Meet Josh and Sandra! This sweet couple was scheduled to get married this past May, but because of COVID-19, they had to reschedule their wedding day for this coming January 2021. Not only do I admire both of them for being first responders here in Houston but also because of their patience and positivity throughout this whole situation. Below are a few questions that tell a little bit of their story. I can’t wait to celebrate with them in a few months!
|What is your proposal story?
“Josh and I had a failed photoshoot in October of 2018, so, to make up for it he hired a new photographer & said we would retake family photos. Little did I know that he was planning on proposing. He went to my parents the night before & asked for permission to marry me (even though we lived together already & had an almost six-month-old, at the time (Lol)). Anyway, my mom called me that night & asked if she could come to watch us take photos. I thought it was soooo strange but said okay. Then the next day she called me and asked if my dad could come. I was so confused because my dad never ever takes off work (Lol). At the end of our shoot, we were given a chalkboard & asked to write what we love about each other. When I turned around to show Josh my chalkboard he was on his knee with our daughter. His chalkboard said, “Will you marry us?”
Favorite part about being engaged?
“Planning everything together & learning new things about each other. Josh has helped me tremendously and has reached out to vendors. When we picked out our cake, the baker was surprised we came together. Apparently a lot of couples don’t go together. Josh and I have always been a good team & he takes the stress away from me as much as he can.”
What advice do you have for other couples planning a wedding?
“A lot of things won’t go how you envisioned them. We just postponed our wedding for TEN months due to the notorious Corona Virus. I never wanted a winter wedding (I hate the cold) but things happen that are out of your control. So, don’t worry about it too much. Enjoy the process and trust the timing of your life or in this case, wedding.”
