”Toni and I met first time in 2010 in the nightlife during Christmas. I was out with my friend and she kept talking to men that I didn’t know. The pub was full so that there wasn’t any seats so I wanted to move on. I was just moving on when one of the boys told me I could sit on the lap of the ”hammer.” I was amused and sat on the lap of a happy looking guy. I lost my into the moment. We got to know each other, specially talking about Aki Kaurismäki’s movies. I remember how excited I was of the chemistry we shared and I was impressed on his knowledge of movies. Back then I was studying movies in Stockholm, Sweden.
It took over six months from our first meeting that we contacted each other. He had been on my mind but I hadn’t reached out since I was living in different country. It seemed that Toni hadn’t got me out of his mind either. So he made the first romantic suggestion – he poked me on Facebook. We started on chatting threw nights and from those moments I knew I had a crush on him.” – Laura the bride
”When I met Laura, I remember thinking about how can it be possible to find from a small place like Huittinen a woman who speaks hours and hours movies by Aki Kaurismäki. Talking with her was really comfortable. I remember that when our night ended the separation started to bother me. Since our first meeting I kept talking about it to my friends and thought about her. Even it took half a year I decided to make the move. We we’re on our way to a music festival and on the long car ride I started to talk about her again. I decided to poke her profile on Facebook. That’s how we starting chatting for hours and hours. Those where the times when I noticed I had a crush on her.
From the start Laura and I have shared the same humour and we kept laughing for hours. We also share special connection for each other. She’s really thoughtful and a kind person. Laura is also the sound of common sense when I might easily get impulsive in getting into things.” -Toni the groom
”From the start I was impressed on Toni’s passion in movies and music. When I got to know him more, I realised how genuine and caring he is. He’s confident and at the same polite. He makes me laugh a lot and we share fun moments together. From our future I expect lots of laughing, happy moments and getting our wishes to come true -getting married was first of them. I also wish that we will face the troubles together as we have before.” -Laura
”While Laura’s first visit to my home we had already been chatting for a while. We spent an amazing weekend together and when I drove her to the harbour so she could go back to Sweden, I knew I wanted to be with her forever.” – Toni
