Together: 2 Years
Engaged: 9 Months
Cody and Joanna met over two years ago at rock show. He was performing on stage and immediately fell for the prettiest girl in the crowd. Joanna liked Cody’s music, but didn’t give dating him much thought. He pursued her and eventually won her heart. Joanna’s family laughed that she was following in the footsteps of her four sisters who all go for guys with “unrealized potential,” or in other words, lovable slackers. Joanna was underwhelmed by the engagement ring and proposal, but she hopes he can redeem himself by planning a romantic wedding. Cody is a struggling musician and depends mostly on his mother Barbara for everything from a roof over his head to groceries. He has also come to rely on his older brother Jordan as his partner in crime. Barbara has faith in her near perfect youngest son, but has serious doubts that her first born is responsible enough to pull off a fantastic wedding. Ever since her boys were little, Barbara has been their biggest fan and constant supervisor. It will be hard for her to resist getting involved especially with planning headquarters in her living room. Cody is under pressure to keep the peace with his mother while creating a wedding for Joanna that is one of a kind.
