Joy Proposal Story: Laura & Pete

by Cali Pitchel

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

It was our two year anniversary and Pete took me to have dinner to this beautiful restaurant by the harbor in Baltimore. Then he told me he was going to take me to a place where we were gonna take the most amazing pictures ever since pictures are my favorite! Then we started to go on top of Federal Hill and he covered my eyes… We went up and walked a little bit, then he took his hands off from my face and he got down in one knee saying, “You are are most amazing girl in the world. I want to spend the rest of my life with you… Would you marry me?”

Only you and your partner can determinate how happy and joyful your relationship can be…. Joy lasts forever, only if you make it happen!

I started jumping and looked around, he had a professional photographer there, his little sister taking a video and his mom with a poster that said, MARRY ME! He even put little candles in the shape of a heart on the floor! It was a big surprise! He is not the most romantic guy ever and the fact that “he extra” in my proposal was wonderful!


What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

Getting my dress hand made! I am from Colombia and I came there to get my dress made, I had something in mind but I found this amazing designer in Medellin and she did a gorgeous job! She made it in about 20 days!! It was amazing!! And on top of that the lady was so nice and told me her love story with an American guy too, it was a extraordinary experience and full with love! Now I have a beautiful dress hand made, with crochet applications and an story of a designer with an American lover too!


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

Praying and talking to my fiancé! God and him keep me sane, if I were by myself I wouldn’t have gone crazy already LOL I am so perfectionist that I get anxious about every single little thing, I’m gonna even do my own flowers and I made my own wedding stationary.. I confess it, I’m a Bridezilla, so praying and talking to mi amor helps me a lot, they are my rocks!

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

The flexibility and the fact that is free! It’s so simple to use and so beautiful and stylish! It is really a big tool!

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

Go into every single corner and ask questions about what you don’t know! It has everything you basically need and it also very simple to use, just explore and get creative!

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

That the spark and the love of marriage can last forever if you keep feeding it with faith in God! For us, as we live in this difficult times, where a lot of people doesn’t believe in true ever lasting love, compromise, loyalty and patience, keeping our faith strong and focussing on our relationship has helped us a lot! True love is possible! Love can last forever! Don’t ever let the articles about how bad the marriage can get affect you, don’t let that the unhappy married people tell you that marriage is going to suck! Only YOU and YOUR PARTNER can determinate how happy and joyful your relationship can be… Joy lasts forever, only if you make it happen!
