People say, you don’t have to find love, one fortunate day love will find you and life would be more than beautiful. For, Nupur and Kaushik, love planned a different way, the two met 11 years ago, when they were just 16. They met on the school bus, didn’t talk much, but both of them had a huge crush on each other. After a few months, they met at a dandiya night, exchanged numbers and the next day while having coffee, Kaushik asked her to be his girlfriend, to which she said ‘Yes’. 2 years later Kaushik moved to Singapore to do his engineering and she went on to do her bachelors in Psychology. They lived far, but love kept them together.
The Wedding Story:
Their’s is a reversed 2-state kind of story (Nupur is from north India and Kaushik is a tam brahm), they decided to have the Sangeet, Haldi and Mehendi the north Indian way and the wedding in typical tam brahm style.

For me, I always say, Kaushik is the wind beneath my wings. The reason I am happy, the reason I live, the reason I am pushed beyond boundaries to achieve my dreams is because of him. He is my best friend more than anything. We have grown up with each other and there is no one who knows me better. They say in life you meet one person who is unlike any other. He is the one who makes you smile like no one ever. That person is your soul mate and for me that is Kaushik.

Friendship finds us based on what we like, and love finds us based on what we are like. Nupur has always been more than a best friend. Her sincerity and generosity inspires me to be a better human being. She is somebody who understands my intentions prior to my actions and I have been able to be myself around her. As we walk this journey of ours together, I am glad that she was my soul mate prior to being my soul-mate.
The Most Beautiful Proposal I Have Ever Come Across (Note down, this might can help you someday :p
Nupur shares, “In Jan 2015, he told me we were going to Thailand for a surprise holiday. We reached the resort at Khao Lak and after some rest, Kaushik asked me to get dressed for dinner. After getting dressed, we had a limo, come to pick us up where I was served with roses and champagne. After driving for a bit we landed in the middle of a jungle. I was a bit scared, but when I walked ahead a bit with torchlight I saw a slope lit up with candles. Kaushik had arranged 500 candles on a slope in the middle of a jungle beside a waterfall. He had also arranged a chef to cook my favorite dishes live. He then went down on his knees, spoke about our 11 years and popped the question with a ring. I was definitely surprised, as I didn’t expect him to be so old school after 11 years, but who doesn’t want a proposal like this. It was the best day ever” (With a big smile on her beautiful face)
Nupur On The Talented Photographer
As for Pulkeshin, I have known him since I was a kid. We have been family friends for years, so for me he and his team were like a big support system at the wedding. I am so grateful to them to take time out and shoot us. Pulkeshin is just way too talented. If someone can capture emotions, it is Pulkeshin. Weddings and events are his forte and he captures exactly what is needed.
