This Guy Spent 17 Months Planning His Proposal…and It’s All Caught on Tape!

We’re suckers for a good proposal story. The only thing we love more? When it’s all caught on tape for us to watch over and over again. And this tear-jerker might go down in history as the most thoughtful proposal ever. Levy meticulously planned how he’d pop the question over the course of 17 MONTHS, involving close friends, family, and a little scavenger hunt. Watch the video to see how it all went down.

Did you tear up when Tiffany walked onto the filed with her dad? We did! We also reached out to the videographers, Lauren and Clint of Candlelight Films, because we needed to know more. They worked hand-in-hand with Levy for a year and a half to storyboard this video and plan out the details of the special day. Here’s the story behind this epic proposal:

A lifelong romantic, Levy started his proposal piggy bank at the age of 12. 4 years, 9 months, and 13 days ago he met a girl from Michigan State at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. They then crossed paths in Hot Springs and Indianapolis, and finally, almost a year later, they exchanged numbers at a conference in D.C.

Tiffany and Levy dated long distance, from SoCal to Michigan, for 3.5 years. Skype dates, phone calls, 350,000 sky miles, and lots of missing each other is tough for hopeless romantics.

Finding a date that would work with the schedules of thirty friends and family from all over the country, as well as keeping it a surprise, were the hardest parts of planning the proposal. Levy called Candlelight Films and asked us to create a video of the proposal 17 months ago. At that time he already knew he wanted to propose where they first met, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

Tiffany, now a master’s student at University of Florida, thought she was visiting California to attend a military event for Levy’s father.
