Joy Proposal Story: Emma & Evan

Joy Proposal Story: Emma & Evan

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

Evan took me to my favorite park, Galaxy Park, and bought me flowers. He had been Jimming me (reference from The Office) for a few weeks and I was convinced that we were not getting engaged until after my sister’s wedding. So, I was lounging on the park bench eating a peach and I thought Evan was being so weird, acting so nervous. So, I threw my peach pit into the bay that the park overlooks and went back to sitting down. Evan began telling me how words could never describe how much he loves me when he realized he couldn’t propose to me if I was lying down. So he began to ask me if I wanted to walk somewhere or if I wanted to look at a tree and I said, “No, I’m comfortable”. Finally, Evan says, “Hey Em, how far did you throw that peach pit?”. I literally leaped to my feet and ran to the edge to see if I could see it. When I turned around Evan was on one knee and said, “Will you marry me?”. I screamed “Are you kidding? Yes!” Then, my best friend came jumping out of a bush with a camera and taking pictures of us. I screamed for two whole minutes, cried, and danced! Evan forgot champagne glasses so we just popped the bottle and drank from the bottle while freaking out! It was the best after-work park picnic of my life!

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

Joy is an emotion and choice, it’s more than a moment of happiness. It’s making the conscious effort to choose gratefulness, peace, and sacrificial love over what you may think or want in a moment. Joy is choosing to love when it’s hard.
