“Wherever you go, my thoughts go yonder,
Distance makes our hearts grow fonder.”
Arranged marriages have been prescribed as the traditional form of marriage, since times immemorial. There are many people who believe that an arranged marriage lacks love, charm and magic that is existent in a love marriage. Well, Rachit and Isha are one couple who prove this wrong through their awesome chemistry, infinite love and charm. Isha wasn’t prepared to get married at that point of time when her parents insisted that she look at Rachit’s profile on a wedding portal. Rachit was in Belgium, and Isha was in India, when they had their first conversation that lasted almost three and a half hours. Isha’s first impressions of Rachit were quite positive as he seemed to be a very casual, friendly and a non-hesitant person. Isha had conversed with other guys through the wedding portals, but this was nothing like the conversations she had with them. This conversation with Rachit was different. It was more like talking to a friend than a spouse-to-be. They gradually came to know each other better and made the decision to spend their lives together.
A new chapter begun in my life,
When you asked me, “Will you be my Wife”
The first time this stunning couple met in person, was three days before their engagement. The meeting started out to be a little awkward and even Isha who isn’t shy by nature, was overcome by a little shyness. But after an hour or so, they got used to each other’s presence and the conversation flowed freely. Isha found Rachit to be even better than she had expected. He made her feel extremely comfortable and turned out to be a gentleman. He proposed Isha on the day of their engagement and gave a beautiful self-scripted speech about her. It was a lovely surprise for Isha, for he had caught her unawares by his eloquent speech. Every word he mouthed, made her fall in love with him more deeply. Before their Sangeet, they had a candid pre-wedding shoot and my favourite photo from the shoot is the one where Rachit picks up Isha, on his back; there is a beautiful story behind that picture. While Isha was posing with one arm on Rachit’s shoulder, he pleasantly surprised her by picking her up and one can see the beautiful bride-to-be blushing at this sudden and romantic gesture.Finally, the much-awaited wedding day arrived on 2nd March, 2014. Isha made a breathtaking doe-eyed bride and Rachit was equally charming as a groom. It was a heavenly match and the wedding ceremony was nothing short of beautiful. Have a look at the wonderful pictures from their wedding, below.
“I look far, and as far I can see
You, my sweetheart, will always be there for me.”
Isha, I really envy you. You have a gem of a husband who has some brilliant planning skills (Husbands, take note!). Rachit, you are really fortunate to have this doe-eyed beauty as your life partner. I wish this beautiful couple all the best in life! Keep smiling. Keep loving. <3 <3
