And for how we can’t get over the exquisiteness of this soiree, we’re sure it’s going to have you as floored as well.

About The Couple

Their Tale

Shania and Arvind met each other through their parents. Their parents have been friends for the last 20 years and he had always found Shania pretty. When he told his sister about this, a communication chain ensued with his sister telling their mum who then told this to Shania’s mom who gave Shania’s number to them when Arvind ended up texting her. They then started talking and well, it clearly worked out!

While they love travelling together they also love staying in and spending time with their families and pets or watching a movie or cooking together.

The Proposal

Shania and Arvind had been going ring shopping together a couple of times because they were getting their pair custom-made. But it was in March 2019 when the two were outfit shopping in India when he proposed to her in Golden Temple, Amritsar taking her by surprise.
