Mithil and Kruti are from two different worlds, Mithil was born and raised in Boston while Kruti was born in India, lived in Zambia, moved back to India and then finally to New Jersey when she was 13 years old. Their worlds collided when they were introduced through mutual friends while at medical school in Chicago; an introduction that only led to a Facebook friendship. “And the rest is history” did not manifest until two years later.
The Love Story as told by Mithil
I remember being absolutely stunned when I saw her for the first time, and so naturally I tried to have her go out with me. Unfortunately, my charm didn’t work so well on her the first time around and the farthest I got was her to accept my Facebook friend request. We both got pretty busy with school and went our own separate ways for a while. It wasn’t until two years later that our paths would cross again. I actually stumbled across her profile on an online dating site and figured why the hell not and shot her a message. One thing led to another and with a little help from our mutual friends, we went on our first date. We seemed to instantly click and of course the rest is history. I cant believe that was almost 3 and a half years ago.
We’ve gone through so much in that time and couldn’t have thought of a better person to have shared that time with. We both eventually graduated medical school and ended up in different parts of the country. I ended up in Michigan doing a residency in Emergency Medicine and she ended up in New York doing an Internal Medicine residency. Despite the hundreds of miles apart we grew closer and closer throughout the years. This 4th of July is when I popped the big question. I knew that she always wanted to have it with her family and close friends around and so I set up a rooftop with candles and flowers all overlooking the Manhattan skyline and told her that we were just going up for a casual holiday cookout. Needless to say it was the happiest moment in both of our lives.
We’re planning on having our wedding memorial day weekend in 2020. We cant wait to celebrate all the events of our big Indian wedding with all our family friends. 2020 is set to be a very big year for us as its not only when we will be getting married but also when we both will be finishing our medical residencies.
Congrats to both Mithil and Kruti. We wish you all the best in the wedding planning journey and beyond. Special thanks to photographer J. Stud Studio for sharing the beautiful images captured during Mithil and Kruti’s New York engagement session.
