Joyce & Corbett’s love story began while attending Alabama State University. Both studying Rehabilitation Services, they were first introduced in a formal classroom setting. However, they soon discovered they had a lot more in common than just their studies. Their passion for helping others, traveling, and trying new food spots together led them to love – and now forever!

How they met…
Joyce is from Montgomery, Alabama and Corbett is from Florence, Alabama. We first met while attending classes at Alabama State University . Both majoring in Rehabilitation Services, we were introduced by way of classroom introductions on 8/21/2013. Corbett played football and did well on and off the field. We were both members of the Rehab club. Corbett graduated in 2014 and Joyce later graduated in 2015.
What makes their relationship special…
Our relationship is special because we both value each other’s honesty, communication, and individuality. We both respect each other and set healthy boundaries. Due to our different schedules we always value each other’s time when we are together. A few things we enjoy doing are traveling together, eating at nice restaurants, and shopping for new things. Our relationship is unique because we don’t worry about what others may think or say, our main focus is us and how we can better ourselves each and everyday.
When they knew they found the one…
I knew Corbett was the one because he puts me first and makes sure I’m doing well at all times. Regardless of what decision we make, we are with each other every step of the way. We are both supportive of one another and we both love each other greatly.
The proposal was definitely a surprise and was least expected. We had dinner at our favorite restaurant which is Kobe Japanese Steakhouse. While leaving the restaurant, Corbett got down on one knee and asked me to marry him in front of a few close family and friends. I could tell Corbett put a lot of thought in it because he surprised me with flowers and my favorite gourmet chocolate covered strawberries.
The ring is very special to me because it’s the shape I always wanted… pear. He proposed with a 14k white gold engagement ring. Diamonds wrap around the pear shape diamond and around the band.
What they’re most excited about for their wedding…
I’m excited to see all of my family and friends witness me marry the man of my dreams. I’m excited to enjoy every moment of it. I’m also excited to see all of our hard work come together.
