Woody Allen, will you come to our Wedding?Posted: April 4, 2012
My wedding is this October, and my fiance and I thought it would be awesome if Woody Allen would attend. I figured that since Woody Allen and I have similar taste in places we love to visit, maybe he’d enjoy our wedding in Florence. Above is a photo of, the Villa di Maiano, where we are getting married.
I’m sure its a coincidence, but it seems like Woody Allen is following us around. First we visited Paris last year in February. Then a few months later, the Woody Allen movie “Midnight In Paris” was released. Next we visited Florence and Rome, and now there are trailers out for a Woody Allen movie titled “To Rome With Love”. I’m not sure what to think, but I know I’m going to see “To Rome With Love” when it comes out. If my fiance and I show up as extras in the movie, I’ll know this all wasn’t a coincidence.
Celebrities and the famous will rarely go to such low affairs as a fan’s wedding or birthday, but it can happen. A couple in England thought, wouldn’t it be nice if the queen were to attend? So they sent the queen a wedding invitation, and to their surprise, the queen showed up at the end of the ceremony! Needless to say, the couple was excited but shocked. I personally agree with the groom when he said it was “one of the best presents you could wish for”.
You may know that from my previous posts, I’m a Woody Allen fan, and absolutely loved “Midnight in Paris”. How great would he be if he just appeared at the humble villa we are renting for the ceremony and reception? I have to admit, the budget is a bit tight since we are paying for the wedding ourselves, but I would not turn down such a guest.
A wise man once said “Ninety percent of life is just showing up.” That wise man was you, Woody Allen. Use some of that 90% on us and we’ll have a uniquely spectacular day.
Below are some of our favorite moments in Rome.
