Jennifer & Dean share a love story that has literally gone viral. And I don’t mean that in a metaphorical sense. Dean knew very early into dating Jennifer that he wanted to marry her. But in talking with her, he knew she needed more time, and he also knew how much she loved countdowns. She literally had a countdown on her phone for most major events in her life.
So he put those two things together and spent the next 365 days secretly proposing to her by recording a few-second video asking if she would marry him each day. Then he edited the footage together and used the video to propose to her while they were on vacation (of course she said yes).
See below to watch the proposal:
As you’ll see in the link above, the proposal video currently has over 28 million views. I think it’s because Dean’s love for Jennifer is pure and honest and willing to wait and spend over a year preparing to ask her one simple question.
My favorite moment capturing their wedding was probably their first look – and also when they shared a surprise video with their guests at the reception. It was similar to the proposal video as they had spent the last year shooting and editing it, and it truly was a beautiful bookend to such a remarkable journey.
On a side note, huge shoutout to Karma Event Lighting for their beautiful work at this wedding. Lighting makes a HUGE difference for us, and Jeremy & Alicia are simply the best. They know how to transform any space into something truly spectacular, and they genuinely care about the couples they work with.
