MANILA, Philippines – Solenn Heussaff and her soon-to-be husband Nico Bolzico strolled the streets of Paris, France – La Ville Lumière, the City of Lights – in a new romantic pre-wedding video.
Famed wedding filmmaker Jason Magbanua shot the vintage-looking video for the couple as they made their way from the square in front of the Musée du Louvre, down the River Seine, and then onto the Notre Dame and the Pont des Arts bridge. His montage depicted Solenn and Nico in tender, candid moments – even with pigeons fluttering around them.
The filmmaker also described the couple as the "easiest" to shoot, and said that what stood out from them was what went on between takes.
He recounted in his YouTube caption that Solenn was "hesitant" to have her handbag carried by anyone – even her close friends: "She didn't want to put a burden on anybody. She didn't want to oblige anybody. I know her friends would do anything for her, the least of which carry her bag during a pre wedding photoshoot. But Solenn was apologetic and half embarrassed at the mere suggestion."
"That's the kind of person she is. Polite, humble, never the diva. You see past the beauty, the talent, the intelligence, and you find something more beautiful inside."
He continued to talk about Nico, too: "We were walking down the right bank and out of nowhere, a bus pulled up and a mother with her baby on a stroller tried to get on it with much difficulty. In one fell swoop, Nico scooped down and grabbed the stroller aiding the young mother."
"It happened so fast that the time I took to process what was happening in front of me, Nico was two steps ahead with his actions. A man driven with inherent kindness and selflessness. It was second nature to him."
"And then you step back and just flat out admire them," Jason wrote. "These two? They good."
