Joy Proposal Story: Albert & Etta

by Kelsey Vickers

How did the two of you meet?

We met on the dating app, Tinder.

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

Albert proposed just before Valentine’s Day of 2016. We had just declared our love to each other and had talked about getting married in the days before. I came into the kitchen and Albert had a twist-tie from the bread bag. He got down on one knee, told me I was his core, his true love, and asked if I would do him the honor of being his wife. I said yes, of course! He then tied the bread tie around my wedding finger. I wore it to work that day (I was working as a waitress) and told all my regulars I was engaged, proudly showing off my bread tie.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Connecting with people I have not seen or talked to in too long! Old friends and family, even my older sister.

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

We are keeping it simple- our wedding will be at a park near our home, and it is a potluck! We are excited to have the people who love us to help create this party.

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

Your wedding is the day you and your fiancé gather with all of the people who love you. You stand in front of them and vow to do your absolute best for each other. It is the day your community witnesses your commitment and agrees to help support you in your quest to hold each other up. It’s the day you can look back on as—if not the actual beginning—a pivotal moment in who you are as a couple, and as a family.
