When Megan contacted me about an engagement session, we connected right away – she told me this wonderful story of how she, from San Diego, and Luke, from London, met on a cruise and how they have been apart because of visa issues and how much they loved Disney. We met at Leu Gardens and the four of us had so much fun getting to know each other and talking about their beautiful Disney wedding. Which is now a Disney Cruise Wedding – which is perfect for them! We are so so excited!
Below is Megan and Luke’s Love Story, in her words:
Luke and I met February 2009 while we both were working for Princess Cruises in Australia. Luke was working as an officer on the bridge and I was working in the crew office. I actually was the one that got all of Luke’s documentation together before he embarked to begin his contract. Luke and I instantly became good friends and often talked about our goals and dreams for the future. I lived in San Diego and Luke lived just outside of London so Facebook was a huge part of how we stayed in touch with each other. It was not until September of 2013 that Luke and I would see each other again when my mom and I went to London. Luke and I had a wonderful evening in London and it really felt like no time at all had passed since we had seen each other. It was an incredible evening and one that we both hoped would never end. We made a promise to each other that we would not let four years go by again without seeing each other. Luke and I also became closer friends by supporting each other over the tragic loss of my dad and Luke’s mom to cancer. We truly believe that our angels had a big part in bringing us together! Late November I had this vivid dream that Luke and I began dating and at the end of the dream got married. A few days later I finally got the courage to message Luke and let him know that I had a crush on him and had since I had met him. To my surprise and shock, Luke felt the same way I had since we first met but never thought I would’ve felt the same way. We began dating that December and later that month Luke surprised me and flew out to see me while I was vacationing in Orlando. We had our first kiss during that trip in Walt Disney World and also said we love each other for the first time. We instantly knew that we had found our soulmates, it truly is amazing how a man that I had always seen as a good friend was truly the man of my dreams and the love of my life. On the evening of January 6th, 2014 while on vacation in Walt Disney World, Luke proposed to me while we were having dinner at Cinderella’s Royal Table. As dessert was supposed to be coming out, instead a platter came out with a glass slipper on a bed of roses, it was engraved with “Dreams Do Come True” and Luke got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! I still cannot believe how thoughtful and romantic he was, knowing I had always wanted to get engaged in Walt Disney World. Although most of our relationship has had to be spent with each of us being in a separate country, this has only made us stronger, fall more madly in love and appreciate the time we have together so much more. We truly cannot wait for our wedding to celebrate our love with our family and friends!!
