‘I’m very independent, but Luke has really shown me that I can let someone take care of me – and they will do a better job that I would alone. He has also taught me to trust – and to laugh.’
Intimate wedding dinner at the Dreams Palm Beach Italian restaurant.
We meet at sunrise for a beautiful session at the Cabeza de Toro piers… LOVE.
‘My favourite gift from Kristen has been a trip to Marco Island, Florida. It was our first trip together. Kristen had everything planned out. We had a wonderful time! It’s something I will always remember.’
Behind the scenes… I couldn’t resist!
Sexiest / most irresistible feature…
Kristen: ‘I love Luke’s eyes.’
Luke: ‘Definitely Kristen’s bootie & big heart.’
