Introducing Sanjana & Yash
"Yash and I have always known of each other but we were just mere acquaintances and had a lot of common friends," Sanjana Thapa told us as she recounted her love story with Yash, "He was working in New York and I was here so we would bump into each other occasionally. Until one day, we bumped into one another once again. However, this time, something was different."
After returning to India for good, Yash Amit Nanavati gladly slid into Sanjana's DMs after bumping into her, "It started with him asking me about a certain food picture I had posted. After that, we never stopped talking to each other."
"I remember on the first date we literally sat and spoke for 5 hours till the last person walked out the door as if we were two old friends who'd known each other forever. So, I'd say it was just so easy, simple and real with him from the beginning. He's my best friend and just gets me in every possible way."
The couple's gorgeous wedding was held at the stunning and regal Alila Fort Bishangarh with all the functions drenched in local traditions with the right touch of modernity.
Intimate Mehendi Ceremony
