It Took This Man 26 Countries and 4 Years to Shoot His Proposal Video (Watch!)

Around the World Proposal: Jack Hyer / TheKnot.com Jack Hyer

When you know, you know — and Jack Hyers just knew. So much, in fact, that after his first date with Rebecca Strellnauer, he knew that he would marry her one day.

“I didn’t want to tell it to her face and scare her off,” Jack told ABC News. “That’s when I decided to make the video because I knew I wanted to travel.”

When Jack and Rebecca went on their first date, they were both students at the University of Montana. While waiting for a flight to London, the idea dawned on him of using The Proclaimers’s famous song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” — you know, the song you danced to in college during ’80s night — to lip-synch to and proclaim his love while he filmed himself traveling though 26 countries, including France, Israel, China and Vietnam.

Four years later, when Rebecca thought she was sitting down to watch a graduation slideshow Jack had made for her, she was actually watching the video. At the end of it, her soon-t0-be fiance is filmed saying:

“I’ve been on many adventures. I’ve traveled on elephant, on camelback, hiked to the lowest point on the earth and I’ve gotten to see some of the highest. But the best adventure I’ve had is loving Becca.”

Cue the proposal and tons of awwwwwwwws.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
