Raman and Ramon’s wedding was not only extravagant, it was also unique – with their thoughtful families and friends coming together to help them rejoice the best day of their lives with a lot of love, enjoyment & creativity! The Beautiful Proposal! On December 24th, 2013, there was a Christmas Eve dinner at Ramon’s parents’ house, where everybody that came was supposed to help decorate the Christmas tree. Everybody was having a good time, and they were all waiting to hear one particular song to be played – This is Love by William - at which point they knew a surprise was going to take place. Ramon was feeding me various ornaments to put on the tree and I was busy finding spots for them while dancing in place to the music. At one point instead of feeding me an ornament, Ramon got down on one knee, held my hand and proposed to me. Believe it or not, my first words were… “I wish you would’ve told me, I could’ve dressed better!” Once the laughter subsided and Ramon asked the question again, I did say “YES!” and that started the next chapter of our lives together.

The Beautiful Proposal! Alisha shared, "In 2013 I flew to England for my cousin’s wedding and wasn’t too excited about being away from Glen for more than a month. A few days before the wedding, my mums phone rang and it was an unfamiliar UK number but the voice made me ecstatic. Glen planned the surprise with my parents and flew down for the wedding, ever since he’s been a bag of surprises. Since Glen is a huge football fan and his favorite team is Manchester United, he surprised me with tickets to a Manchester Chelsea game at old Trafford. There, the tour guide showed us the time capsule which is located pitch side which stores the club memorabilia. After taking the usual pictures at the pitch side, I turned around to leave and get myself some first aid and noticed Glen wasn’t by my side and instead he was calling me back to the pitch. By this time I was absolutely infuriated because of the pain, but when I turned around I couldn’t comprehend what was happening. He was on one knee on the capsule and had what looked like a ring in this hand. I was gob smacked. I was so shocked I remember saying WHAT twice when he asked me to marry him and then the third time realized what he was saying before saying YES; I couldn’t stop giggling after that. After getting engaged we drove down to the cliffs of Dover and did our save the date shoot."

People say, you don’t have to find love, one fortunate day love will find you and life would be more than beautiful. For, Nupur and Kaushik, love planned a different way, the two met 11 years ago, when they were just 16. The Beautiful Proposal! Nupur shares, “In Jan 2015, he told, we are going to Thailand for a surprise holiday. We reached the resort at Khao Lak and after some rest, Kaushik asked me to get dressed for dinner. After getting dressed, we had a limo, come to pick us up where I was served with roses and champagne. After driving for a bit we landed in the middle of a jungle. I was a bit scared, but when I walked ahead a bit with torchlight I saw a slope lit up with candles. Kaushik had arranged 500 candles on a slope in the middle of a jungle beside a waterfall. He had also arranged a chef to cook my favorite dishes live. He then went down on his knees, spoke about our 11 years and popped the question with a ring. I was definitely surprised, as I didn’t expect him to be so old school after 11 years, but who doesn’t want a proposal like this. It was the best day ever”.
