The word for 'love' is _melme_.
'Luck' was _valto_ only in the earliest version of Qenya from 1910s.
Later Tolkien decided that the word _Valar_ meant 'the powerful ones'
rather than 'the happy ones', so the root _val_ changed meaning to 'power'.
The later word for 'happines, good fortune' is _almie_ or _almáre_,
so our best bet for 'love and luck' is
_melme ar almie_,
which also has a nice sound to it!
