Viresh and I met at our workplace. The very first day I saw him, there was something special about him. so as we spoke we became good friends at first.
It was Viresh Both of us happened to work on certain projects and workshops together, so we got to spend more time together organising things for the department. Those became our common topics which gradually lead to very candid conversations. After a couple of months of just chatting we both knew there is something more between us.
Our colleagues at the workplace, especially Minuri from my side and Jehan from Viresh’s think they felt it before us and they started bugging us and talking on behalf of us. Which gradually lead for us to be confirmed as to what we feel.
My first impression on Viresh was his name and his height. I thought that he has a very nice name. Viresh is 6.3 ft tall so I was really impressed by that. Quality wise I really admired the fact that he is very nice to everyone starting from the very top level to the bottom. He is also a person with a great heart and who is very passionate about everything in life.
We are both foodies
It was our first date at Water’s Edge. It is very memorable as it was our first outing together in a beautiful evening having a candlelight dinner.
I love that he is very passionate about his work.
I love that he is a great human being
I love that he has a lot of patience
I do not hate anything about him.
It happened in a way that I never expected. On the day before my birthday in April 2017 we had a Bolgoda outing with our friends as my birthday treat and from morning till evening, we were there jetskying, eating and having boat rides.
It was a fun day but very tiring. After everything was over we got home late night and Viresh went back to his place and sharp at 12 midnight when I was in my pjs Viresh appeared all dressed up with a cake, flowers and to my surprise a ring! He proposed to me that night, as I always had the answer in me.
I said yes.
It was a surprise. on the scale of surprise level it was 10/10 but on proposal level, as i was in my pjs I was complaining him a lot that he could have told me something so that I would have been dressed to say yes
I am looking forward to a life filled with beautiful adventures and memories with Viresh and to share every moment with him irrespective of whether it’s happy or sad.
I think it was the going-away. It was mixed emotions leaving your family behind and going to start a new chapter with the love of your life.
The most fun detail that I got to plan was our wedding cake structure. we had the entire retinue placed in the cake as sculptures. Everyone loved it!
I think none of the details were difficult to agree upon. I had the full freedom in the decision making. Well if you have watched the tv series “friends” as Monica says that every girl has their wedding planned and dreamed at a very young age, I think that’s very true. I had a vision and a dream as to how one day my wedding should be like. So it was just a matter of executing it.
We went to london. It was a lovely experience. We both still miss the time we had together in london.
The idea of “lived happily ever after” for me is been there for each other no matter what.
That Viresh has a lot of patience.
I think we both take turns in that, I really think it’s very important in every relationship. You should only remember the things that makes your love stronger and everything else you should simply forget and continue to love each other.
