Austin told Joy-Anna,
“I just asked her to enter a courtship with me,”
“And I said yes! We’ve known each other for a long time.”
Austin chimed in,
“Almost 15 years. I picked this spot because last time we were here together was August 1, 2015.”
‘There was a whole group of us that came up. And we were just hanging out and it was really late at night, stars were just gorgeous. For me, that’s really special, but then just being with him. And then now it’s even more special because it’s where we start our courtship.”
Austin further explained,
“It’s a place that I’ve come many times to just get away and spend time with the Lord. I just knew that this was the place that I wanted to ask her.”
Joy-Anna then stated that she was “surprised” when he asked,
“I hadn’t been here in so long. I was not expecting this. So happy.”
Joy and Austin announced their engagement on March 3, 2017. Austin proposed to Joy after treating her to a horseback riding outing (complete with two chaperones) and an outdoor meal of venison, grilled potatoes, and green beans.
