Love Actually: We Transcribed The #TheWanForAnne Proposal Video—And We Cannot Move On!

Love Actually: We Transcribed The #TheWanForAnne Proposal Video—And We Cannot Move On!

Privacy remained to be the reason why power couple and big-time multimedia personalities Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff whisked away to New Zealand for their union. (We heard it was practically ‘no snaps ‘at the actual ceremony!) And we’re betting it’s also the same reason why Erwan, despite a top-tier social media influencer, has kept his proposal video prepared for Anne in December last year just for his bride’s eyes.

A day before their big day, however, the blogger-cum-vlogger decided to give the public a peek into the last two minutes of the same video. The clip, garnering around 90,000 views as of publishing time, documents the couple in many of their getaways and ends it with Paulo Coelho. It has the groom as the calm voiceover and The Flaming Lips's "Do You Realize??" in the background—and it’s all sorts of romantic!

“It’s funny how you never truly know what you want until it’s right there in front of you, breathing hard, almost hitting me in the face. A blind man realizing that he needs color in his life. It’s like a slap that wakes you in the middle of the night when you’re all alone in bed, you don’t know where it comes from yet it feels so real and important.

Sometimes, things just makes sense. Now I know that's an oversimplification of what love is—it fits and it hurts at the same time, the true duality of the universe, the want of another person to go through this crazy journey with you. This is not the most fantastic story ever told. No wars were battled, nor crusades undertaken, but its realness makes it the truest tale. Two people who happen to find each other and fought hard to end up together.

The Alchemist taught us this, that ‘it was the pure language of the world. It required no explanation just as the universe needed none as it travels though endless time. What the boy felt at that moment what that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, would no need for words, she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it than anything in the world… And when two such people encounter each other and their eyes, meet the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment and that incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world without such love, one’s dream would have no meaning.’

So now what do these dreams hold? That’s for another time.”
