Back in September, JDate announced that it was looking for the “Next Top Proposal” video. The rules went something like this:

JDate®.com, the iconic community responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other online dating sites combined, is in search of the most surprising or unique JDate marriage proposal. Former JDaters® who met their fiancé or spouse on JDate and who captured their engagement on camera are encouraged to share their proposal videos via JDate’s Facebook page for a chance to win a seven night all-inclusive stay at Breezes Bahamas.

With all the sweet, tear-inducing, online proposal videos, how was the panel of five judges to choose just one lucky couple? Well, while the three finalist videos were great and all, it was obvious that “I Do Love You,” the “best Jewish musical marriage proposal video,” was the winner, said judging panelist, Laurie Davis, author of Love @ First Click: The Ultimate Guide to Online Dating and founder of eFlirt Expert.

“I just thought that it was such a creative proposal, and anyone who puts that amount of thought, and effort, into popping the question has really given a lot of thought to their relationship.”

Davis said that it was a touch choice because whoever won would be awarded a dream honeymoon, making lasting memories. But if you’ve seen “I Do Love You,” you just know that this guy put in his all— this couple deserves some beach time.

Before they were crowned King and Queen of Viral Proposal Bliss, Eric LaBarre and Nina Sturtz rallied on Twitter to get votes:

It all paid off. If you don’t remember the winning video from last year, watch it again here. But get the tissues because this one has romcom game.
