Our Story

Our relationship is based on honesty, respect, trust, and love. Our Story began in 2007 when we first met each other at work. We were both servers at a local Italian restaurant. After accidentally going out on a date (Luke thought they were just going to dinner as friends, Sarah perceived it differently), we instantly hit it off and have been inseparable ever since. We got engaged in 2010 on an Italian Gondola ride through New Port Harbor.

Sarah retrieved a bottle from the water that had a letter enclosed asking her to marry Luke. Fifteen months later, we got married at a local country club.

Sarah has a bachelors degree in English and a Masters degree in Education. She is currently an elementary school teacher, but one day aspires to be an Administrator.

Luke has a bachelors degree in Communications and Marketing. He is currently the Store Manager of a National retail chain. Luke’s career allows plenty of room for growth and advancement.

Meet Sarah by Luke

I fell in love with Sarah the moment we started dating. I even told my sister within the first week that I was going to marry her. Sarah has a way of bringing joy to everyone around her and is always thinking of ways to serve others. I have had the pleasure of watching Sarah graduate collage and go to grad school earning several post baccalaureate degrees, she has such a determination and focus for academic achievement. She is an excellent artist, she loves to paint with acrylic and oil paints on all different type of surfaces: her favorite thing to paint is sea creatures and ocean scenes. As a teacher, Sarah has been totally devoted to her students and has spent many long hours ensuring they receive adequate instruction both during and after class. I truly value and respect how strong she has been in dealing with many difficult situations in her life both personally and professionally, and know that her determination to do the right thing and move forward will continue to serve her well in the future. She has a heart for children, and I cannot wait to see her be a mother and be able to raise a family with her, she is so compassionate, and caring I cannot think of another person with the skill set and vision that she has. She is always up for adventure and is always supported me when I have last minute crazy plans. I know that Sarah will be an incredibly dedicated, loving, and caring mother. Sarah will support and nurture your child’s interests and ideas and will always be there to give advice or just listen and offer encouragement.

 

All about Luke Through Sarah’s Eyes

I love Luke more today than I did the day I married him. He has a way of making everyone around him smile. Luke has every quality in a man that I imagined for both a husband and a father. He is a hard-worker and good provider for his family. As a prominent individual in his company, he was recently selected as one of 50 people to attend a 5 week Leadership Academy. While there, he learned skills on how to be a expert leader, not just in a work setting, but also with his family, friends, and community. Luke knows the value of education. As a young adult, he worked multiple jobs to put himself through college. He enjoys learning and is often engulfed in the readings of Historical events or new Scientific discoveries. Luke’s kind heart is one of the main reasons that I fell in love with him. He is always the first one to go out of his way to help a relative, a friend, or a co-worker whenever they are in need. Luke is one of the most talented people that I have ever known. He enjoys working with his hands and has built several pieces of furniture in our home, including our dining room table. Luke has a wonderful gift in that he can play both the cello and the piano. It never ceases to amaze me how he can listen to a song and within minutes be playing it on the piano. I cannot wait for him to teach our child one day! Luke will be an amazing father. He is enthusiastic, fun, and always up for a new adventure. He will devote his time to teaching your child and guiding them as they grow. He will love and support them unconditionally. He will always be there to encourage them and mentor them through every phase of his/her life.

How we have fun

We are a young, fun couple that loves spending time together. Our ideal day is hanging out at home, BBQing with our friends and family, and listening to classic vinyl. On the weekends we love to go to our family’s vacation house on the central coast. While there, we enjoy going to the beach, eating at the local restaurants, and going to the historical drive-in movie theatre. It quickly has become “our happy place!”

 

Our Home and Community

We live in a charming home in a quiet community in Central California. We are located about two hours from the beach and an hour from the mountains. We purchased our home a year after we were married. It was important for us to live somewhere that we would feel comfortable raising a family. Our home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and

is at the end of a cul-de-sac. We have a private community park less than five minutes away with playing fields, walking paths, and children’s play structures.

 

Meet Olive

Olive or “Olive Rose” is our 5 year old Chihuahua Mix. Olive has a very caring personality. She genuinely loves people and gets so excited when anyone comes to visit. We have several friends and family members with kids that she enjoys playing with. We take her with us wherever we travel. She loves going to the beach and playing in the sand.
