"Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering."
—Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
"IF YOU LOOK THE RIGHT WAY, YOU CAN SEE THE WHOLE WORLD IS A GARDEN." - THE SECRET GARDEN
Luke and Tiffany met while serving in the Peace Corp in 2008. They both were English teachers in Guinea, West Africa. While there, they became really close friends. Despite travelling all over the world, they always found each other.
I love their desire to see the world and experience all of the wonderful culture it has to offer. Luke proposed to Tiffany on a trip to Cartagena, Columbia. They were enjoying a bottle of wine and watching the sun set over the ocean, when Luke proposed. Afterwards they went out for dinner and to a Cuban nightclub to celebrate.
These two wonderful people, had one of the most beautiful weddings I have witnessed. I loved adventuring through the gorgeous scenery of Jasmine Hill Gardens. Flowers were blooming and we all were surrounded by lush greenery in every direction. I love the personal touches of this sweet elopement! Tiffany MADE her gown! And, their rings were custom made to match one another.
Luke's brother Matt flew all the way from Hong Kong to watch Luke exchange vows with Tiffany. Once they were announced "husband and wife", we all cheered! They both had huge smiles across their faces. Shortly afterwards, I asked them both when they said " I love you" for first time. Tiffany looked up at Luke and told me that they've always said they loved each other, even as friends. And, that made my heart melt a little.
Congratulations to you, Luke and Tiffany! May you both have MANY adventures together!!
