Joy and Kevin met briefly for the first time in 2010 and later became Facebook friends. In 2013, they crossed paths again at a Saint Patricks Day Celebration. “He asked for my phone number. The next day, he asked me out to dinner. We have been together ever since.”
Kevin proposed in April 2017, after a trip to the beach in New Jersey.
113 guests were in attendance for their outdoor June nuptials at Springfield Manor, including eight bridesmaids and nine groomsmen. “We wanted something short, meaningful and with a comfortable amount of religion and spirituality. My sisters walked me halfway down the aisle to where my father was waiting, who escorted me the remainder of the way. It felt very special.”
The couple chose a neutral color palette, focusing on pale blue, white, grey, and peach. “Initially I agonized over the palette and bridesmaid dress colors. After I made the decision that I wasn’t going to try to make everything a perfect match, everything fell into place.”
Joy is a behavioral health therapist and Kevin is a business analyst. They currently reside in Owings Mills.
