Sanjana And Rahul’s Romantic Proposal At The Pier In Cancun

February 12, 2021

Love is in the air and today we’re excited to share Sanjana and Rahul’s love story! Read on to see how they met and what advice they have for couples.

When did you get engaged?

We got engaged on August 31, 2019, which was Labor Day weekend.

What was your proposal story?

Rahul suggested we make plans for Labor Day Weekend and spontaneously booked a trip for us to go to Cancun. I am normally such a planner so I was completely thrown off but just went with the flow. On our second day there, he told me he made a lunch reservation for us. On the way to lunch, we stopped at the pier and the next thing I knew, he was down on one knee, asking me to marry him. Of course, I said YES!

What is the best or most frustrating part of your wedding planning process so far?

The most frustrating part of our wedding planning process so far has just been that planning a wedding during the pandemic is really tough. We had an engagement party planned which we had to cancel and our plans to go wedding shopping in India got canceled as well. While it’s been hard due to all the uncertainty, the best part has been just enjoying engaged life and spending lots of time together. We cannot wait to finally get married!

What advice would you give to someone who is ready to propose?

The best advice I would give would be to take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy what will be one of the most beautiful moments of your life!

Were there any resources that helped you during proposal planning or wedding planning?

Rahul planned the proposal all by himself – he asked my parents for permission, picked out the ring, booked the trip, and got a photographer to capture the special moments! I was so impressed! For wedding planning, we did a lot of venue and vendor research online before reaching out. We have a coordinator who will be helping us with all the finishing touches.
