How They Met
The couple’s love story began in 2010 when they bumped into each other at a college event and ended up becoming the best of friends. Fast forward to the year 2015; after five years of friendship, Chesta and Praval fell in love. That same year, in 2018, Praval finally went down on his knees to propose marriage to Chesta.
The couple kickstarted their wedding festivities with a striking pre-wedding photoshoot in regal Rajasthan.
