Caleb and Margalit

How They Asked

We live in New York, but Margalit was in traveling to Israel for one of her best friend’s weddings. I had told her I wasn’t able to make the trip. Ultimately I decided to surprise her in Jerusalem the day after the wedding. I coordinated with her aunt to get her to a scenic overlook of the Old City. She thought she was going to a gallery opening. When she stood up to take a panorama picture, I came up behind her and asked if she was getting a good shot? She was shocked to see me, and I wasted no time popping the question.

Proposal Ideas Jerusalem, Israel

We had been dating two years when we got Engaged, but we had met on a summer trip to Israel 10 years ago. I remember meeting her, but her memory of the encounter is a little foggy. Anyway, when I popped the question I said, “since you don’t remember meeting me here, I came back with a photographer so you’ll always remember that we got engaged here”.
