Joy Proposal Story: Christopher & Lauren

by Cali Pitchel

How did the two of you meet?

We met in college and started dating after studying together. After days of Chris working hard, Lauren thought Chris should take time to relax. She accidentally asked Chris out on a lunch date. They both weren’t sure if it was a date until the end of it when Chris kissed Lauren. After that, they agreed it was a date and Chris had to verify that they could still study together!


How long have you been together?

We cruised past 3.5 years in July 2017!

Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?

On October 9th 2016 at the Empire State Half Marathon, Chris got down on 1 knee at the finish line! The story is better seen than told!


What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Customizing event details based on our preferences. Sometimes it’s surprising to see what the other half likes, and doesn’t like!

How do you stay sane under the pressures of wedding planning?

We plan in advance and do a great job staying organized. We also understand wedding planning takes a great deal of compromise. If we’re truly stuck, Lauren tends to be right.


What is your favorite part of using Joy for your wedding?

Joy is great to use and if you ever have a question you can reach out for help.



What piece of advice would you give couples to ensure that they use Joy to its fullest potential?

Seriously figure out what works for you! What features do you want/not want?

At Joy we believe that even though a wedding lasts a day, joy lasts forever. What does that mean to you?

Cherish all of the time you have together every day, not just during your wedding day!
