Joy Proposal Story: Mary & Ken

by Kelsey Vickers

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

Ken proposed during our annual family vacation on Prince Edward Island. It was my 30th birthday and we were taking our daily morning walk along the beach with our two dogs. Ken wrote a special birthday message, “Will you marry me?” in the sand.  Meanwhile, our 2-year old rambunctious Australian Sheppard mix was off exploring the dunes and dragging around a dead bird. This resulted in me chasing her and Ken having to scratch out his message before I could see it to help get the bird from our dog! After we chased her down, we continued our walk. Ken re-wrote my message in the sand. I was completely shocked and just kept saying, “Are you serious?!”. It was the perfect proposal and it really optimized our crazy life together! We celebrated with my parents, sister, brother-in-law and my brother. It was truly perfect!

What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?

My favorite part of planning has been thinking about how much fun it will be to have friends and family all together to celebrate and dance the night away!

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

I tell myself that it’s just a party and that it’s supposed to be fun!

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

I love that it’s super user-friendly! I also like the tech-focused features of Joy and the ability to integrate through an app! I wish more weddings we attended used Joy. I always have a hard time finding details about the ceremony, reception, and wedding in general.

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

Try to customize as much as possible. Also, I wouldn’t rely too heavily on the RSVP function. You still need to stay organized yourself!

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

Joy is deeper than a fleeing feeling. Joy is an emotion that you sense in the core of your being. Unlike your wedding day, it’s not just a moment in time, it’s forever.
