Charmi & Sachin

How She Thinks

The road to finding true love is never easy but once your on it you should enjoy every moment of it. You will learn new things, see new scenes, and of course there will always be bumps along the way...but who likes a smooth ride anyway...

Sachin and I met when we were small kids and we met again when he first came to America and started out as great friends. YOU KNOW the inseparable friendship and I guess that is the reason why we still are friends after fourteen years.

We never planned on getting married or thought about marriage but you know what they say life works in weird ways. You always end up with the person you were meant to be with.

How This Happened

I admit it. I get a little mushy and sappy when I talk about her. She really is pretty amazing. Now that doesn’t mean she is perfect.we have our shares of disagreements and she can drive me crazy some days. But I always known how lucky I am to have her. Charmi and I have not lived an ordinary love story. From when we met to the joys and challenges we have faced. Our story is unique.

One moment you're sniggering besides each other in class, and the next you’re staring into each other’s eyes, for our relationship, it took decades and a bunch of experience with different ones on either side before a light bulb goes off in our heads and we realized that this is - OMG - THE ONE’’.

How We Met

I did not expect my future husband to walk through the doors of my house but YES this is exactly how we met. I remember the first time we started talking which was at my kitchen table. He was sitting across from me as we discussed my freshmen year in high school. At the time I did not think anything of it. I never thought this guy would be the one I ended up marrying.

After our conversations I realized that sooner or later we will end up being friends. As I expected, shortly after, we became amazing friends and we always have such a great conversations that never seemed to finish. We always had so much to talk about and soon after we started enjoying each other's company.

Life can be so unpredictable you never know what is going to happen at any given moment. As I have stated before life is full of surprises and it works in weird ways. This is why I do not take anything so seriously because what is meant for you will always find its way sooner or later...

The Proposal

If you have noticed a lot of new engagement ring pictures in your social media feed lately that is because it is an official proposal. To celebrate, here is a roundup of our favorite engagement story that made us smile, and reach for a tissue naturally.

I was ecstatic when I found the photograph of us together when we were kids. Looking at that photograph I instantly realized that God made our JODI in heaven.

The proposal sets the stage for our incredible journey towards becoming husband and wife. From a carefully orchestrated and spontaneous proposal so I came up with this idea that I have never seen before to ask if she'd make me the happiest man on earth and be my wife.

She wanted to go visit the Pink City last time she visited India, so when I finally had a chance to propose. I told her lets go to travelling and I made all the bookings for the air balloon and when we actually went to the pink city I asked her if she wanted to take the air balloon ride, and she was excited.

So the earliest morning on the summer day in the Pink City, I took her for a ride in the hot air balloon and proposed to her and expressed my feelings about how I wanted to spend every moment of my life with her. AND SHE SAID YES !!!
