Happy Valentine's Day to Ruchit Desai and Anuja Tiwari! The couple recently got engaged in LSC's Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, the biggest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere.
Ruchit popped the question to Anuja during a show at our Lunar Mania celebration. Check out this video of the proposal in action:
Afterward, we caught up with Ruchit and Anuja to find out what the experience felt like.
"It was amazingly special for me," Anuja said. "I felt like the whole crowd was so happy for both of us. The staff was extremely attentive at making sure no secrets were spilled. After the proposal, a lot of people came up to us and congratulated us.
"Overall, it was an incredible night."
Ruchit elaborated on why he chose the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium as the location for his proposal.
"Anuja loves all things to do with the stars and beyond, and the one place that came to mind was the Liberty Science Center – a place where we had our third date," he said. "I knew she would love the huge planetarium and I am so grateful that the staff was so warm, welcoming, and gracious in helping me plan the proposal to coincide with the lunar eclipse. We will never forget it!"
Congratulations, Ruchit and Anuja!
