The sun set on May 28, 2023, casting a beautiful glow over Bella Cosa Lakeside, Lake Wales, Florida. It was on this day that Amelia and Luke, two medical school classmates turned lifelong partners, pledged their love to each other in an elegant and timeless wedding ceremony.
Their love story began in the hallways of their medical school, where they were merely acquaintances during their first year. It was only in their second year that their paths truly intertwined as their friend groups started hanging out. A seemingly innocent study invitation from Luke led to an unexpected confession of feelings, catching Amelia off guard. After some gentle nudging from her family, Amelia gave Luke a chance, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fast forward to a sunset at the Don Cesar, where Luke proposed with his family in Kentucky on FaceTime, and Amelia’s family hiding nearby. She was moved to tears as Luke reached into his pocket, pulling out a ring and a promise of forever. The night was filled with joy as their families joined them for a surprise dinner, marking the beginning of their engagement journey.
For their wedding, they chose a palette of neutral colors, creating a timeless and classic vibe that reflected their personal style. Amelia wore her grandmother’s ring, featuring her great-grandmother’s diamond, as her “something old,” adding a sentimental touch to her bridal look.
Before their ceremony, they shared a private moment, reading letters to each other while standing back-to-back, preserving the tradition of not seeing each other until Amelia walked down the aisle. Amelia also shared a heartwarming prayer session with her bridesmaids before the ceremony, creating a serene and spiritual atmosphere.
Their vows were exchanged on the scenic grounds of Bella Cosa Lakeside, a stunning location known for its beauty and exclusive use. The 1925 Spanish-Italian inspired architecture, combined with the stunning lakeside view, made for a breathtaking backdrop for their ceremony and reception.
Amelia and Luke’s wedding was a beautiful blend of timeless elegance, personal touches, and family traditions. It was a day filled with love, laughter, and the promise of a lifetime together. As they embark on this new journey as a married couple, we wish them all the love and happiness in the world. Here’s to Amelia and Luke, whose love story is as timeless and classic as their wedding day.
