Praneeth and Chetna technically met online. He sent her a detailed message…and she ignored it for two whole months, however, she eventually replied with one line telling him to call her. Chetna discovered they had mutual friends in common and from one phone call, they immediately hit it off.

“Most guys just want to please the girl really fast, but he pulled out all the stops.”

Chetna loved the sound of Praneeth’s voice and that he would playfully argue with her on the phone during their first few conversations.  Praneeth loved how easily they were able to talk to one another from day one.

“She is always up for anything. I learned later that she hates Japanese food, but still went to a sushi restaurant with me on our first date. And it didn’t hurt that she’s easy on the eyes!”

Chetna knew he was the one when she had to work in a hospital in Africa for a month. She felt like that was a true test whether they would last, and was happy to discover that their daily phone conversations continued even halfway across the world! For Chetna, it was a very emotional experience and Praneeth’s voice got him through it.

Praneeth built and designed this striking engagement ring at the Diamond District in New York. He surprised Chetna with an engagement proposal at the Film Society movie theater at Lincoln Center. She thought she was going to a film screening, but instead, Praneeth rented out the theater and filled it with all their family and friends. The movie? His proposal!

“I think I knew well before she did that we were going to be married. She embodies everything that I’m looking for in a girl. I knew within a few dates that she was the one for me.”
