How we met: It was a love match. We met through common friends 9 years ago in New York, during my spring break vacation. 🙂 We really connected 3 years later when we both moved to Dubai…

The Proposal: Chirayu proposed to me on August 27th, 2012 in Paris! It was a gorgeous day, starting with brunch by the Louvre, a couple hours at the museum, followed by a Parisian boat ride along the river Seine- just the 2 of us. He had a banner spanned across the one of the bridges before the Notre Dame, saying ‘Will you marry me’! We proceeded to the Phillip Stark restaurant Kong for dinner after the proposal to continue the celebrations.

Wedding Venue and why we chose it:  Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai, north of Thailand.

I was born in Bangkok, I’m 4th generation Thai. Most my family still lives there. Thailand is very special to me. My parents had visited the Dhara Dhevi 8 years ago. Upon their return, all they talked about was how magical the property was and how they’d love for me to get married there! After globetrotting to find the perfect place, we finally landed back in Thailand 🙂 Dhara Dhevi resort in Chiang Mai is truly a mystical property that resembles an ancient city of temples. Phenomenal service, food and venues for a wedding.
