Marriage Proposal Ideas in Julian, CA

How We Met

We met at Grace Bible Church of Menifee in early 2011 but didn’t really start talking to one another until a year later when we were attending a Friday night Bible study course. Over time, we grew a friendship that blossomed into a beautiful relationship. We give God all the glory in how He brought us together and thank Him for the wonderful ways He has blessed our relationship.

How They Asked

We have a long distance relationship (San Diego to Baltimore), and he came to visit for Thanksgiving weekend. It was the Friday after, and we took a drive to the old mining town of Julian, CA. It’s an old-west-feel kind of place famous for their apple pie. I thought we were going to get lunch, but he pulled into a side street and continued driving while I kept asking, “Where are we going?”. We got out of the car and walked to the other side of a large field where I spotted a gigantic pinecone and told him I wanted to take it home with me.

As we approached, I saw a ring box lying on the ground beside it. I excitedly looked at him and he got down and asked me the best question I have ever been asked. I said YES immediately. We are thrilled to embark on this new chapter of our relationship together!
