Here comes the Proposal:
Harshal knew early on Hiral was the one but time just made him surer. It was not just their chemistry, it was the way their friends, family, and surroundings fell into place like puzzle pieces that were one day meant to come together. Less than two years into the relationship, Harshal decided he was going to marry Hiral, and soon. Knowing Hiral, Harshal wanted to do something outside the box and unconventional, something that would surely catch her by surprise. Skydiving was always on Hiral and Harshal's bucket list, so Harshal figured why not throw two surprises in one. Harshal's plan was to take Hiral skydiving, Unfortunately, his well-choreographed plan did not work due to unforeseen rainy weather, the original plan could not be implemented.
But that did not stop Harshal. They find the highest peak in NJ, go set up a beautiful ambiance with one of Hiral’s favorite songs in the background, and they make sure that Hiral and Harshal have the proposal they deserve.
After much stalling, Harshal finally got Hiral to the Highpoint, got down on one knee, and asked the most important question of their lives...On September 8, 2018 Hiral said YES, and the rest is under construction.
Here comes the Indian Wedding Planning:
Hiral and her family planned her Mehndi Celebration at their relative’s home. Beautiful Mehndi also knows as Henna was applied on Hiral’s hands and on her feet. It was a beautiful evening as their celebration was taking it’s first step towards four days long indian wedding celebration.

Indian Wedding Reception:
One big thing the bride and groom wanted was a custom dance floor with their logo. We really believe this changed the look of the entire room around and really complemented the rest of the decor as opposed to a regular wooden dance floor. They celebrated their cocktail and reception with food, drink, and dance along with their friend and family….and they lived happily ever after….

Choosing Indian Wedding Photographer:
The reason for choosing the best indian wedding photographer Chirali Thakkar and best Indian wedding cinematographer Amish Thakkar from Fine Art Production was based on their experience and their gala collection of their indian wedding photography over the last two decades. Hiral and Harshal met Chirali & Amish during Indian Bridal Expo and fell in love with their personalities immediately. One thing H&H wanted as bride and groom was ease and peace of mind. They wanted personalities that were easy to work with and Amish and Chirali gave those vibes immediately. They have been a pleasure to work with from day one.
.....and they lived Happily ever after......
