Their Tale

A classic tale of ‘you never know how your destiny plays out’, the two were brought together to each other from two corners of the world. Aahana, who was studying in Australia, planning on never coming back to Mumbai but, eventually did, met Tarun through her best friend. Basically, Tarun’s best friend got married to Aahana’s best friend and the newly-wed couple later played cupid in bringing these two together who instantly connected as it was meant to be.

The Proposal

Aahana is a pastry chef and always wanted to a baking class at Christina Tossi’s Milk Bar. Tarun went adorably thoughtful for the proposal and did just that! He booked that private baking class, baked with her and of course, surprised her with a proposal there.
