“Luke and I went to high school together. He was a grade older than me but we never talked to each other. He worked at a local golf course with my stepdad and would occasionally come over to watch football.
I wanted to get to know him (and he wanted to get to know me)
but we still didn’t talk to each other for a while.
My little sister sat between us one evening and we bonded over a Highlights magazine! He got my phone number and a couple days later he texted me
and asked me on a date. ”
“Our first date was probably the best and most genuine and unique date ever.
He picked me up in his pickup truck and asked if I had ever seen “Dazed and Confused”. I said I had not and he said okay and continued driving.
I thought we were going back to his house(which is to the left when you get to the end of my road) to watch the movie but he turned right instead.
We ended up in a field, and we watched “Dazed and Confused”
on the bed of his pickup in lawn chairs from his laptop.
Afterwards we laid on a blanket and looked at the stars for a couple of hours.”
“We dated for a little over two years.
Luke asked if I wanted to go to a state park in Guntersville with him, his brother, and is sister-in-law to hike and so his brother could take some nature pictures.
We hiked around for a while then Luke wanted his brother to take a picture of us on some rocks. I really didn’t want to because I was definitely not picture ready
but I went along with it and got a couple pictures.
Then he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him!
I was very surprised and I know I chuckled a few times.
My ring was beautiful, and I couldn’t wait to plan our wedding and the rest of our life!”

“My favorite part of our wedding was seeing Amber in her wedding dress.
She looked stunning and made me feel very lucky!
Also, I was very happy that everything went as well as it had.
And my groom’s cake was awesome!”
– Luke Ray
“Our wedding was perfect in every way!
I think my favorite part was getting to spend a couple minutes together
after the ceremony was over. I also really loved our decorations.
Almost everything we used was borrowed or handmade!
Everything was spectacular!”
– Amber Ray
“Luke has so many great attributes! I love that he’s always trying.
He wants to make me smile in every situation.
He’s a very genuine man and he’s very kindhearted.”
– Amber Ray
“I find Amber just amazing all around!
One simple answer to “What do I love about Amber?” is: Everything!”
– Luke Ray
