Luke is in the United States Navy, wrapping up basic training. Dorian is an amazing chef. As they prepare for married life, a move to another state, and deployment in Luke's very near future, they managed to find time to plan an intimate garden ceremony in the backyard home Dorian grew up in with close friends and family joining them.
A pre-wedding photo shoot took place along Wrightsville Beach at sunrise the day before the wedding....thank goodness because the weather in Wilmington NC the morning of the ceremony was like no other November day! The hail from the storm that came through was still in piles late into the afternoon...but chilly, crazy weather did not take away one bit from the love and warmth of family!
