Happy National Proposal Day! Oh wait, you didn’t even know there was such thing as National Proposal Day? Welp, there is, and it’s second only to National Ice Cream Sandwich Day in my eyes as far as random holidays go. But it gives us an excuse to binge on some feel-good videos from our friends at Love Stories TV (dubbed “the Netflix of wedding videos”). We’ve rounded up our favorite videos from their extensive library of partners popping the question, and they are epic — from a billboard in Times Square to creating a movie trailer. But forewarning, you’ll want to have a box of tissues handy.
Lindsay and Dylan by Sharper Image Productions
Dylan here gets a million gold stars for his creative and insanely creative proposal idea. He asked to Lindsay to marry him by creating a movie trailer, which he screened in the same movie theater they shared their first kiss while Lindsay was there for another movie. Lindsay did not suspect a thing until Dylan popped up on the big screen in the same exact spot he first told her he loved her.
McKayla and Aaron’s proposal video by Yellow Productions
Aaron is a 14-year war veteran who became blind due to an explosion in December of 2011. Over the years that followed, Aaron shared the milestone moments of his rehabilitation on social media, from running marathons and climbing mountains to solo whitewater kayaking. Aaron’s social posts captured the attention of long-time family friend McKayla, who reconnected with Aaron from over 4,000 miles away. (You can read more about their amazing love story here!) The non-profit organization Holidays for Heroes helped Aaron set up an incredible proposal.
Hayley and Dillon by Elle Lily Photography & Videography
The proposal was a setup as the couple was modeling as a married couple for a styled wedding shoot in Fallbrook, California. Dillon was tricked into wearing a mic and being interviewed for a “blog post” for the videographer’s website. She tells us about their relationship and all the reasons she loves Hayley, moments before Hayley pops the question.

Ashley and Dane by CinemaFour40, edited by Fine Tuned Films
The groom to be spent eight months planning the engagement (a day-long adventure for the bride-to-be). He included all of their friends and family but when he got down on one knee it was just the two of them in a room lit with candles and it could not have been more romantic or emotional!
Tonya and Carl by Films by J
Fashion influencer/blogger @Tonyamichelle26 got faked out by her boyfriend, the filmmaker is a real schemer! The proposal is absolutely gorgeous and so emotional!
Nicole and AJ by Brian Michael Tully
AJ orchestrated the most epic way to propose. He planned what Nicole thought was an ordinary date night in NYC, but it was so much greater than that. He rented out a huge digital billboard in Times Square, coordinated with Nicole’s boss to get her there at the right time, and had family members hidden in the crowds!
