We’ve known each other since we were kids as family friends. But somehow, we hadn’t met for a couple of years until 2014. By now, both of us had grown up. The only times we would meet is at the extended family get togethers. Whenever we would meet, there was some form of a powerful connection. We would sit in the corner and talk about everything under the sun. Those were times he and I both looked forward to.
In the summer of 2016, we both were going to New York for different reasons but happened to be on the same flight. During this visit, we started spending more time with each other. This is when he & I both realized that it’s not just the company we were looking for but it was more.
I fell in love with him in a New York Minute. Literally, It happened so suddenly, in the middle of a chaotic store, while he was standing there waiting in a never ending queue to buy something that I wanted. I stood there and knew he was the one and I just couldn’t stop smiling!
What followed was a beautiful journey through New York. Two romantics, strolling through the city, discovering the magic of this place.
Obviously, New York became extra special for us and we had to do the pre-wedding photo shoot here. We chose the quintessential spots. From the Rockefeller center to Brooklyn bridge, the Empire State building and the Central Park. We walked around the whole day trying to get these beautiful shots.
We were totally glad we did. There isn’t a better way to create memories then capturing them in photographs that mean so much. We wanted the day and night both, since it was every day and night that we spent together that brought us closer.
Towards the end of it, I was so cold I looked like Rudolph and had to be hauled to the nearest Pizza place. It was worth it, the pictures came out exactly as I had imagined!
Here is Anushree’s version of the love story, and for Ritvik, well you can see the love in his eyes!
Presenting the newest couple – Anushree & Ritvik!
“Now you’re In New York, Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, There’s nothin’ you can’t do…..”
Falling in love with each other between conversations.
…While the world gently passed by!
In the middle of chaos, they seemed to have found each other.
She wore a white lace dress and being the gentleman that he is, he wore a suit.
Two lovers standing by waters, bridges and buildings holding each other.
Smiling because they are stuck forever. Smiling because they want to.
With the Brooklyn Bridge behind, discovering one new place at a time. She in red and he, in his dapper suit.
Dancing seems ideal in the middle of the street.
…And everywhere else!
His looks at her and charms his way through!
Just the two of them in the spotlight!
Embracing each other under the breezy weather. Makes us want the same, fuzzy feeling.
Just them, and their silhouettes with the carousel of dreams behind.
We cannot wait to see the wedding pictures that is scheduled to happen on the 25th November of this year!
So much love to you Anushree & Ritvik!
