Rachelle first greeted Piyush with a question, “What are you doing two Saturdays from now?” Piyush, pleasantly surprised by Rachelle’s impromptu interest, immediately responded, “Nothing, I am totally free.” Rachelle invited Piyush to her Tri Delta formal. Since attending the sorority formal together, the couple has been inseparable.
Father Karol Ksiazek presided over the Catholic ceremony at St. Theresa Parish; and Shri Krishnamurthi officiated at the Hindu ceremony held at the Glen Harbour Club in New Rochelle, where the reception was also held.
Rachelle, the daughter of Lee and Patricia Emard of Miami, is a University Programs Specialist for Google in New York. She received her bachelor’s degree in policy and management from Carnegie Mellon University.
Piyush, the son of Niraj and Ritu Gupta of Trumbull, is a doctor at the Rhode Island Hospital. He earned his medical degree from the University of Vermont.
