Joy Proposal Story: Jen & Max

by Kelsey Vickers
Joy Proposal Story: Jen & Max

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

After dating 16 months, Max surprised me by asking me to marry him. The night started with dinner at Catherine and Mary’s, an Italian restaurant I was eager to visit. After dinner, we walked to the Orpheum to watch The Sound of Music. The night was already perfect but when I walked into my apartment I saw a beautiful display of candles and rose petals. Max got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. Completely speechless and full of excitement I said, “Yes!” Following the intimate proposal, Max arranged a surprise engagement party where we celebrated with friends.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Planning the honeymoon!

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

We remind each other not to take things so seriously and make each other laugh when we get stressed. We continue to do things we enjoy with friends and family and try not to isolate ourselves.

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

I appreciate the simplicity and organization of the website. The responsive design is very user-friendly.

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

I recently discovered the feature that alternates photos while scrolling through each section. This is a great opportunity to share a variety of engagement photos or moments from the dating years!

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

Your wedding is a rare moment that you get to share the love you have for your partner, with all of your friends and family. Don’t forget to enjoy the day and make lasting memories with all of your loved ones!
