Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sunny planned the most magical proposal and I was blown away at every step and every detail. Here is the story of the proposal told by Sunny:
I had always known that I wanted to propose to Dhwani in Boston, the city where we first met.
Our first date encompassed several meals, a visit to the New England Aquarium, a stop at a speakeasy, and even included a trip to Chinatown. It spanned all throughout the city and we ended up spending entire day together because neither of us wanted it to end.
Our first encounter and one of our favorite shows to watch together, Taskmaster, were the inspirations behind the proposal.
I recreated elements of our first date by taking Dhwani to each of the spots we visited on that day.
She had to solve tasks (similar to puzzles) in order to get the clue for the next place to go. We started the tasks in the morning and timed it to reach a restaurant by lunchtime, where we coincidently had dinner on our first date.
After lunch, I asked Dhwani to take a walk with me at nearby Fan Pier Park that overlooks both the Boston Marina and downtown. There I gave her the final task and asked her to marry me.
After she said “yes,” we drove back to Connecticut, and I surprised her once more with a small gathering of family and friends at home to celebrate.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Planning a wedding in the middle of COVID was hectic and stressful. I didn’t have a vision of what my perfect wedding would look like but my fiancé and I focused more on what we wanted the experience to be for us and our guests, and disused each step with each other and our parents to make sure we accomplished that goal. We were thankful to find a group of vendors we trusted and most of our vendors were fantastic (besides our venue) and were thankful to have a solid team who we were on the same page with and trusted to manage the event while we were enjoying our wedding with our guests.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding was in May of 2021, a few months after the vaccines had rolled out and it was the first large event that most of our friends and family had attended since COVID first began. We are so thankful for each of them for choosing to spend it with us. Being surrounded by loved ones with good food, drinks, and music in a beautiful city after a long period of isolation was exciting and liberating. We also heard that the local Leopold's Ice Cream we served during the wedding was also a favorite!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
In regards to wedding planning: Don’t be afraid to ask for help and ask questions. To me, the whole wedding planning process felt secretive but I reached out to a lot of my friends who were married to ask for advice on vendors, ideas, prices, suggestions, etc and found it was immensely helpful. Also, don’t be shy to ask questions before signing any contracts! Once you sign it, you’re locked in so ask all of your questions beforehand.
That is all for today darlings, come back tomorrow for more!
