Joy Proposal Story: Kara & Anthony

by Kelsey Vickers
Joy Proposal Story: Kara & Anthony

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

I told my soon-to-be-fiancé that I will be setting up an event featuring many designers and 300 + people will be attending. (Which meant I will not be near my phone for immediate calls/messages). Little did she know, I was setting up for our future. I knew that her sister was in town, so I invited her and her boyfriend to attend. I also invited her friend from a program she did in New York years ago and invited her boyfriend to help celebrate. Since we both were photographers, I set up five years worth of pictures dangling from the balloons. She knew we had dinner at seven, so I told her I would meet her there. After dinner, I let her know that her “gift” was at another location, and we would drive to the spot.

At that time, I texted our friends and family to gather in the bathroom since we were on our way to the hotel. I blindfolded her (she just had micro-blading that day, so she told me to be careful of her eyebrows) and we were on our way! We arrived at the room, and at that point, the blindfold was falling off and she already saw the photographer and now she’s thinking “What’s going on?” I also heard some noise in the bathroom (later, I found out it was her sister trying to contain her tears) and I knew I had to do everything quickly! I said a few words, got down on one knee, and she said, “Yes!” Afterward, I told her I had another surprise, knocked on the bathroom door, and out came her friends and family to congratulate her! It was such a memorable experience, and I cannot wait to get married to the love of my life!

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

We haven’t planned much yet, but we are foodies. So we will be so excited to try out different foods from what the caters will offer. Plus we’re excited about cake tastings!

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

By just putting down the computer, and turn on our favorite show, and lots of wine!

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

The ease of having everything in the palm of your hand

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

It’s a free app that helps you plan everything about your wedding.

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

It’s the little moments that we will cherish forever. It’s the photos that we take. It’s cooking dinner today. It’s being there for each other when things don’t go one way. Joy is knowing that we both have each other’s back.
