Meredith and Luke met on a blind date. Knowing next to nothing about each other, they met for drinks at The Beehive in Boston. Meredith describes seeing Luke for the first time as "time standing still... for a very long second, so that moment could imprint on my mind forever." After dating for just a couple of months, both knew their paths had crossed for a reason... and they weren't going to diverge.
On their first date, Luke told Meredith about his synovial sarcoma (a rare form of cancer). His treatment ended up taking a turn from how they initially thought it would go., and they faced challenges most new couples should never have to encounter. Meredith and Luke found themselves coming closer together, and those challenges only affirmed that their paths had crossed for a reason. Later that year Luke surprised Meredith with a proposal in Antigua!
The couple found their inspiration from the Art Deco era, utilizing repetitive geometric patterns, bold colors, and a mix of different metals. The Artists for Humanity was the perfect location to showcase such themes.
When asked what her favorite moment of her wedding day was, Meredith said this: "There were so so many. Toward the end of the night though, our band, Do I Do, started playing "Don't Stop Believing." Everyone was having a blast dancing and then our friends and family just sort of naturally parted into a circle and sang along while Luke and I got in the center and danced all over the place. The energy was awesome! I think generally though it was all of the little moments of laughter and love that Luke and I shared with each other and with all of our friends and family. It was just an amazing day all around."
Meredith and Luke, it was a true honor to bear witness to such a beautiful celebration of love. Thank you for entrusting me with such an important day! And thank you Tricia for doing such an awesome job second shooting with me!
