Between she and her husband, Kayla Gottfried was probably the most disappointed when they lost their wedding video in 2007. Actually, they never even got to watch the video due to a technical glitch. They had taken the tape of their wedding ceremony to a video editing store to be transferred into a disc, but the editor gave them the distressing news- the video had been accidentally erased.
The couple was disheartened, but there was nothing they could do. For several years, they lost hope of getting their wedding video.
However, two months to their 14th wedding anniversary, the unexpected happened. A friend of Drew’s reached out to him, with a message that he had found Drew and Kayla’s wedding tape!
Drew was very delighted at this unexpected news. He did not tell Kayla, as he formulated a plan to pleasantly break the news of the newfound wedding tape.
Drew then decided he would ‘show,’ rather than tell her about it. So on their 14th wedding anniversary, two months after his discovery, Drew coaxed Kayla into going to a theatre to watch one of her favourite movies. But unknown to her, Drew had rented out the theatre for his amazing plan.
Kayla was definitely surprised that she and her husband were the only ones in the theatre, but not suspecting a thing, she went with the flow.
The ‘movie’ began, and when her wedding video began to play, bold and bright on the screen, she went into a state of shock and delight.
Drew described it as “pure happiness.” After shedding tears of elation and wonder, Kayla gave her husband a warm embrace, as they continued viewing their wedding video for the first time ever.
Drew posted a clip on TikTok and many people are commending his romantic gesture. He could have decided to take the tape home and have them watch it, but he went the extra mile to rent a theatre to make it more special for her.
First uploaded to TikTok on July 20, the video has been viewed over 3.5 million times and garnered thousands of comments.
