Their story began 10 years ago in October of 2007 when they first met at Garba.
After their first memorable encounter, they maintained daily conversations and were able to see each other when hanging out amongst mutual friends. They started to realize how much they had in common and how much they differed over the years. Nonetheless, their friendship quickly grew and turned into weekly visits.
In April of 2008, Ankit finally asked Yesha to be his girlfriend by taking her on a romantic date to a revolving restaurant in Times Square. After dinner, he presented her with a goldfish in a small fish tank and said to her, "You're the only fish in the sea for me." The two have been inseparable. Despite attending schools in different states and countries, they traveled miles to see each other - a testament of their bond, level of commitment and love for each other.
In June of 2016, Ankit finally popped the question at the beautiful Belvedere Castle in Central Park with cameras, flowers and an a capella group. It was an organized and well-planned occasion. Yesha was further surprised by shouts and cheers by their family and friends anxiously awaiting their arrival at the castle. Afterwards, Ankit had arranged a group celebration at the iconic Plaza Hotel.
Ankit and Yesha tied the knot in May of 2017, 10 years after meeting each other at Sheraton Mahwah
The wedding was a beautiful culmination of a 10 year growing relationship between best friends and lovers.
They are now officially husband & wife and inseparable forever.
Heartly congratulations Yesha & Ankit on this happy occasion!
We wish you never-ending love and the most happy life together.
Love, Chirali & Amish Thakkar
