Emily and Justin

Where to Propose in On the Dead Sea between Jordan and Israel

How We Met

Justin and I met after I started going to church in 2013. I prayed that God would bring me a man to truly love and cherish forever, and I left the work to Him. Three months after that prayer I met the man, then just 17, who would become my fiance 4 and a half years later, and eventually my husband!

How He Asked

I was not expecting Justin’s proposal while we were in Israel. We were staying on the Dead Sea – on the Israel side with a beautiful view of Jordan – and Justin suggested we get up early to watch the sunrise. We got up, put on our nice clothes and watched the sunrise over the mountains. He dropped to his knee and told me that the past four years of loving me have been the greatest and he wanted more of that. I am forever thankful that our life together began in a land so beautiful – on a strip of land between Israel & Jordan, and that I will forever have this to look back on to remember where our journey began.
