Rahul is a photographer and Nilisha, a dreamer. To give her a wedding proposal even better than what she could imagine, he put in all his thought and effort into planning the whole experience which he managed to keep a secret. The result? A beautiful proposal that will have girls wishing that someone did the same for them someday! An elated Nilisha tells us about that wonderful day.
“Every girl dreams of a special proposal, after all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime moment. And I was no different. I have always been the type of girl who lives in her dream world, but I never imagined someone would turn my dreams into a beautiful reality one day. However, Rahul did just that on May 20, 2018. The man who always makes me weak in the knees just by looking at me went down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him. Of course, I said ‘Yes!'”
“After one month of planning Rahul, tricked me into a pre-engagement photoshoot. Since he is a professional photographer, I assumed that he was excited about just another shoot like the way he always is. I had told him often that I wanted for my nails to look perfect when I get the proposal ring on my finger. However, I am not the kind of person who gets her nails done frequently, and I hate shopping. Knowing this, he smartly got my sisters to work on my wardrobe, makeup, hair, and nails. Honestly, I am so grateful for him being so thoughtful! Although he probably did that because it is likely I would have killed him is if I did not look good in the pictures or if he looked better than me!”
“After all this planning and plotting, we finally headed to the beautiful Hamilton Park in New Jersey which overlooks the New York skyline. Our photographer friend, who was involved in the scheme, asked us to pose for photos so that I would believe that the whole occasion was nothing more than a photo shoot. After a while, he asked Rahul and me to hold hands and walk to another location in the same park for some candid walk-in-the-park pictures. Rahul led me to to the spot where he had planned to propose. On reaching there, I saw this stunning setup with roses, cupcakes that spelled – ‘Will you marry me?’ as well as a wooden frame with our pictures. Even my favorite song was playing. When I looked at it from afar, I could not see our photos but could make out that that entire setup looked wonderful. I whispered to him, ‘This set up is so cute and beautiful. It looks like someone is going to get proposed to today.’ He smiled and as we got closer, he went down on one knee and pulled out a wooden box with ‘Rahul & Nilisha’ engraved on it. I jumped with surprise and excitement!”
“I asked him if this was only for the shoot and whether the box contained a ring. That’s when he produced the most striking rock from the box, and asked me, ‘Will you marry me, baby?’ For a few moments I stood until tears began rolling down my cheeks I hugged him and started to tell him how much I loved him when out of nowhere, all our friends and our families entered the scene! They started clapping and cheering and taking our videos and pictures. I stood there feeling like the happiest girl in the world, looking at him wondering how the hell did I get so lucky!”
