It all started at FFA camp, freshman year in high school. Their schools took the same bus to camp, and that was where they first met. It was 5 years later before they had their first date. From there, the future started to become more and more clear. About 2 years into the relationship, they both knew they were meant for each other. 3 years, several dates, honey-do's, and intense situations into the relationship, Luke finally realized that there was just no way he could let Tiffany slip through his fingers. He planned out a romantic evening of a special dinner and a trip to the Christmas lights at the zoo, as well as a sentimental "speech" in which he would spill his heart to the woman he loves, then follow up with the proposal. It all went as planned.... until the time for the big question. Everything he had thought up to say was gone. None of it seemed to be enough to express exactly how he felt. He still managed to make it to one knee and asked that all important question that every woman wishes to hear, "Will you marry me?" Thankfully she could understand him through his shaky voice and said "About time."
This couple really enjoys hunting and you can see this passion through out their wedding day. Inside their matching wedding bands is engraved "Love you deerly 11-25-17". Tiffany wore a Oleg Cassini lace gown with pockets (my fave!) from David's Bridal, a cathedral length veil, and cute ankle boots. Her garters were camo with deer charms to tie in with her groom's white camo vest. Her bouquet was a variety of white, blue and teal flowers. Luke wore a gray suit, black shirt, white tie, and white camo vest. He had the coolest gray and black boots and his boutonniere included a bullet casing.
the first look
Luke and Tiffany decided on a first look, so after getting ready at her parent's home we headed to the pretty Kendrick's Woods park. I adore first looks! I love seeing their reaction to each other and then watching them check each other out <3
Following in the footsteps of many of Tiffany's relatives the two got married in the gorgeous St. John's Catholic Church in Delphos. Tiffany's grand cathedral veil was perfect in this stunning church!
the bridal party
The couple had a massive bridal party including 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, 4 mini brides, and one mini groom! The ladies wore shades of teal, blue, and tan and the guys wore gray suits with camo vests, shot gun shell boutonnieres (and a little surprise under their shirts lol)
mr + mrs
For the bridal portraits we started after the first look at Kendrick's Woods where the sun peeked beautifully through the trees. After the ceremony we returned to Tiffany's parents house to do a couple fun pictures with a fur and feathered hat, and include Tiffany's pride and joy, her truck :)
The night finished up at the American Legion in Fort Jennings where their love of hunting could be seen through out the hall. After cake, toasts, and a delicious dinner provided by Tiffany's dad and Dick's Steakhouse, the guest danced the night away on the dance floor!
The couple took an AMAZING trip to Ireland for their honeymoon! I am so happy for these two and am honored to have been able to spend their wedding day with them <3 <3 <3
