Once in awhile, you come across a video on YouTube that makes you laugh, cry, and watch through to the very end, cheering on the people in the video even though they are total strangers. This lip dub proposal is one of those videos. I sat here watching this lipdub proposal video with a huge smile on my face, which quickly turned to tears, then back to a smile. We are so happy for Brad and Emily and it’s clear to see they have an awesome amount of friends and family that contributed to make this a day to remember. So, watch this proposal video – you won’t regret it! The best part is that Emily has no idea what’s about to happen… great job, Brad + everyone!
Congrats, you two! Video by Bradley Productions (Brad + his team) based in Michigan! Yay for these fellow Michiganders. :)

You’ll love this Napa Valley engagement session! Sarah, the future bride to be, has a strong affection for Napa Valley and its beautiful vineyards. The perfect location for their engagement photos were at Domaine Chandon in Yountville, CA. Sarah and Matt held hands and had fun strolling through the vineyard. As they walked along, Matt pulled Sarah close for an embraced kiss, dipped her as she laughed, and gazed into her eyes. Matt adding a little bad boy attitude brought along a Chevelle SS muscle car, so cool and hip they just had to pose with it. They finished off their Napa Valley engagement session near the Wine Train, an elegant and fully restored train that takes visitors through Napa’s most breathtaking vineyards. They’ll be married in November at the Viansa Winery in Sonoma. Capturing the many instants Sarah and Matt shared this day was Napa photographer Jen from Photography by Jen Philips. See this cute couple and their wonderful day after the jump…
