Bumble! He was traveling through town on work. Coincidentally, we were both from the same area but had never met. We were long distance for about 4 months and then he moved to be with me.
Describe your Engagement
He asked at home. Prior to this, he had been talking about our wedding and when it would happen, and we had picked a date for an engagement party which turned into small wedding.
Personal or Handmade Details
The bride used to work for the rental/event designer company, so naturally, had to collaborate on the decor and look. Being in the event industry, it was different being on the other side.
The bride wore the Groom’s grandmother’s wedding ring, on the other hand, it was gifted to her from the Groom’s family after the engagement.
