Kanika contacted me on Shaadi.com in February, 2013. After several long interesting hours of online chatting and conversations over the phone, we decided to meet up in Chicago. Both of us were enamored by each other on the first visit itself. We connected very well and the decision to get married followed rather effortlessly. Since Chicago was the first place we met, it was an obvious choice to propose.
So, I proposed to Kanika on April 5 at ‘The Bean’ in Chicago, followed by a great dinner downtown. We soon got our families involved and the wedding preparations began. Both our families stay in Delhi, so Delhi seemed to be a convenient location for our wedding. Although a large part of Kanika’s family stays in Canada too, everyone was thankfully willing to travel to Delhi. I am really thankful to Shaadi.com for helping us find each other.
