To say Emily + Luke's wedding day was an epic celebration...well that would be putting it lightly. You see, Emily and Luke are teachers that live in the Philippines. But, it hasn't always been that way - they met in Egypt, when Luke landed a job where Emily's parents were his bosses! He says he was excited about the new job, but even more excited about Emily. If you ask him - he knew he'd marry her the moment he saw her. He was head over heels for her, and I'd say that hasn't changed a bit. As time passed, they fell in love, and since then have continued their exploration of the world - but now, as they begin the school year in Manila, they're officially Mr + Mrs!
They promised to forever in the heart of Old Town Albuquerque, NM - and Casas de Suenos, with family and friends gathering from 13 countries from around the world! From Poland, to Ecuador, the Ukraine and more - people came from far and wide to celebrate two of the kindest, most loving-hearted people I've ever met, and it was incredible! Emily + Luke did such a great job incorporating their love for the world and it was clear that these two have a passion for travel, gatherings, and a whole lotta' fun - with banners made of world maps, and luggage tags as favors! From the delicious food, to the wild and fun mixture of music, and the sound of unfamiliar languages traveling through the air - the day was one I will never forget, and always hold dear to my heart! Oh, and the amazing lip-sync surprise during toasts was a "remember-forever" moment too! :) Scroll down to see what I mean!
But first - the biggest thank you, E + L!!! You two are incredible, and I am so honored to be a part of your special day and to capture your love story! What.a.wonderful.day!!!
And, a big thank you to the team who helped make this day great!
