Congratulations to Anand and Chandni.
Anand surprised Chandni on their weekend trip to Grand Haven, Michigan by having Music Travel Love come from Nashville and play while he proposed to her. She had no idea it was coming.
See all of their gorgeous photos below and read on as their photographer recalls how Anand pulled off his romantic lakeside proposal.
The proposal happened at the Grand Haven State Park in Grand Haven, Michigan. Anand and Chandni both live in Chicago and were taking a weekend vacation with Anand’s friend Anuj and his girlfriend Elizabeth. Chandni was actually in the process of moving into Anand’s apartment after Anuj moved out, so this was the perfect timing to propose. With all the moving, Chandni was completely clueless and didn’t expect a thing.
Anand contacted Music Travel Love who is based in Nashville, TN to come play for the proposal and make it extra special. Before the proposal, dinner at Noto’s At The Bill-Mar ended up running a little later than expected, and to hurry things up Anand said he didn’t feel well but wanted to walk the beach for a few photos. The restaurant is on the beach but it is a bit of a walk to get down to the pier area. Anuj had to come up with a few excuses to get them to where Bob and Clint from Music Travel Love were set up, but they finally made it.
Chandni went straight to the water to take photos of the sunset and didn’t even notice who was playing. She thought that they were playing for someone else. Anand led Chandni into the heart of candles in the sand and got down on one knee while Bob and Clint played. She was so surprised and had no idea whatsoever. With them being together for so long, she didn’t expect it all and assumed it was just another trip together. By the time the proposal happened, it was after sunset, but there was still some color in the sky which was absolutely beautiful.
