From Sweden To Villa Balbianello
Today I am very happy to present a service photos for a beautiful engagement “Star Wars” in Villa Balbianello Lake Como. This is the engagement story.. Roland and I met in September 1994, at mutual friends’ house. Their daughter is our goddaughter. Five years after we met, Roland came to me and said that he loved me and wanted to share my life if it was ever possible sometimes in the future, and even though he knew it was impossible, “he had to tell me, or die”.
I was married at the time and told him I couldn´t. For ten years we were good friends, and then I moved away to another city…and we were separated for ten years, where we did not speak at all, separated by a series of misunderstandings and stupid events.
Just like Padme and Anakin we did not see each other for ten years and just like them we come from different worlds where our love seemed impossible…
In June of 2013, we met again, when we were both invited to the graduation party of our goddaughter. From the moment we saw each other we were inseparable. Roland had waited for me…Exactly 20 years after we met, we bought our engagement rings in New York, in September 2014 and then in May 2015 celebrated our engagement.
The person who is most passionate about Star wars, between the two of us, is Roland. He has seen the movies many times, been to premiers in New York, visited Star wars convention in the USA dressed up as Obi One, and collects movie memorabilia. He always was fascinated by the Jedi order. But there is also an interest from me, I also loved the movies from when I grew up and knew the stories well. Roland’s favorite place in the movies has always been Naboo…and he dreamt that if he ever met me again, so we could get engaged and marry, he wanted to do it there…on the terrace of Padme’s home in Naboo i.e. Villa Balbianello.
Our engagement rings were bought at Tiffany´s in New York, from a man called Mr. Fortunate (which we think was fate, since we are very fortunate to have found each other again…). The rings are Italian, made by an Italian designer, and have the date and the word Naboo engraved. For us Italy and villa Balbianello by Lake Como, was the only place…
Like in Star Wars the good forces defeats the dark in the end, and love prevails.
The characters and movies we like best?
Movie number two, since that is the movie featuring Naboo, movie number four (the first one made) and maybe movie number five
Obi One Kenobi, especially played by Alec Guinees
Padme and Anakins lovestory…but not their fate
Yoda, for his wisdom and knowledge of the force..
