How We Met
We met in November 2015 through mutual friends and had an instant connection. Just a week after we met, Himesh asked me on a date which was on my birthday. Since then we have been inseparable, dates after dates I started to realize how great he is. He’s such a genuine person and I feel like the luckiest girl to have met someone like him.
How They Asked
Himesh asked in the most romantic way I could possibly think of… what I thought was a holiday photo shoot ended up into a beautiful and well-planned proposal. We planned a trip to Tenerife, Spain as our first vacation out of country. Himesh knows how much I love pictures and capturing memories, so he gave me the idea of doing a photoshoot in Tenerife since it was too cold in Philadelphia.
I found a photographer and contacted him to do a small shoot, little did I know Himesh was contacting him and planning a surprise proposal. He planned out where the proposal would take place, during a beautiful sunset by the beach with a gorgeous setup. When the day finally came, the photographer did an amazing job acting as if nothing will happen. We were taking a few pictures as we started to walk towards the black sand beach, I saw at a distance a beautiful setup with roses and lanterns on a rug.
The photographer tells me that some models are doing a shoot on the beach (no one was there lol) but I still believed him because there was a lady waiting on the side of that setup. Apparently, she was in on this too and helped Himesh coordinate the setup months in advance. Photographer then suggested we can take a few pictures on the rug (which I thought was strange since models will be coming there and I didn’t want to get the rug dirty).
The photographer walks over the lady by the setup and asks her if we can use this space to take a picture or two. When we were on the rug with a beautiful sunset behind us, he looks into my eyes and out of the blue the song he asked me to be his girlfriend on 4 years ago starts playing at the beach.
That’s when he slowly gets on one knee and asks me to marry him! All I could think of was ‘YES!!!’ Still in disbelief how beautifully he pulled this off. Couldn’t have pictured a better proposal and so thankful for our photographers and his team for there amazing work!
