Joy Proposal Story: Chantale & Bryant

by Allie Grampa

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

On August 7th, 2016 we had just gotten back from celebrating a friend’s birthday in Tennessee. Bryant convinced everyone to act as if we were still celebrating our friend’s birthday at a jazz restaurant, Café 290, in Roswell, GA once we got back into town. Bryant told me that he was not going to be able to make it because he had to go into work as soon as we arrived back into town.

When we got to my house, I had got a surprise call from my now Matron of Honor, Jacquelyn. She told me she had flew in from Texas for meetings for work, and was sitting in my courtyard waiting for me!!! (I questioned Bryant about this, but he played it off just as surprised as I was.) Bryant made sure Jacquelyn got me ready for a night I would never forget.

Before I knew it, he was on one knee asking me, ” Would you marry me?”

We got to Café 290 where Jacquelyn sat me with my back to the door of the establishment. After about 15 minutes of listening to Jazz music, the lead singer comes to the microphone and says, “This one is for a very special lady.” The band starts playing “Let’s Get Married,” by Jagged Edge. I’m just enjoying the song, singing along with the song until I feel a tap on my shoulder with Bryant standing right next to me! The first thing out of my mouth was, “What are you doing here?” Before I knew it, he was on one knee asking me, ” Would you marry me?” I was crying too much to audibly say yes, but he knew what I was saying.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Definitely the food tasting has been the best part of the experience so far.

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

We try to stay as organized as possible through using Google Drive.

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

It’s such a great design and looks different than everything else that is offered. Aesthetics and functionality all in one place.   The experience is great and one that is hard to beat.


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

Enjoy the customization that Joy offers, you can truly make the website what you want it to be.  Plus the people are Joy are AMAZING and I really mean that.  They listen to their customers and make changes to improve their experiences with Joy.  It’s really easy to ask questions and someone gets back to you very quickly.  It has been a great experience using Joy and I can’t wait for my guests to start using it.

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

That means to us, that as we go through this extended journey together in life, the joy and love we have will continue to keep pushing us forward every step of the way.
