What is it that makes a love story successful? Is it a romantic proposal under the starlit sky or a big, fat wedding celebration that leaves everyone spellbound? We doubt! Maybe because we have witnessed so many stories reach their 'happily ever after's now, that we have moved past all the glamour and started looking at the tiny nuances that bring them closer to the milestone.
Just like Menaka & Pratik - the lead characters of our story today, who believe in 'balancing' each other out, in their own words. Although having different choices that are often poles apart, they still believe in being by each other's side, having each other's back and growing together to become a better version of their own selves!
Having met on an online dating platform a few years ago, the couple barely had any plans of long-term dating in the initial phase. However, as meetings started getting longer and regular, the two knew that they were in this forever!
The next thing they knew was that they were already occupied zeroing down venues for the wedding! Menaka says that she wanted to make the most out of the very limited winter days that Dubai boasts of and hence chose the Hilton Beach Resort, RAK's foyer to say "I do!"The couple was so excited about having each thing right they decided to skip hiring a commercial planner and took the matter in their own hands. A beautiful, heartwarming intimate ceremony was planned to T by them, of course with a lot of help by their closest family and friends.
The process was truly memorable. It brought Pratik and his bride even closer to each other - an experience more special than the even itself. Here's a sneak peek into all that the meticulous planning resulted into - a memoir that speaks volumes more than we could ever express in words. Have a look yourself...
Here's a small glimpse of their Love in motion for who made it till the end. <3
