Sonya & Shishir get engaged.

“We were in Nashville for what I thought was a little getaway weekend after many long weeks of residency. I was completely surprised when he proposed. In fact, I interrupted his proposal speech multiple times to take pictures of the view because I thought he was just talking! Eventually, he pulled out a ring box and got on a knee and I figured it out. It was funny and perfect.”

In high school, Shishir asked Sonya if he could kiss her and she said, “no!”

After 6 proms, 6 years of adventure, and the adoption of their sweet little pup, Zoey; these two sweethearts are getting married!

Super excited to share their love story with you. We danced with their doggie in the woods, skipped through the fields, and ended the night with a few drinks at West Main Crafting Co. downtown.


From the couple:


“She has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

He loves and cares about my family as if they were his own.

Her personality brings out the best in me.

He’s the best dog dad.

She’s silly.

He knows how to have fun, let loose, and make me laugh.

She’s a catch.

He’s a keeper.


The second she opened her letter and we saw she was coming to UK [University of Kentucky], I cried.

Med school and residency are emotionally and physically draining. I would not have made it this far without his support.

We bring out the best in each other.”
