It’s been a while since we’ve celebrated the engagement of one of our own, which is why we are so very excited to continue our engagement series with Anita + Abhishek!
We are celebrating their nuptials in May and cannot wait to see all the details of their day unfold! Get to know the couple behind the pictures, and find out why we are so thrilled we get to help Ania + Ab say “I Do!”
Tell me a little bit about your dating & engagement. When did you meet? How did you get engaged? Etc.
We met online at the end of July 2013. Anita was 90 minutes late for their first date(!), but they went on a second date the next evening, and then Ab went to London for work for a month. Work kept us both busy over the next few months, but we continued to see each other and started dating more seriously in October 2013. We got engaged in the beginning of May 2015 at Lake 22 on a hike that Ab planned with his best man Andy, Andy’s wife Laurie, (& our dog Boomer!). Andy & Laurie photographed the whole thing and brought champagne :)..Anita had no idea!
What activities & hobbies do you and your fiancé enjoy in your free-time?
Hiking, traveling, wine-tasting, checking out the greater Seattle area (islands, etc), and going to art museums.
How you would describe your “Couple Style”?
We like doing outdoorsy things, particularly if we can bring Boomer along. We both really like to travel and explore new places, especially if those places involve hiking, trying new food/wine, or checking out art galleries.
What is your favorite sweet treat?
Describe your fiancé in three adjectives:
His: amazing, passionate and caring
Hers: Ab can be really thoughtful, loving, and happy/easygoing
Describe yourself in three adjectives:
His: cluttered, happy, bad jokes
Hers: super organized, easygoing, conscientious
Congratulations on your engagement, A+A! Holly can’t wait to celebrate with you on Bainbridge Island at Kiana Lodge!
