Joy Proposal Story: Kevin & Danielle

by Kelsey Vickers
Joy Proposal Story: Kevin & Danielle

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

Kevin and I love traveling together, we try to travel somewhere new at least once a year. Iceland was at the top of our list. So, I decided to surprise him with round-trip flights for Christmas. For two weeks, we drove the entire Ring Road, camping along the way. We spent our first two nights in Reykjavik before setting off on our epic road trip. When we first arrived, we decided to explore the city a bit. After a few hours, we eventually wandered along the shoreline and stopped to admire the gorgeous view of Mt. Esja in the distance. While we were sitting on the rocks, I turned to grab more film for my Polaroid camera when I turned back to face Kevin, he was holding out the ring in front of me! Of course, I said, “Yes”!


What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Kevin and I decided not to do the whole ‘traditional wedding’ thing. Instead, we hired an Italian Wedding Planner to assist us in planning a small, intimate destination wedding in the city and country where we first met. Venice, Italy!

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

I just take a deep breath and try to focus on all of the amazing things to come!

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

It’s easy to use and free!



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

Embrace the templates. I’m an artist/designer and sometimes it makes life so much easier to have templates to just plug information into.


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

At the end of the day, the wedding isn’t what is most important. What truly matters is the bond between two people who love each other unconditionally.
