Joy Proposal Story: Christina & Mark

by Kelsey Vickers

How did the two of you meet?

We met in Columbus, OH at our first jobs out of college in a city that was new to both of us!

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

The proposal took place in Mark & Christina’s apartment on New Years Eve of 2016. Christina was working out and running errands. Within the hour she was gone, Mark and all of his friends from high school set up the apartment with roses, champagne, and a card. Oblivious to any of this, Christina returned home while Mark’s friends quickly evacuated through the back door.

“Joy means being uncontrollable happy, finding yourself smiling from ear to ear without a reason.”

Once in the apartment, she saw the display and knew something was up. She asked Mark what all of this was for. He simply replied that it was an apology for something. Naturally, Christina automatically said, “Thank you but you didn’t need to get SO MANY flowers.” Christina quickly realized after taking one look at the card what was truly going on. After the proposal finished and friends and family were called, Mark shared with her that all his friends hid their phones. The whole thing was recorded for the two of them to have as a keepsake.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Food tasting and engagement photos—both things we did on a week night that were out of the ordinary and made us enjoy each others company more than any old regular night.

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

Be sure to continue to do things with your partner that is not directly related to the wedding.

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

The interface is very user friendly. There is no backend coding that needs to be done, however, the site looks unique and different as if there is.

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

Be sure to take the time to look at all the different modules they have to offer. The site has all the configurations set up so this can be a one stop shop for your guests!
