Joy Proposal Story: Kanesha-and-Conrad

by Aubrey Bach
Sometimes, an engagement is a family affair. At least, that’s how it happened for Kanesha and Conrad, who are planning a wedding in Birmingham, Alabama and using Joy.

Give us the details! When? Where? How?

Conrad and I met while working in the same building at the Gunter Air Force Base in Alabama. But recently, Conrad got a new job in Mississippi. So one weekend, I packed up my 3 sons and his son to visit Conrad in Mississippi for the first time. My sister and her husband also happened to be in town, so we invited them to meet us all for a simple, casual dinner… or so I thought.
Little did I know, this was all planned out in advance. Very shortly after we arrived, Conrad handed me a card and said I have a question for you. The boys were all in on it too! They passed the card to me – you can see it in the picture below. I said “Yes!” and got the most beautiful yellow diamond ring with an infinity band and a kiss from my future husband.

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding? 

Having Conrad be involved and helping with the details. He has been a blessing, I don’t feel like I am doing the planning!

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

It helps that this is both our second marriages. We know that when it all comes down to it, we just need a bride, groom, and a minister We have all we need.

How did you hear about Joy?

I was searching for a site that would help us organize and inform guests.

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

Joy is priceless! We love the simplicity of it all. Joy is just what we need, and it’s not overly complicated. Also, we loved the name of the app. It sounded so serene and drew us in!

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

Use the sample wedding that they provide you with. If you do run into a problem or don’t know how to do something, reach out to the helpful customer assistance people. They answer back quickly and guide you if you get stuck.

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

That is essentially how we feel. Our wedding theme is happily ever after!
