2010 Suzuki Kizashi as Wedding Limo
June 28, 2010
I attended a surprise wedding on Friday night. See, the bride and groom invited a small group of friends and family onto a yacht in Marina del Rey to celebrate their engagement. However, the arrangement of the upper deck's chairs quickly gave away that we were actually attending their wedding. It was a lovely, casual affair.
As we were disembarking the boat, the groom mentioned that he needed to call the car service to drive he and his bride the mile and change to the Ritz Carlton where we'd all be continuing the party. I then said, half-jokingly, "Would you like a ride in a Suzuki instead?"
To my surprise, the groom looked at me somewhat intrigued -- I'm guessing partly because he liked the idea of not paying for the car service and partly because of the word "Suzuki." At that point I felt the need to qualify that it was "Suzuki's new midsize sedan. It's actually really quite nice."
"Sure man, if you don't mind."
Of course I didn't, and thus, our long-term 2010 Suzuki Kizashi was called into service as a wedding limo. Who saw that coming?
Now, their wedding departure was hardly on par with My Best Friend's Wedding, where Cameron Diaz and Dermot Mulroney exit through a driveway lined with fireworks in a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, but they clearly didn't care. I must say they were nevertheless surprised and pleased by our humble Kizashi.
I guess it's a good thing I didn't get the Miata for the weekend.
