From the bride on how they met: “We met over four years ago when Luke was traveling to Vienna (where I’m from) for work. We couldn’t quite explain where our deep connection came from, but we immediately felt it. After he went back to Austin, we started talking every day – you get to know someone on a different level when words become your most powerful tool of connecting. Once we learned about each other’s thoughts and hopes and ideas and ideals, I knew I loved him. The time since has been filled with big challenges, life events and heartbreaks, but somehow we came out of it more loving and more assured of us wanting to walk through life together.”
