Twinkle and Dipesh
How We Met
My fiancé, Dipesh, and I met at Cornell University, where we were both on the same Indian Folk Dance team. Last weekend was our 7 year dating anniversary and he said he had planned something special. Boy, was special an understatement of how Dipesh pulled off one of the most elaborate proposals in Battery Park, NYC! Below is a photo frame I made that provides a glimpse of our relationship. P.S. Our couple name is Dinkle (Dipesh+Twinkle)
How He Asked
The day started on a private yacht he had charted in downtown Manhattan. We joked and danced to Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’ on the yacht passing iconic landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. While the boat turned back towards the breathtaking views of the World Trade Center, he suddenly blindfolded me as we approached the marina. Unable to see, all I could hear was thunderous cheering and claps. As he took off my blindfold, I was stunned to find over 70 of our family and friends standing on a bridge in front of us holding signs that read “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
With the boat coming to a halt, Bruno Mars’ song ‘Marry Me’ came on and he got down on one knee. He popped the question and through many tears of joy, I said “YES”! I am thrilled to have met my Prince Charming, my best-friend, and I am still in disbelief over this fairytale proposal. This proposal means a lot to Dipesh and me, and we would love to share our journey with everyone! I have included a handful of pictures of our special day. I think you will see that my face says it all!
