Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
We were on a couple’s trip with my best friend and her husband on Maui. Lincoln planned an extravagant dinner along with the help of our friends. We got dressed up and headed to dinner. When we arrived, Lincoln said he had to use the bathroom and ran inside. Our friends and I stayed outside to take pictures. We headed inside and the hostess took us to our table. We had the best table overlooking the ocean and the entire area was lit up with candles and string lights. As we approached the table, I saw Lincoln standing near the table and he asked me to come to him. I asked him what he was doing and he then got down on one knee and said, “I’m tired of you being my girlfriend so I’d like to make you my wife. Will you marry me?” I was so shocked but of course, I screeched “Yessss!” Everyone cheered and we toasted with champagne and ate delicious food. It was magical.
What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?
My favorite experience has been looking at Pinterest posts and choosing decor.
How do you stay sane under the pressures of wedding planning?
Happy hour and prayer!
What is your favorite part of using Joy for your wedding?
I love that guests can upload photos on our big day using Joy! I also love the labels that allow me to organize guests by categories.
What piece of advice would you give couples to ensure that they use Joy to its fullest potential?
Use all of the features Joy offers! For example, announcements can be made before the big day such as turning off cell phones when the ceremony begins.
At Joy we believe that even though a wedding lasts a day, joy lasts forever. What does that mean to you?
My fiancé and I often discuss how we are more excited about our marriage, rather than our wedding. A wedding is a celebration of love with family and friends but the marriage is what should be celebrated, it’s the most important part. Two people who make a conscious choice to come together and become one. The wedding will be an exhilarating experience but soon it will fade when we get into your daily routines, but the joyous part is our love and that will last forever.
