The Scottsdale, Arizona native spent 365 days planning the perfect way to ask girlfriend Jennifer Kessel to marry him and all of his hard work and dedication culminated in a proposal for the ages.
So what exactly did Smith do that was so epic? Starting on January 8 of last year, he began videotaping a short clip of himself holding a white board with THE question written on it, as well as various words of love, in a different location/pose every. single. day.
The point was to show Kessel that she was in his thoughts all day, every day, no matter what he' doing, whether that be washing dishes on hangin' with their cat. Making sure she never found out or suspected a thing could not have been easy and for that reason alone he deserves major praise.
After she finished watching the 15-minute compilation, Kessel was told to turn around and that's when she found Smith standing behind her "with rose petals on the sand leading her to him." He then got down on one knee and finally popped the question in person. Obviously, she said yes.
