Every wedding is an unforgettable story that is cherished forever. Be it an arranged marriage that is set up through matchmaking or it is a college romance that lasts forever, the story sure is worth telling for many many dinners, later. One such story caught our eye and that belongs to Sam and Prat. Samantha and Praharshit's story is really one for romance novels. 

Both Sam and Prat are based out of the US and are currently in the Washington DC area and they got married in February 2020 right before the lockdown. If you are wondering how or why then here are all the itty bitty mushy deets of their story up until the wedding. Read on to get your heart melted by the adorable couple.

How They Met

This is the part we love most! When a couple recalls the story of how they met - at a restaurant, in college, a park or maybe through parents; it is always a heartwarming story that brings a smile on the face of the couple as well as the audience to that story. On a similar note, Samantha says, "It is truly as though destiny brought us together. We both are from different cities - Prat from Hyderabad and Sam from Chennai. Almost 10 years ago, fate put us side by side for 4 long years when he came to Chennai to pursue his Bachelors in Engineering. Throughout that time, we always crossed paths but never really met each other. We both attended the same college for our bachelor's, same batch, same branch, and we’re in neighbouring classes."

She continues to say, "But not once did we meet. By some random chain of events, we became Facebook friends because of some mutual friends and that was it. That was the end of the story back then. Fast forward to 3 years ago, we met randomly in Philadelphia while attending a career fair. We met for dinner afterwards and sparks instantly flew for Prat."

He knew she was the one for him and told her almost immediately. Samantha says, "We dated for almost 2 years before Prat proposed for marriage."

Their Dream Wedding

Samantha says, "The idea of our dream wedding was one that was filled with all our friends and family. Going into the planning mode, we both had no idea what theme or decor we wanted. All we knew was that while we both were far away in the US, we wanted to be active members of our wedding planning along with our parents. Instagram and the various wedding and bridal blogs really helped us find the right vendors for our wedding."

Speaking about their inspiration the couple says, "From these blogs, we knew exactly what kind of decor we wanted, what kind of clothes and jewellery Samantha wanted to buy. We created various mood boards and found the right people to make our vision come true. Given the time difference between India and the US, we would stay up late nights and wake up early mornings to coordinate with planners."

They add, "After all that online planning, it was great to come to India a few days before the wedding and see all our efforts come to fruition. The best part about our wedding was having all our loved ones with us. We danced till 2 am every single day for 3 days."
