Saakshi Gulati and Mit Vithalani both studied at Russell Square International College, Mumbai, and that’s where they met. “He was in his final year while I was in my first. During one of our college trips (which I couldn’t attend), my friend Priyanka and Mit happened to bond pretty well and she introduced me to him the moment they were back. And we two hit it off almost immediately!” After their first meeting when Priyanka asked Saakshi about what she thought of him, all she could say was, “He’s cute. I can feel the connection with him!”




Two weeks later, Mit asked Saakshi out on a date and since then it has been a beautiful 6 years of togetherness. Check out the pictures of their stunning engagement and mehendi ceremony.

The Engagement


The couple exchanged the rings on the 9th of May, 2016 and we can’t decide weather we love the decor more or the bride’s gorgeous outfit or is it the charming chemistry between these two.
