Joy Proposal Story: Gillian & Sepehr

by Kelsey Vickers
Joy Proposal Story: Gillian & Sepehr

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

Sepehr, thoughtful as ever, planned to propose in Porto, Portugal in the beautiful Livreria Lello. I had discovered this on Pinterest to be essentially the real-life version of the breathtaking library in “Beauty and the Beast” (and therefore a place I thoroughly wanted to be). This plan was sadly foiled by a veritable crush of fellow visitors (magically absent in all the Pinterest photos), which prevented Sepehr from safely being able to get down on one knee. Fortunately, Sepehr rallied with an equally fabulous Plan B, proposing while we enjoyed a tranquil moment overlooking the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Having an excuse to work together closely with my love, my beloved mother, and closest friends on all of the different wedding details has been a joy.

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

Yoga! haha. On a more serious note, I am fortunate to have wonderful support in my love, my mother, my amazing bridal party and my incredible wedding planner. So, I haven’t really been stressed because I have so many people helping me to make our dream wedding a reality.

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

How easy it is to use!

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

Play around with all of the different parts of the website. You’ll find that you want to include things you initially hadn’t thought about on your website!

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

A wedding is only a fabulous one-day party. If you are fortunate enough to tie yourself to the right partner on that fateful day, you can look forward to a life filled with fabulous moments and cherished memories.
