    This Couple Had The Most Magical Harry Potter-Themed Engagement That Was "Riddled" With References

    Mischief managed, and how.

    Meet Mohit Gupta and Mahathi S Kumar, a Bangalore couple who (as you can see) are huge Potterheads.

    Two Christmases ago, they had a chance meeting because they shared a table at a crowded restaurant during a Harry Potter quiz night in Delhi.

    After having a pretty rough day, Gupta and a friend decided to hit the quiz night filled with fans. There he met Kumar. Gupta told BuzzFeed that he was progressing well in the festivities but he got stuck at one of the questions: "'It unscrews the other way,' who said to whom?"

    "As we were desperately trying to remember, a beautiful girl in a stunning red dress sitting near me asked, 'Need some help on that?' 'Yes, please,' I replied.

    "She never gave me the answer, but merely whispered, 'book 5' and bang, I remembered the names. In a way, that question was the defining moment for us, as we reached the final round and at last won that quiz by defeating almost 50 teams.

    "I profusely thanked the girl, not even knowing her name, trying very hard not to stare into her mesmerising eyes."

    Long story short, they chatted and exchanged numbers, and two years later, this is the happy couple at their *surprise surprise* Harry Potter-themed engagement party.

    And boy oh boy, was the scene something that might even put the Great Hall to shame.

    Mischief was managed at the entrance, which led the guests with tiny footprints to the ballroom.

    Of course, the Hogwarts emblem was above the royal throne to shower blessings upon the couple.

    Spells, floating candles, dark wizards, and lost prophecies adorned the archways.

    The groom was never without his wand, which I'm sure chose him at Ollivander's at a very early age.

    I sense a tinge of phoenix feather...13½ inches, unyielding...

    The cake was "riddled" (haha, gettit?) with a ton of references.

    And the rings were presented in Helga Hufflepuff's cups — a Marvolo Gaunt black stone ring for Gupta and a Golden Snitch ring for Kumar.

    And all was well.
