How He Asked is featuring Amit and Shaheen’s Austin art gallery proposal, yay! These fellow Longhorns got engaged in December. Amit set up the CamibaArt proposal, and then the plan was to head over to the University of Texas. Flash forward to proposal day, and we get freezing cold rain. Right away we know that the second part of the plan is switching. I look around the art gallery, and I’m not sad at all! Troy curates a beautiful collection, and I instantly found fun areas that I hoped Shaheen would like.
First, let’s talk about how these two got together! After meeting through a friend, Amit ends up leaving Shaheen a note on her door with crayon. He asks her a simple question, “Do you like me?”. With a solid “maybe” from Shaheen, they started getting to know each other better. He brought out the crayon notes once again when he was ready to ask her to officially be his girlfriend. Note how this crayon question plays into his proposal below (I love this)!
Second, we should discuss the illustrations because Meredith Jones did a fantastic job! One of Shaheen’s favorite things is Disney World, and Amit had Meredith draw the two of them in various Disney classics like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid. Underneath each illustration Amit added some descriptions about his favorite moments from their relationship. Does it get any sweeter?! It actually does. Click on the link to the feature on How He Asked to see how Christmas (her other favorite thing!) played into this whole proposal. Amit definitely went above and beyond to make this a memorable day!
Congratulations on your Austin art gallery proposal! I wish you both a beautiful beginning to your new life together!

What a sweet proposal! I love that he had a check yes or no note for her! It’s even better since that is how their love story started!
