I was lucky enough to have gotten an invitation to this "movie". Unfortunately, Mica and I were off to our first-ever Rebellious Brides shoot so I sadly couldn't make it. But watching this video, I'm sorta, kinda glad I didn't go---why? Because the video alone made me TEARY-EYED! What more if I was there?!?! But seriously, I wish I had witnessed it. The energy in the movie house reflected in the video.
What's even better than the proposal video that you are about to watch, is that the groom even wrote a write-up for this blog feature--and nothing beats a guy who cares enough to do these things ;)
When: Nov. 5, 2011
Where: The Podium, Cinema 2 (Puss in Boots)
It took me about 3 months to plan everything. Kitin (Kristine Flores) knew that my family will be out of town on that day so she had nothing planned yet on the weekend. About 3 days before the event, Kat, one of her kabarkadas from the States texted her saying that she has to talk to her and Ria (her best friend in the Phils) about a drastic decision that she was about to make. I told Ria to tell Kitin that her only available day was on Nov 5 because of her very hectic week. Since Ria works for Sun Cellular, they will be having a block screening for a client on that day and they can just stay for the movie and call Kat after.
As they entered the cinema, all the lights were out and the trailers were already starting. My video was projected after the trailers revealing that I was about to propose to her. When the lights were turned on, she realized that the whole cinema has been blocked to house all her family and friends and that I was not out of town after all. That was when I asked her to be my wife. :)
I made a video summary of what happened, including the surprise video I did. Just click the link below:
