Clark sent me his video proposal to Kaytlin, which he’s been working on since his sophomore year at the University of Georgia. In the video, Kaytlin is watching the jumbotron at Georgia’s Sanford Stadium – the place is empty. Clark created a video connecting melodies and memories to Eric Church’s “Springsteen” which also includes plenty of live shows the two die-hard Church fans attended.
Here’s more from Clark, followed by the proposal which just set the new bar, fellas:
“Kaytlin and I have been dating for nearly five and a half years, and we are high school sweethearts. Little did she know, I was videoing every moment and capturing every memory of our relationship and saving it for this proposal. I took Kaytlin’s family on a “tour” of Sanford Stadium (GO DAWGS!), and I played this video on the Jumbotron before I took a knee.
I worked on this project since my sophomore year at the University of Georgia, and it was tough keeping this a secret for so long.
I used the song ‘Springsteen’ by Eric Church. The Chief always talks about the feeling you get when a melody and a memory connect, and says it’s one of the most powerful things in the world. Every single time I hear this song, I am transported back into time, and I relive these very special memories with Kaytlin. Although I am musically impaired, and quite frankly cannot carry a tune in a bucket, I still sing this song to her all the time.
“It’s funny how a melody, sounds like a memory.”
Kaytlin said yes, but not before I struggled getting the ring box open haha. It was a beautiful moment that I will never forget. I cannot wait to continue making memories with Kaytlin. We will travel the world, go to more concerts, see Mickey, have a family, and love God, each other, & others for the rest of our lives.
A very special thank you to: William Hearn, Katie Reed, Blake & Elizabeth Rackley, Chrissy Brown, Peter Adams, Abby Parks, Cody Stubbs, Shaun Chappis, Taylor Bailey, Jake Stroot, Ethan Smith, Baylor Terrell, the entire Church Choir, JD, Eric Church, and ECB.”
