Bailey and John can thank Bailey’s brother for bringing them together. Bailey’s brother and John developed a strong friendship, and John would tag along on family vacations.

Vibhuti and Sam met while attending the University of Texas at Austin, studying alongside each other in their genetics class, where they found an immediate connection. After graduation, the couple took a chance at a long-distance relationship.

After three and a half years of long-distance dating, Kaleb proposed to Gilda in her very favorite place: sunny Carmel, CA. When it came time to propose, Kaleb devised a plan to surprise his college sweetheart with a beach picnic. Kaleb says, “The day of the proposal, we went on a hike at sea lion point, then came home to rest, and I was anything but restful. Gilda had no idea about my nerves because she took a nice relaxing nap. Under false pretenses of going to take pictures and walk on the beach, we headed down and walked up on the picnic, which she was questioning if it was for us. I got down on one knee and proposed, both of us with tear-filled eyes.”
Rika and Kartik’s love story began in West Palm Beach, Florida, where they both did their medical training and soon started dating. Having grown up in Brooklyn, Rika had always loved New York City, so it was only fitting for Kartik to propose in Times Square.
