Melissa and Vishal met and started dating in Singapore; however, there is a twist in the story: when the couple met, Vishal was in the middle of a big move to Poland. But they really liked each other and decided to not let the distance get the best of them. Besides, the two are huge travel junkies and during the course of their relationship they visited a range of countries including Indonesia, India, Poland, Germany and Czech Republic where they created lovely memories and embarked on spectacular adventures.
It only made sense that this pair of globetrotters got engaged in an international location, and Paris is the pinnacle of romance. So it was fitting that this was the place where the Vishal popped the question, and photographer Pierre was there to capture the moment. “When we decided to get some photos taken in Paris I contacted Pierre ‘in secret’ a couple of weeks earlier and told him about my intentions of proposing and wanting it to keep it as a surprise”, said Vishal.
However, Vishal was not the only one with a few tricks up his sleeve, and, boy, was he in for a surprise! “I had a gut feeling he had planned something,” said Melissa. “Besides saying yes to him, I also wanted to let him know that I chose him, and I also wanted to ask him to be mine for life.” So, Melissa bought a titanium ring and had her own counterproposal after she said yes to Vishal.
