Luke & Haley

Submitted for the Bride’s Perspective

Describe your engagement

The bride (Haley) grew up in Granger, Indiana where her parents still reside. The groom (Luke) flew to Indiana to ask her parents for her hand in marriage, and the bride’s father took him to their local trusted jeweler to pick out her engagement ring.

Once the ring was secured (and transported across the country to California by Luke’s father!) he dropped a knee on the valley floor of Yosemite National Park. An intimate moment captured on camera by a family friend hiding in the bushes!

Describe your wedding vision

An oceanfront celebration featuring peonies, soft blues and classic elegance with a stunning view. With guests coming from all over the country, we wanted everyone to feel like it was a destination wedding within the states and the Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island did not disappoint.

Describe your wedding day

Both the Bride and Groom carried photos of their late grandparents, and the Father of the Bride opened the ceremony with a prayer and a special dedication written through the eyes of his late Father. The strings playing Dancing Queen as the Bride walked down the aisle, heartfelt hand-written vows, the Bride’s dog Ryder and the beautiful sentiments from the officiant didn’t leave one dry eye after the ceremony concluded.

Moving into dinner and dancing, the Best Man delivered an equally beautiful and hilarious speech. Cabernet Sauvignon from Jordan Winery fueled a night filled with unbelievably special memories. A day beyond our wildest dreams thanks to so many people.

Your advice to engaged couples

Your big day is of course about you and your vision – but remember, the people that love and care about you have been looking forward to this day as well. Don’t be afraid to share the excitement, be open to ideas (especially areas that you aren’t SUPER passionate about – think linens, chargers, etc.) and let the professionals do their jobs! Planning a wedding is wonderful, but it’s also very stressful. Lean on your friends, family – anyone you trust has your best interest at heart!
