After meeting in homeroom in the seventh grade and growing up together, Dana Anderson and Joseph (Joey) Costa felt like they were marrying their best friend.
Knowing Dana spent her summers in Roton Point in Rowayton, Joey chose this as his proposal site, and planned the proposal with the help of Dana’s dad, stepmom and younger brother. Dana was led to believe she was having a casual dinner with her family and Joey, but when she was lead out onto the pier, she found roses waiting for her and Joey proposed. After she said yes, the two walked back to her family where they received hugs and champagne.
The couple was married at Roton Point Association in Rowayton and the ceremony was officiated by Justice of the Peace Suzanne Doyle. Friends and family stayed at the venue for the reception and enjoyed a relaxing, laid-back evening. The reception was complete with a burger buffet and ice cream truck. Dana and Joey even sat inside the truck to hand out ice cream to their guests.
Dana is the daughter of Donna Spicer of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Scott Anderson of Fairfield. She attended Darien High School and Fairfield University, where she received her degree in history. Dana continued on to the Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing. The bride currently works as a registered nurse at Fairfield Primary Healthcare.
The groom is the son of Donna and Joseph Costa of Darien, where he attended Darien High School. Joey received his degree in finance and economics from Loyola University in New Orleans. He now is the director of operations at AX Trading in Stamford.
