First off, congrats! What’s the best thing about being a newlywed?
The best thing for us is that nothing has changed!
What is the most memorable moment from the wedding?
During our vows outside the Doge’s Palace in Venice, I fumbled Chris’ ring and nearly dropped it into the canal!
With the wedding over and some time to reflect on the celebration, would you have done anything differently—splurge on a pricier dress, nix the favors, go for that extra passed appetizer?
Neither of us would change anything about our wedding day. To us, nothing could be better than an intimate elopement to Venice!
The million dollar question: Did you have any time to enjoy the food or the cake?
After our ceremony and photos, the whole wedding party changed into casual clothes, walked across town for dinner, and overloaded on pasta and Prosecco. With only nine of us in total, we were able to enjoy the entire experience with our closest family.
What tips do you have for other Joy couples still in the midst of wedding planning?
It’s the marriage that matters, not the wedding. The day you plan should set the tone for the life you want to live together!
How did you stay sane during wedding planning?
We didn’t plan for more than an hour total. I found my dress online. We found our restaurant online. We left our guests to their own travel plans and logistics. We trusted that, with our most important and loved people by our side, it would all fall together… and it did!
How did you hear about Joy?
Searching online for an easy-to-use app we could use to coordinate our elopement.
What was your favorite part about using Joy for the wedding?
The communal photo upload feature and the countdown! These are both a great way to get our guests involved and excited.
What’s the one thing you wish Joy did (or did better)?
At Joy we believe that although a wedding lasts one day, joy lasts forever. What does that mean to you and your husband?
We’re as happy on our couch together in the evenings as we were roaming around Venice on our wedding day. We’re lucky to find joy every day together, in the smallest and most normal things.
