It all began at the University of Michigan in their final year of college at an Indian cultural event. Their was an immediate connection made. For the next 6 months they conveniently “bumped” into each other until Deepak had the courage to tell Ravali that he was into her. Their first date kicked off with homeade pesto pasta followed by late night gelato…a treat they still enjoy eating together now. Sadly, Deepak moved to Seattle, Wa after graduation and thus started ‘relationship torture’ also known as long distance dating…I was in that club too so I know how “fun” it can be! A little east coast – west coast distance didn’t stop them from continuing to grow closer as they spent many nights on Skype or on the phone. 3 years later, Ravali moved to San Francisco and lessened the distance gap. As fate would have it, 6 months later they would be in the same city again when Deepak followed her to the City by the Bay! Yah for no more distance! Just one short year later he proposed at their favorite winery, Artesa, and surprised her by inviting friends and family to help them celebrate! Their story sums up the whole meaning of ‘Love is Patient’ and I can see it in the way they are together that they will never take each other’s presence for granted. I am so happy for these two wonderful people and wish them the most amazing wedding celebrating in Michigan this year!
