For Luke, it was love at first laugh. Sophomore year of high school, Luke told a girl a joke and she didn’t laugh, but her sister Ali did. That’s when he knew he was in love.
A few months later he asked Ali out, and she said no. He didn’t give up, asking several more times, but she kept shooting him down. Finally, during Ali’s freshman year of college, he tried again, she said yes, and they’ve been together ever since. They are adorable, happy, and perfect for each other. The proposal was strait out of a Nicolas Sparks film – a secret date, a new black dress, a gondola ride on a beautiful lake, a serenade in Italian. When Luke gracefully got down on one knee, Ali laughed. She thought he was kidding because the Quilicies are never serious. When he pulled out her ring she was surprised and delighted. She said yes and he slipped it on her finger.
The wedding was so much fun, full of laughs and happiness. Their vows were unique and special. Luke listed all the reasons he loves Ali, including her smile, how she gets excited over little things, and how she laughs at his jokes. Ali promised to kill all the moths because Luke is terrified of them. (SEE! I’m NOT the only one with a moth phobia!)
Thank you Ali, Luke, and your families, for letting us be part of such a special day!
