How We Met

I was at a wedding and talking to my 2 family friends about “my type” in guys. All I said was “someone who is a good person, that won’t break my heart!” They thought of Pareen immediately and showed me a picture of him. I thought he was cute and said “sure, why not?!” They texted him right away and he also thought I was cute so they gave him my phone number. After a few days of texting, Pareen was super eager to meet so he came to Richmond, VA (he’s from Raleigh, NC) and I took him to a Nelly concert as our first date..and let’s just say the rest was history!

How They Asked

Sweta Shah is from Richmond, Virginia, and Pareen Patel is from Raleigh, North Carolina. Over the last 2.5 years of knowing each other, they have split their time between Virginia and NC, as well as traveled the globe together. Due to the current pandemic, Pareen had to propose in an intimate, secluded location.

The luxurious facilities of Primland Resort, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains at the border of NC and VA, were the ideal spot. Sweta loves taking pictures and continuously teases Pareen in his inabilities to capture the moment. For their oh-so-perfect proposal on February 7, 2021, Pareen arranged a private photography class which ultimately ended up in a surprise proposal overlooking the mountains!
