http://RingOnTheFinger.com – Videos of Marriage Proposals Sent in by Lovebirds Across the World

This absolutely amazing proposal video is by Michael Justin Films ( http://vimeo.com/mjfilms ). Here is what Michael had to say about putting this awesome film together:

“For the last 5 months, we have been working closely with our good friend John on an idea for his proposal film. He came to us with an elaborate script and a shot list and wanted help telling his story. Over the last 5 months, we met with John, traveled with him around NYC, even to western NJ, and helped him turn his idea into a reality.

When John realized he wanted to marry her (at the airport in France), he started collecting footage of them together wherever they went. For the next 9 months he brought his camera everywhere and filmed them together. During the times we filmed them together, John had made up this [white] lie that I needed more samples on my website and was filming them for a video I would later put up as a sample “love story.” Luckily she bought it.

What you are about to witness is nothing short of amazing — not because we helped film it, but because you’re about to see why we love what we do and why we believe memories like this should be documented. John and his [now] fiancée are a couple you can’t help but love because they’re so in love with each other. Sit back and enjoy this special memory.”

Hi, I think your site cοuld ρossіbly be having browѕer compatibility issues.
Whеn I takе a look at your sіtе in Ѕafari, it looks fіne however whеn
opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, great website!
