Their story started more than 10 years ago. It started when Bogdan found himself in the same group of friends with Lucia. We are not sure if this is where he got his nickname “kiwi”, but one thing’s for sure: many more years of teasing and secret love would pass until, in 2006, Prince Charming would declare his feelings towards Snow White. However, you’d be wrong if you thought the princess would open the gates of her castle so easily. She probably had a few more fire-breathing dragons guarding her, because according to Bogdan, there were some “diplomatic negotiations still to be carried out before they could start a “happily ever after” kind of relationship, that culminated with a fairytale wedding we had the honour to tape.
After we obtained the above information from Bogdan, we felt that there was something still missing, and I asked him if there was anything more he’d like to share with us, maybe something funny or unusual from their relationship, and not surprisingly, the first thing that came to his mind was related to the way he decided to propose to Lucia.
Being a very special moment, he thought that it would be best to blindfold her until they would arrive at a designated spot, where A HOT AIR BALOON (that’s right folks, Kiwi somehow forgot to mention this in his initial story :P) was waiting for them. Anyway, things didn’t go exactly as planned, cause being blindfolded in a moving car meant that it wasn’t long before Lucia got sick. Don’t worry, apparently she got well just in time to admire the most beautiful sunset high above the earth. As Kiwi put it, “just like in the movies”, especially after so many years.
Many months later, they would ask us to participate in the funniest, most amusing wedding of them all. And, oh boy, we had a laugh :))
By the end of the day, we each received a caricature, either as a fridge magnet or as a hand-drawn exaggerated portrait of ourselves. Or both. Now it’s finally time to give them something back, their wedding video memories.
Kiwi & Lucia, we hope that you’ll watch the DVDs in greater numbers each year, if you know what we mean :P
