Ricky and Joyce’s love story began at a friend’s wedding. After the night was over, a few months went by before they reunited again and began exploring New York City together and bonding over their mutual appreciation for music.
On their first date, Ricky made Joyce homemade macaroons and visited a cozy restaurant where they tied chopstick paper wrappers with their initials. Since then, they have traveled the world together, challenged each other, and enjoyed the calmness and excitement they feel when they’re together!
For their proposal, Ricky began brainstorming personalized marriage proposals that would allow him to create a moment Joyce would treasure forever–something intimate and private yet bold enough for her to know how much she meant to him. A family trip to Paris was the perfect opportunity for Ricky to express how he felt! He worked with The Heart Bandits to come up with the perfect Paris proposal idea that matched his vision.
Ricky and Joyce’s parents helped Joyce arrive at the colorful Paris garden where her soon-to-be fiance was waiting on the third floor. As Joyce walked through the garden, she felt a rush of intimacy and romance as she read a sign that said “Ricky and Joyce’s Love Story.”
As she walked through a breathtaking path of glittering lanterns and lush rose petals, she found a framed letter from Ricky filled with heartfelt words and beautiful photos from their relationship. Joyce continued along the path of rose petals and walked through a dreamy replica of Pixel Forest–an exhibit they viewed together at a museum and a great reminder of the memories they shared together.
With a violin playing in the background, Joyce made her way to Ricky who was waiting for her on the third floor surrounded by hundreds of soft, pink rose petals and luxurious candles. As Ricky got down on one knee and read a love letter he wrote for Joyce, she said “yes!” with tears in her eyes and the elegant Paris skyline in the background.
To celebrate their engagement, Ricky and Joyce joined their family and enjoyed bubbly champagne, a delectable macaroon tower, and once-in-a-lifetime views of the Eiffel Tower!
