How did you and your fiancé meet?

We met on Coffee Meets Bagel in July of 2018.


What do you love most about your partner?

Since the day we met, he has been such a positive force in my life. He is incredibly supportive and encouraging at literally ALL times of the day. He somehow always manages to put a smile on my face and make serious situations not so serious. I honestly never believed that there was such a person as a soulmate until I met the weirdo I’m going to be spending the rest of my life with.

How did he propose?

During our first date, we had brunch at Hawthorne’s and then walked along South Street before coming to Seger Park and spending hours there. For the proposal, he brought me to dinner at Hawthorne’s and recreated our first date by walking to Seger Park. As we walked by the park, “You and I” by John Legend was playing on a speaker. Then when we entered the park, he had lights, rose petals, and candles to decorate the surroundings leading up to the proposal spot. After the proposal, his two friends, my roommate, and my sister were there to surprise me. Finally, we went to Tradesman to meet with all of mine and his friends for a night of celebration and fun!


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

We are hoping to have a wedding in India with a reception in Jersey. That’s about as far as we have gotten! Clearly, there is still a lot left to plan.


How was your experience working with your proposal photographer?

Amazing! He has been the sweetest and most accommodating. During the proposal shoot at Seger Park, he had a clear vision and took great photos. John and Vanessa went above and beyond to capture various angles/poses. Overall, we were extremely happy with how everything turned out!
