About Joy

Learn about Joy and their company culture.

View company profile

Joy is a wedding company that gives couples a smarter way to plan their big day.

Michael, Kaiwalya, and I founded Joy to make wedding planning more intuitive, thoughtful, and personal.

It all started when Michael’s sister Amy was planning her wedding and we saw her struggle to find a wedding website that offered the personalization and attention to detail she was looking for. We built her a custom website to fit her style, and when her friends and wedding guests began asking us to create sites for them, we knew we were on to something.

Soon we were meeting after our day jobs, spending our spare time designing a website that anyone could customize to feel like it was built just for them. In 2016 we officially founded Joy.

We started with beautiful wedding websites, then developed powerful tools to modernize wedding planning, help couples stay organized, and create a seamless experience for couples and their guests.

We’re constantly evolving and building new features, to give you a smarter way to plan your big day.

Using Joy, couples can create a beautifully-designed wedding website and mobile app, build their All-in-One wedding registry, manage guest lists, send digital or printed save the dates and invitations, track RSVPs, host virtual wedding events, and more.

Based in San Francisco, Joy was founded in 2016 and is a Y Combinator graduate. Visit withjoy.com and follow @JoytheApp on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter to see why couples around the world are planning their weddings with Joy.

Diversity & Inclusion Pledge

Diversity, inclusion, and equity are part of Joy’s mission, vision, and DNA. We celebrate love in all its forms. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

We vow to support and celebrate diverse couples, wedding planners and wedding vendors.We are taking action as a company to create lasting change and to do our part to ensure hate and discrimination have no place in this world or within the wedding industry.
