Thanks for checking out Joanna and Joseph's Wedding Day at Westfield!!
Here is their story:
Joanna and Joe met in July 2016 during their medical school orientation. Joanna was the only girl who showed up at the YMCA to play basketball with some guys in her class and Joe was very sweet picking her to be on his team so she wasn't last. They sat by each other when classes started and their first date was later on in April of their first year. They have been together ever since and will graduate medical school soon after their wedding in May!
And When the Big Question Was Asked...
Last summer Joanna and Joe started talking more seriously about getting married because they knew in the fall they needed to make a decision about if they wanted to participate in the "Couple's Match" for residency programs after medical school. They both have always wanted to do a family medicine residency once they gradate in May 2020. They knew we wanted to be together and decided to apply to the same programs and "link" our applications so they would be matched at the same program. From that point on she knew at some point in the next few months he would propose haha, but had no clue how! In October 2019, Joanna went to Asheville with two of her friends in her med school class for a girls weekend. They had a great time Saturday and on Sunday they went to brunch before heading back to Greenville. After brunch Joanna was in the back seat of the car when all of a sudden her friend pulled into Asheville Botanical Garden. She was super confused but went with it (she was getting a little suspicious at this point if being honest). They started walking around the gardens and at one opening in the trees Joanna saw Joe and apparently just said "oh geez" and walked over to him haha. Joanna's sister had driven up from Greenville and was hiding in the trees taking photos as he proposed. It was a sweet, intimate moment and Joanna was so happy to have her sister and two close friends as the only people around.
