Michelle and Amar

how we met

Michelle and I met in college when we were actually competitive ballroom dance partners. While we were very close friends at the time, we actually did not start dating until about 5 years later at the end of medical school. Our journey fortunately took us both to Cincinnati for our residency training. Our relationship has been an incredible story of two cultures intertwining and a genuine friendship blossoming.

how they asked

The entire trip to Maui was actually a surprise for my fiancé. We were out in the Bay Area for a work conference and the plan was to stay out West for a few extra days after the conference. I told Michelle that we were going to LA for four days, but as we were checking into the kiosk at the airport, I told her I had a secret for her and the tickets to Maui popped up on the screen at that moment. I proposed to her later that night after we arrived in Maui after our Flytographer concierge and photographer suggested Po’olenalena Beach for the location. It was a quiet, “locals” beach that was very intimate. I proposed around sunset and she said YES! We could not be happier with how things went.
