Default I am a River... and she said YES!

Yo!

Been with my girl for a while now and have had the Foo be part of the DNA of our relationship. Well, I popped the question with a little help of "I am a River" as the soundtrack... and she said YES.

Since this is where the diehards hang, thought I would share - warts, curses, tech glitches and all. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5Dk...utu.be&t=8m31s

Nice! Congrats man.
How frustrating that the video kept cutting, good thing you had a sense of humour about it.

And the last collage building the ring gelled perfectly with the song's dramatic stringy outro. Perfect fit.

Edit: I LOVE that food is a big part of your relationship! haha

Yeah - the video glitches were a nightmare. After working on that video for a couple of weeks I had a plan for how the whole thing would play out. I definitely didn't see that coming. It made getting on my knee part and popping the question a piece of cake.

Thankfully it played correctly for that last mosaic of the ring... if it would have kept starting and stopping throughout that, I'd have been cursing up a storm that would have given my girl second guesses for sure.

And the food... I knew we liked food, but man, after putting that together I was amazed at how many pictures of our food we took - especially when we first moved to LA. I should've asked the restaurants for advertising sponsorships! ahahaha

Cheers!

Congrats dude! I was just saying in another topic that DOA is mine and my wife's honeymoon song - so Foo Fighters played a part in my wedding too!

Congrats to you.

Foo Fighters were apart of my wedding, as my wedding party danced to "Times Like These" acoustic....way better than any fucking country song.
