Amber Alyse Vallotton and Luke Aaron Rond were married June 19, 2010, at Grace Church in Tracy by the bride’s father, David Vallotton. They recently celebrated their first anniversary.

The couple grew up in Tracy and met at Grace Church in sixth grade.

The bride was home-schooled and earned her diploma in 2006, graduating from Biola University with a degree in communications disorders in 2010. She works with special-needs children as a paraprofessional at ACCEL School.

Amber is the daughter of David and Amy Vallotton of Tracy; granddaughter of Hollis Vallotton of Redding and Roger and Linda La Presle of Manteca; and sister of Genevieve Vallotton, Tessa Vallotton and Blake Vallotton, all of Tracy.

The groom was also home-schooled until high school, graduating from Tracy High School in 2006. He earned a degree in biomedical engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, in 2010 and is studying toward a doctorate in osteopathic medicine at Midwestern University.

Luke is the son of Darryl and Debbee Rond of Tracy and the grandson of Dirce Rond of Stockton and Alvin Rierson of Clackamas, Ore. His siblings are Frances Rond of Dixon, Thomas Rond of Lincoln, Jesse Rond of the U.S. Navy and Danielle Rond of Tracy.

Amber’s sisters, Genevieve and Tessa, were her maids of honor, and her bridesmaids were Devin Nicholson of Tracy, Heather Guy of Fullerton, Kim Compeau of Monterey and the groom’s sisters, Frances and Danielle.

Luke’s brothers, Thomas and Jesse, stood beside him as best men. His groomsmen were Joshua Tunquist of Valley Springs, Ben Burchett and Aaron Perez, both of Tracy, Steven Clayton of Bakersfield, and the bride’s brother, Blake.

The couple traveled throughout Northern California and visited Newport, Ore., for their honeymoon. They are at home together in Glendale, Ariz.
