Your Love Story....Tell us where it all began.....

We met in Cambridge Massachusetts in 2016 (around Valentine's Day). Ellie was on a first date that wasn't going well. And Shyaan's friend was secretly trying to set up Shyaan with Ellie's first date. Shyaan had no idea and preferred talking to Ellie. They started dating a few months later.

When and where did you get engaged?

With you both! Praia da Ursa in Sintra Portugal on September 13, 2019. Ellie was very confused why Shyaan was dragging her down a perilous cliff for a couple's photography session. She was very very surprised.

Tell us why you chose Portugal for your wedding?

Shyaan's parents live part-time in Lisbon. It was an accessible location for both our families to come together, since Ellie's family and friends are based out of New York and Shyaan's family and friends are from Pakistan, Singapore, and the U.K.
