We love it when we get to hear a couples story of how they met, how he proposed and of course their wedding day stories below is our conversation with Payal and Ravish telling their wedding stories in their own words.
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was “the one”?
I met Ravish on Dil Mil in June 2017, he had a witty Seinfeld quote which made me smile, so I swiped right!
I was falling for Ravish pretty early on in our relationship. I was able to genuinely be myself around him. I knew he was the one for me when we took a ski trip together and I caught the flu while there. He took care of me in every possible way by being by my side, bringing me food, keeping me comfortable, picking up my meds and constantly checking up on me. It was then, I knew that I truly loved him and that I see myself with him forever.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ravish and I decided to go to Montreal in October 2018. He had a whole weekend planned with exploring the city. I anticipated there may be a proposal in the planning however he told me before the trip that the ring isn’t ready and so I didn’t think anything of it thereafter. On Saturday morning, we had brunch at the Maggie Oakes, then we went up to Mont Royal, it’s a park that overlooks the city of Montreal. Since it was October the view of fall trees was spectacular. After a few minutes of walking around and taking pictures. Ravish said let me take a picture of you overlooking the city and when I turned around he was down on his knee. I was surprised and elated.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind? Our first look, my walk down the aisle, my dance with my dad and our first dance. Our families were so excited for our wedding. At Garba, we had 8 performances filled with my parents, my siblings, my cousins and nieces, and nephews. Ravish’s family did a whole family dance and a cousin’s dance.
One of the most memorable dances was seeing my Mom’s and Dad’s siblings do a couple dance to all the old songs such as Ude Jab Jab Zulfen Teri from Naya Daur, Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye from Jurm. My guests loved the venue we chose, it was a golf course with a beautiful landscape and we were blessed with the perfect weather.
