Lucia and Luke’s amazing love story proves that the slow flame can burn as brightly as a quick, blaze. Maybe, even more so. When Lucia first met the saucy Luke, as California transplant and former Air Force man, she was not impressed. In January, he kept talking about how amazing California weather was, which would be off putting for anyone stranded in the frozen arctic of the Midwest. But they eventually grew to be acquaintances and later casual friends. Four years later, in 2010, a single email would change their lives forever.
“Luke emailed me because he had heard I moved to Chicago and he had a friend in Chicago he thought I would be friends with. This started many 100s of emails about life and relationships. Throughout 4 years of emails and phone calls and many moves, Luke and I became the best of friends…kinda like “When Harry met Sally”. We talked about everything…even about boyfriends and girlfriends! A year ago,I went to Austin to visit Luke and while I was there, we realized we were more than just friends…and that we actually had fallen in love with each other. 4 months later, he proposed and here we are, husband and wife. Life is wild sometimes.” -Lucia
What began as a small acquaintance grew into a love that is such a joy to see! Their wedding this May was full to the brim with sweet moments, sunflowers as big and bright as the California sunshine and a cloud of loving family. Blessings on their marriage!!
