Joanna and Jonathan were married in November 2015 in the Clanard Court Hotel, Athy, Co. Kildare.
We take a look at their journey that took them to their wedding day.
In 2013, Joanna made the decision to visit her sister Maria and her husband Donal who were living in Phoenix, Arizona.
Through work, Maria met and became very good friends with Brooke and her husband Bill. During her visit, Joanna was brought along to a basketball game that the two families, including Joanna’s three nephews, Luke, Matthew and Nathan, had arranged to attend together.
It was at this basketball game that Joanna and Jonathan met for the first time! They didn’t speak very much that day as both were very shy!
Soon after, Jonathan plucked up the courage to get Joanna’s number and he sent her a text! They quickly struck up a conversation that hasn’t ended to this day.
Jonathan moved to Ireland in 2014, and in April of 2015 he took Joanna for a picnic to Lough Key Forest Park. It was here that Jonathan got down on one knee and popped the question…..to which Joanna immediately said yes!
On November 21st 2015 Joanna and Jonathan said “I do” in front of their family and friends in a beautiful ceremony which was held in the stunning setting of the Clanard Court Hotel in Athy, Co.Kildare.
Just some of the people that helped make Joanna & Jonathan’s day special.
