The mystery that typically surrounds a masquerade ball is what makes it so thrilling! At Chirag and Aayushi’s masked party, that air of thrill was accompanied by romance and excitement. The dramatic moments were captured by WeddingSutra Favorite – Movie’ing Moments, and here, bride-to-be Aayushi shares some highlights.
The couple were introduced to each other by their respective parents. Ayushi, who believes in destiny, shares, “Chirag and my meeting was written in the stars. I believe it was the divine forces that brought us together in 2018. We crossed paths in London in 2014, Dubai in 2015, Paris in 2016, but surprisingly we didn’t meet even once until the time was right”
Their love story began when they started chatting over the phone before they even met. “They say that in an arranged marriage couples fall in love after the wedding. However, for us, deep emotions made their way into our hearts when we connected over phone conversations. Owing to the time difference between Belgium and Mumbai we spent many sleepless nights answering over a thousand questions that both of us had. We knew that we had found our soulmates in each other, and when we finally met in person on August 2, 2018, we knew that we were born to be with each other.”
That significant first meeting led to an exciting masquerade party at the Mahalakshmi Race Course which was hosted for the youngsters in their families and friend circles. A grand entrance was decorated with foliage and large mask cut-outs that led guests to the venue with a stage and an LED dance floor. This was where Chirag had planned to pull off his surprise proposal to Aayushi!
Chirag, who is also a Punjab singer, intended to croon and serenade Aayushi when she arrived. Once guests started making their way to the venue, music filled the air as Chirag started singing ‘Ban Ja Rani’ (Be My Queen) for his fiance. He escorted her to the dance floor and when the dance was over, he went down on one knee and slipped a ring on her finger.
The night was filled with joy and excitment as the festivities got underway. The moments were captured by Movie’ing Moments in frames where the chemistry between the couple feels very tangible. Chirag and Aayushi will also have the lovely video to relive this proposal evening again and again as time goes by.
