Planning a wedding long-distance is not the easiest thing to do, especially when COVID changes your plans completely! In August, Taylor and Luke flew from Los Angeles to Chicago to wed “in global sickness and in health” (their words). Believe it or not, their Illinois country club wedding was planned in a matter of weeks! Though their big celebration is postponed to next year, Luke and Taylor were overjoyed to tie the knot on their original date.
In Global Sickness and in Health.
I met these two and their wedding party at Boulder Ridge on a perfect August afternoon. From the summery mismatched bridesmaid dresses to their custom face masks (designed by Luke!), every detail had its place! Oh – I should mention that these two share a name already… I think their hashtag #thetaylortaylorwedding gives it away 🙂
So many personalized details helped make this day unique. Luke’s childhood priest performed the ceremony, dedicating an emotional remembrance to Luke’s father. Both the church and country club are sentimental locations to Taylor, the sites of her parents and step-parents’ weddings. Taylor paid further homage to her late grandmother by walking down the aisle in her vintage dress! I can’t get over how that veil just sparkles!
In true Newlywed fashion, Luke and Taylor hopped into a sweet Corvette (something blue?) to exit the church as husband and wife. We waved goodbye for now, but don’t worry! We get to do this all again next summer.
CONGRATULATIONS, Taylors!! Can’t wait to celebrate BIG TIME next year!
