Their story came directly from the pages of a fairytale as Shivanth thought of every possible item that would make his proposal to the woman of his dreams spectacular. He then went two steps further to ensure that Kamana had the story and the man of her dreams.
Shivanth and Kamana started their courtship over witty text messages, chatty e-mails and conversations at all hours of the night. Shivanth was in Silicon Valley living the tech dream while Kamana was making her own inroads back in Maryland. Over time their conversations became longer, their trips to see each other more frequent and Shivanths desire to marry the woman of his dreams inevitable.
On a brisk morning in August Kamana came out to California to visit her boyfriend; that Saturday morning he drove her out to the idyllic Chateau St. Jean, nestled in the heart of Sonoma Valley to propose the only way he knew how – with true style and sophistication.
As they approached the estate, Kamana’s breath was taken aback as she saw the enchanting castle with vineyards, lush gardens, and ivy covered arches all around. Even with the car windows up the scent of vines, grapes, and roses entwined with the morning dew that made the chateau smell and feel like something out of a fairytale.
Shivanth led her by the hand into the Chateau’s secret garden and as they entered they heard the live acoustic rendition of Kamana’s favorite song Pehli Nazar Mein. Shivanth led her to a walkway draped in pink and white rose petals that led to a small couch he asked her to sit on. Above the couch were roses hanging from two trees with an abundant amount of hand written notes on heart-shaped cards with messages of why he loves Kamana so much. Overhead; a monogram with their initials etched on each mint and coral colored heart coincidently Kamana’s favorite colors. Reading the cards, Kamana was touched by the elegance and beauty of each detail he had thought of and upon finishing the cards Shivanth went down on one knee unbeknownst to her and Kamana made Shivanth the happiest man alive.
