"I know that I struggle sometimes with showing my emotions...and because of that I vow to try and express how I feel to you in the most creative and ludicrous ways."

A groom who said he's not one to get emotional decided to express himself in a different way in his wedding vows: an epic mash-up of love songs.

Jared Basham married his wife, Kyndra, on Saturday, and he had a surprise in store for her.

He told BuzzFeed News he decided to do the song because he knew he "had to do something off the wall and memorable."

"While she was deployed [in the Air Force] I would serenade her with my terrible singing voice over Skype and it would just make her whole day," he said. "The choice was clear."

When it was time for Jared to say his vows, he started off pretty normal. He told Kyndra that he knows he isn't the most expressive guy...

"I know that I struggle sometimes with showing my emotions...and because of that I vow to try and express how I feel to you in the most creative and ludicrous ways."

He also vowed to express himself at "inopportune" times, like during his wedding vows. He then broke into his song-and-dance routine, starting with "You're the One That I Want" from Grease.

He really channels a young John Travolta here.

And then shows he def could have been in a boy band.

Even the groomsmen got to join in during his rendition of the All-4-One classic "I Swear."

But Jared's star really shone when he broke out into Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."

You can feel the passion through the screen.

Safe to say, the bride got his message.

Kyndra told BuzzFeed News that she was smiling so hard during the vows that her cheeks hurt.

"His vows reflected his personality exactly. They couldnt have been more perfect...Unique vows for a original guy," she said.

A friend of Jared's, Shea Burns, told BuzzFeed News the groom had told him about the vows and asked him to film them. Burns later uploaded the vows to YouTube.

Burns said he wasn't surprised that his friend chose such an unconventional way to express himself."He has always been a really outgoing guy, if he had just performed his vows normally it wouldn't have been fitting, it's just not him," he wrote on Reddit.

Correction

The newlyweds told BuzzFeed News that Jared was actually singing. An earlier version of this post misstated he was lip-synching.
