Love is in the air! Jonathan and Rebekah have one of the cutest meet-cute stories you’ll ever hear! A fake proposal and a famous sugar packet that even made it’s way to their wedding day!
Rebekah and Jonathan first met at a college church conference on January 3, 2014. She attended by herself and Jonathan went with some friends from the fraternity. Rebekah sat down at a table and was playing Head’s Up, when she invited the table next to her to join (where Jonathan was sitting). They really hit it off, and the 4 of them went to the Cheesecake Factory.
Jonathan decided to fake proposed to Rebekah, and sang the song “Baby, Just Say Yes” to get her to say yes to the fake proposal. For the rest of the 3 day conference they acted as if they were engaged, holding hands and laying the pick up lines on thick. At one point Jonathan even dropped a sugar packet on the ground and said, “I think you dropped your name tag, Sugar”.
Following the conference they Skyped every night, and he joined in on her family’s daily devotions. A little less than 2 weeks later, he asked her to be his girlfriend. They met for the first time as boyfriend and girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, 2014 and shared their first kiss.
On June 3, 2017, Jonathan got down on one knee and asked Rebekah to marry him. He had put the ring in the same sugar packet that he dropped on the floor when they first met. He used the same cheesy pickup line and said, “I think you dropped your name tag” and when she picked it up it said, ‘Mrs. Eaton’ instead of ‘Sugar’. She opened it up and found the ring inside.
Rebekah’s wedding details were stunning!
This is the famous Sugar packet that has been with them throughout their years together!
