In honor of engaged couples sharing their #justsaidyes moments with us on Instagram, we just had to share this adorable proposal. This man filmed his own version of the “Rude” music video and played it for his girlfriend at the local movie theater, which happened to be filled with their family and friends. After leaving the theater for a few minutes, he reappeared to ask her the question of a lifetime. Between the amount of planning and her reaction, good luck not tearing up!
