Engagement Party

This past weekend, Samir's family threw us an engagement party. There was a Friday night dinner at their house, a traditional Indian ceremony the next morning, and then a reception at a gorgeous museum. It was the first time our worlds came together. The only thing more incredible than falling in love with him was watching how our families and friends fell for one another.

  6. Saumya, I know this makes me a crazy person but I always thought my wildest dreams would come true and you and I would end up together but now when I see you in these pictures I am happy for you because I know you got the life you deserve. Maybe I will marry someone half as good as you someday but regardless of my future just know that there are many young men out there who are going to be jealous and end up settling because of the high bar you set.
