"Growing up alongside Luke Blanock has been a crazy ride, to say the least. So was I surprised when he told us a month ago that he was getting hitched? Not really," said Haley Graham, a friend of the couple, in an Instagram post. "When we were little, Luke was my board game partner. As we got older, he was my comic relief. And recently, he's been the voice reminding me that we would all be okay. So if you would have told me two years ago that a beautiful, strong, and incredible girl would make him a more incredible man than he already was, I wouldn't have believed you. But here we are, celebrating the love that these two have found so much strength, fun, and joy in.
In order to pull the wedding together so quickly, many community members donated both their time and services. What the supportive community gave them in the end was a beautiful 200-person ceremony the couple could cherish forever.
"They deserve the world and the community really pulled together to give that to them," said Ashley Cyprowski, their wedding planner. "We had so many reach out to donate their time and services. We could not have planned this special day from start to finish in a month without the kindness and generosity from our local vendors. I cannot thank them enough for making this day truly memorable for Natalie and Luke!"
