Despite Kisan's initial plans to return to his hometown near Chicago after completing his studies, the depth of their connection was so compelling that he chose to stay, anchoring their love story where it all began.
Shreena and Kisan embarked on a memorable journey to the beautiful shores of Maui, Hawaii, as they celebrated Kisan's birthday.

He took Shreena to a scenic beach, guiding her to the top of the picturesque rocks to soak in the breathtaking view.
Amidst the backdrop of the ocean's grandeur, Kisan knelt down on one knee, creating a moment of sheer astonishment for Shreena.

As Shreena embarked on her bridal journey, the evocative strains of "Din Shangna" accompanied her every step. This song held a special place in her heart for years, and she couldn't fathom a more fitting soundtrack for her entrance.
For Kisan's grand arrival, they chose the ethereal notes of Louis Banks' "Flying Through the Night." This selection was inspired by Sheena's mother's cherished memories of the singer and the enchanting melody that had resonated through her formative years.
