Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
Gill proposed on his birthday, in June. We had spent all day riding roller coasters at a theme park and he wanted to go to our favorite part of the city for dinner and drinks with friends. For some reason, he was super persistent about leaving by a certain time which is not like him, but I didn’t think anything of it. For some reason, he wanted to park at his old place and walk to the downtown area, which is a 10-minute walk. It started to rain and he suggested we walk through the park across the street which was not on the way at all, but I also didn’t think anything of it. When we got to the middle of the park, he turned to me and told me he loved me. As soon as he reached into his pocket, I started sobbing happy tears and blacked out! I don’t even remember him asking me, but I know I said “yes”!
What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?
Our engagement photos. It was so much fun!
How do you stay sane under the pressures of wedding planning?
My fiancé, he’s incredible. Anytime I get upset or stressed about anything he’s able to calm me down with a hug and telling me that it’ll all work out.
What is your favorite part of using Joy for your wedding?
You have a little room for creativity and the interface is super easy to use.
What piece of advice would you give couples to ensure that they use Joy to its fullest potential?
Spend time on your site. Show it to your fiancé and take advantage of all the cool things you can do with it.
At Joy we believe that even though a wedding lasts a day, joy lasts forever. What does that mean to you?
A wedding is a just one day of celebrating. Real joy comes in spending a lifetime with your best friend. When you’re planning a wedding it’s easy to lose sight of what the real purpose is. You have to realize that the most important thing is working on creating a marriage that will last.
