“The story goes back 7 years and will feel like a cliche Bollywood act, but then again.
I am good with dates, so this is going to be accurate!
28th December 2009, I was attending my cousin brother’s wedding, I spotted this girl in an orange salwar suit with huge sunglasses! Now, when you find somebody pretty at a wedding, you’ve got to take your chance. So with all the courage I had in me, I went up to my mother to ask who she was. Let’s face it, moms know everything!
I figured that she was the bride’s cousin and we weren’t related in anyway and thus there was a ray of hope. I went forth and spoke to her and that’s how it all started!
Well, I ended up doing nothing else in that wedding but hit on Amisha. The most surprising part of all of this was, it looked like she was interested!
I took her for a drive, her cousins insisted on accompanying us. I asked for her number. and got her brother’s instead! A lot of antics followed, all in vain.
The wedding got over, she left without a goodbye.
I finally did get her number soon after, I wasn’t going to let her go! The texting began soon after, I met her in Delhi after four months on 2nd May 2010, and that’s when I asked her out and we started officially dating.
What followed was a lot of long distance and lot of plans to travel and meet.
I lived in Jaipur at that time, and was busy with the opening of my store, Alter Ego while she was in Delhi finishing her graduation. Like every new couple, (maybe we over exceeded) we were on our cellphones the entire day. There was just so much to know!
After her graduation, she shifted to Bombay and so did I. At that time, I was shuttling between college and Jaipur while she was preparing for her CAT exam. In short, it was a good time.
From buying tickets in black at Gaiety, to treating Palladium like Central Park, from waking up to the Beatles to listening to EDM by night. From making the most random trips to every beach around Bombay to taking rounds of the sea link. Bombay was very generous to us and to our new found love.
Then, she went away to NIFT, Bangalore and I thought long distance would be difficult, but it wasn’t. We made it work. I guess we had fallen for each other so hard that there was no way out.
I came back to Jaipur for work, and she shifted to Bombay. That was just plain hard luck. We were once again in a long distance. And if there is anything I knew, for sure, it was that I needed her and we had to get over this long distance!
2nd may 2015 – I decided to end it, I took her to our favourite place in Goa and asked her to marry me.
10th December 2016 – officially not in a long distance anymore!
I am still dating my wife, and I guess, I always will be.”
That was Rohan telling us how he found his best friend and wife, Amisha. What started at a wedding, recently resulted in a wedding too!
Their beautiful wedding ceremony took place in Hotel Diggi Palace, Jaipur on the 10th of December 2016. It was a fun event celebrated along with friends and family. The pictures are surely making us see how joyous and sublime the wedding was and the grandeur of the havelis in the background add to the charm of this festivity.
Amisha wore a banarasi lehenga that was designed by Vijayeeta Shah, Rohan’s sister and even Rohan’s outfits were designed by her.
Amisha’s jewellery was traditional heirloom, it holds a special place in her heart and these jewels have been worn by brides from different generations in both Rohan and her family. The Mathapatti and nath are both by designer Astha Jagwani. Her makeup was done by Arneeb Malik from Jaipur.
