Dean Smith was certain he wanted to marry girlfriend Jennifer Kessel for at least a year, so he proposed on video for 365 straight days to prove it.

Smith's video compilation was watched by Jennifer on an Aruba beach on her birthday last January, according to an ABC 13 news report.

In the video, Smith is seen doing a variety of activities while proposing, to keep the video lively. On each day, he holds a whiteboard asking Kessel to marry him in a variety of ways.

The last video proposal was taken from the balcony of the couple's hotel and tells Kessel to "turn around." It's then that she sees Smith on the beach with his final whiteboard.
