Joy Proposal Story: Katie & Andrew

by Kelsey Vickers

How did the two of you meet?

Andrew was house sitting for his dad while Katie was staying at her Aunt Deb’s next door. Aunt Deb went out of town for a few days and Andrew offered Katie his number in case anything should come up. The first time they hung out, Andrew made Katie some poached eggs.

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

I knew what I wanted. I had to fight the instinct to “wait for the man” to ask me. A good girlfriend of mine had recently asked her partner to marry her, and I was inspired. I bought a ring and had it engraved to say, “I love you, neighbor boy”. I asked him while cuddled in bed!

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Family and friends coming together in support of our journey.

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

I wish for our wedding to be simple and comfortable! We have plenty of time to plan for a casual wedding.

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

I love having all of our wedding details in one place. It’s great to be able to host a paperless event.

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

Spend some time exploring your options and have fun with it!

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

We’re getting married to spend a lifetime of loyalty and love together, as partners.
