“I wanted to think of a really cool way to propose to my girlfriend, Janice, and this song and video is what I came up with. I wanted to show her that not only do I love her but that she’s loved by all our friends and family too. This was particularly important as she hasn’t been able to see much of her family for 7 years since she moved to the UK and she misses them lots.
I managed to get Zach involved through Kickstarter when pledging an amount for his new film “Wish I Was Here”. The team were SO kind and SO amazing they got his part of the video to me super early as they really liked the idea. Like me, Janice is a huge fans of “Scrubs” so I knew it would blow her away.
I can’t thank all our friends and family enough for their contributions. Special mention must go to Ed and Bruno who travelled Europe especially to film their part of the video which is awesome! A huge thank you to Zach as well and Coco for making this all possible.”
“On 1/22/13, I decided to propose to the girl of my dreams…no wait better than the girl of my dreams because she is real. We have been dating for over five years and have both been experienced skydivers for three years. I wanted to do the most extreme proposal I could think of. First, I wanted to have her believe the real ring fell out the plane as I proposed before we exit the airplane. After she believes the ring is gone forever, I had her two sisters and best friend waiting on the ground with the real ring. I then, proceeded to ask her to marry me for the second time with the real ring. Her sisters surprised us both with a bottle of champagne and breakfast. Needless to say, the proposal went PERFECT. Check out the video!”
“Tiffany and I had always wanted to visit the Turks and Caicos islands, and we are fairly avid Scuba divers, so I thought it might be neat to propose underwater. I had to figure out how to do this safely (for both us AND the ring), and without her knowing it was coming. I put some thought into it, and eventually came up with the idea to write ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ on my marker buoy (safety sausage, to Scuba folks) and tie the ring to the end of it, and then roll the whole thing up and attach it to my side. I was going to then put a small amount of air in it under water so that it would unroll and display both the message and the ring.
I waited until the end of the first dive, and then as we were about 60 feet down headed back towards the boat, I stopped her in the water and unrolled the buoy. It took a few seconds for her to look at it and figure out what was going on, but then, amidst a huge amount of bubbles, she enthusiastically nodded ‘yes!’ I untied the ring from the buoy and put it on her finger, and then we took our regulators out and kissed. Finally, we surfaced and went back to the boat, where everyone was waiting with applause. She had no idea it was coming. I am thrilled that I was able to make her so happy (and also that she said yes).”
