Man Proposes to His Girlfriend Lip Dub Style

(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) -- Bradley Jansen, 24, of Grand Rapids sang, or actually lip dubbed, his way into his girlfriend's heart, forever, this past Memorial Day weekend.

Emily Kaplan, also 24, thought she was just out for a leisurely trip to Tunnel Park in Holland, Mich., with Jansen, and never expected she’d be swept off her feet as an engaged woman by the end of the day.

It all started in the car ride on the way to the park, when Jansen began singing One Direction’s popular hit, “One Thing” to Kaplan. She didn’t think much of it because apparently Jansen often breaks out in song.

But Jansen had more than just the simple serenade up his sleeve. He had planned an elaborate lip dub marriage proposal for Kaplan, carefully incorporating all their closest family and friends into a full-blown performance, followed up by a more sentimental, one-on-one moment with just the two of them on the shore of Lake Michigan.

“I am a last-minute person, and this really came together the week of, basically. I had been talking about it for a while with some of the guys that I work with. We’re all part of a production team, we like to do video stuff,” Jansen told ABC News.

All Jansen’s hard work paid off, and the happy couple is now planning their big day. No date has been set yet, but they do know it will be next summer, preferably on Lake Michigan.
