The moment we sat down for our coffee [consultation] date, Pooya claimed he should tell their proposal study as not to leave out any intricate details of how he carefully planned the biggest surprise. He thought of every scenarios and angles to not clue her in when he got dressed in suit and tie — he settled on letting her know he’d be presenting at an upcoming conference, which is nothing out of the ordinary for this academic couple. And just like that, they drove to the airport. He stopped the car under the pretense that something was wrong. When she, too, got out of their vehicle to see what was the matter, he proposed to her under the brilliant sun. It was days later that Pooya shared with me Zoya reminds him of the sun, “my sun”. Pooya is essentially a leading man from a romance movie, non? But more specifically, a romcom. There is always humor and a sense of ease with him. The way Zoya looks at him and laughs along with him… She told me she loves that they never need to censor anything, that they share all their thoughts. Truly, they’ve found the universe with each other. I am so happy for their union and that loved ones from across the globe can celebrate with them!
Zoya and Pooya – if you can survive graduate school together, you can survive anything. I might be speaking from experience. ? It is so sweet to witness how tender and yet carefree your love is. Thank you for letting me capture the beginning to your happily ever after!
