What could be sweeter than playing the guitar and sharing cupcakes with your true love? Nirag & Bijal were adorable, silly and totally delightful on a wander through San Diego’s gorgeous garden centerpiece. This Balboa Park engagement made our hearts grow two sizes. They stopped under grand trees with utterly magical canopies of pink blossoms. Nirag even serenaded his beautiful bride-to-be (and damn that kid can play!). Then these two love birds then found a nice grassy spot near the art museums, spread out a blanket, and got cute and cuddly before breaking out the wine and Sprinkles cupcakes. Ah, such love, such sweet, sweet love.

And if you keep your eyes peeled, you might just notice an unexpected and wonderfully strange turn of events about halfway through. Spoiler: a horseman is involved.

Read on!

Okay, so here’s where things get weird.

Nirag and I and his roommate conspired to pull a surprise off for Bijal. She did not see it coming. It took some effort, and I had to persuade them to keep closing their eyes to “feel the romance” (not something I’d normally ever do, haha), in order to make this happen. She was 100% surprised when she got her full gallery. WORTH IT.

Let me just add that Nirag is laughing here because he TOTALLY KNOWS why i made them close their eyes and stuff, and he is rejoicing in the fact that Bijal never caught on. #ded
