14 Million Watched This Flashmob Proposal - Now The Long-Awaited Joy Story Wedding Is Here

This Flashmob Marriage Proposal was seen by over 14 Million and generated an outpouring of love and emotion from the LGBTQ and straight communities alike! 18 months and 18 episodes later, the Joy Story wedding is finally here!

After meeting Jared Marinelli at a JoyRide Cycling class, and eventually falling in love, Adam Keller plotted the perfect secret flash mob cycling class wedding proposal.

When they met, Jared Marinelli was Adam's Cycling instructor. After bonding over their love for fitness and cycling, not only did Adam get a job at Joy Ride, but they fell in love! Both being cycling instructors, Adam convinced Jared it was all being filmed for their studio's new marketing promotion. Little did Jared know it was being recorded for Adam's highly charged and emotional proposal.

Adam planned the TOP-SECRET flash mob cycling class proposal that included all his closest friends and family members to help him pop the question, "Will you marry me?" Jared immediately said yes and they both became a 'Joy Story' as the video went viral. The worldwide response launched the couple into stardom and led to the development and production of a digital web series following Adam & Jared, as they planned the ultimate wedding of the year!

Fast–forward to September 2017 and both Adam and Jared (#TeamJadam) have finally reached the next chapter of their story – married life! Stay tuned for the exclusive JADAM WEDDING Video world premiere footage coming to you on Wednesday, September 27th.

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.
