Adam & Jared's Engagement Video Was Viewed 14 Million Times. Now, Watch Their Wedding!

Theirs was possibly the "viral" engagement ever. And now that they've sealed the deal, Adam and Jared have generously invited us all to join in their 'Joy Story' yet again by watching the video of their incredible wedding!

When Adam choreographed a flash-mob proposal at the couple's spinning studio, the heart-touching video was shared like mad, eventually surpassing 14 MILLION views. It was clear from their first moments as an engaged couple that Adam and Jared share a deep and powerful connection. And as the pair planned and orchestrated their wedding day over the next 18 months, they captured many special moments in episodes of their show, 'Joy Story.'

It all culminated in our two-part Wedding Day special featuring #TeamJadam. In Part I, we got to witness all the little things that went into the set-up for the ceremony and the reception, we got to hear directly from the grooms-to-be about their swirling emotions, and we even got a peek at the hand-written vows that the couple prepared.

And then, the main event! Part II of the Wedding Day episode is simply stunning. We get to hear the speech delivered by Flo Pritchard, the wedding officiant, about the special connection that Adam and Jared share—followed, of course, by the I Do's!
Perhaps the most special part of the whole thing is getting to hear Adam and Jared's hand-written vows to one another. Grab your tissues, because these vows are truly something out of a fairy tale. Adam started his by saying, "Jared, you are my hero." And Jared returned the emotional message to his betrothed, telling Adam, "the day I met you, my life changed forever."

Fun fact: You may remember the song from the flashmob proposal Jess Glynne - Hold My Hand, well the acoustic version of the song by Megan Davies (feat. Emily Hackett) was used for Adam & Jared's wedding ceremony.

The joy, love, and excitement captured in this Wedding Day video is something that we can all aspire to bring to our lives every day. If we ever find ourselves missing those feelings, well, we can always come back and watch this video!

This HooplaHa original video was shot by Johnny Perez + Marc Cheung and edited by Kellie Sieban. To see more inspiring love stories, follow us on Facebook and sign up for our Only Good News Newsletter. And to see ALL The Joy Story Series videos, visit

When Music and Cultural Heritage Combine, You Get INTEMPO

In a sun-filled church in Stamford, Connecticut, a small group of young students sit with their musical instruments. Among them are many instruments you'd expect to see in a classroom—like violins and guitars—and also several that you may have never seen before, like the South American Charango and a Caribbean steel drum. That would give you your first hint that you're not looking at a standard music class. This is an INTEMPO class.
