How did you and your fiancé meet?

We met at a party the first week of medical school, found ourselves in the same friend group and became great friends, then started dating.

 

What do you love most about your partner?

Mina is the most beautiful and caring person I have ever met in my entire life and is always the person to put other people before herself.

 

How did he propose?

He reserved an entire wine cellar room in a restaurant and proposed after dinner, while completely surprising her because she had thought she was the one planning all of the events during the day.

 

What was your inspiration for the engagement photos?

Mina always wanted to have someone there to capture the moment Evan proposed, and the amazing wine cellar at La Famiglia Ristorante was a perfect backdrop.

(Have you started wedding planning) If so, how has your experience been so far?

We are just in the beginning idea phase, but Mina has been planning her wedding since she was a little girl.

 

Share some quirky facts about you.

We are both graduating medical school this year and will be beginning our residencies this July.

 

How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship?

We knew we were meant for each other within the first few months of our relationship. We realized we’ve never had a friend like each other and never could be bored when we were together.

 

Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

He reserved an entire wine cellar room in a restaurant and proposed after dinner, while completely surprising her because she had thought she was the one planning all of the events during the day.

 

We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

He had had the ring for several months after it was made and picked it up in India when her parent’s went there for a family vacation.
