Happy wedding week to Laura and Bhavesh! As part of our countdown to their special day, we are sharing their story.

The first spark:

How did you meet?

Bhavesh and Laura met on a dating app in March of 2020. They messaged back and forth for a few weeks and then met for a walk at Railroad Park in April. Since much of the beginning of their relationship happened during COVID-19, they did a lot of walking. Railroad Park was their go-to spot!

The adventure begins:

How did the proposal happen?

Bhavesh is Mauritian and had been asking Laura for a picture that he could send to his parents to show them who he was dating. In December, Bhavesh asked Laura if her friend Hayden could take a picture of the two of them. Because he had been asking her about taking pictures for months, Laura didn’t think much of it. He insisted on going to Railroad Park. They took a few pictures, but while Laura was looking at them on her friend’s camera, Bhavesh dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him. They celebrated with friends and family afterwards with a dinner at Blueprint on 3rd.

Plans are made:

Why did you choose the Huntsville Museum of Art for your wedding event?

Laura thinks the Huntsville Museum of Art is beautiful and an iconic Huntsville fixture. She was shocked to find out that it was available when they started planning in January.

A moment to last a lifetime:

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?

They are excited to celebrate with friends and family! Sadly, Bhavesh’s family will not be able to make it because of COVID-19 restrictions in Mauritius, but they are still looking forward to celebrating with those who can make it, including some of Bhavesh’s close family friends.
