Stephanie Smith and Shiv Verma are to be married April 28, 2013, in dual ceremonies conducted by Hindu priest Pundit Anand Sharma and Minister Tyler Bennett at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton.

The couple, who share a birthday, graduated in 2003 from Tracy High School, where they attended their senior prom together.

Shiv surprised Stephanie by dropping to one knee during a walk in the Rose Garden at Stanford University on Oct. 5, 2012. They celebrated their engagement over dinner with their parents and sisters.

The bride-to-be is the daughter of Carol and Doug Smith and sister of Melanie Smith, all of Tracy.

Stephanie will begin her medical residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania in June, following her graduation from Stanford University School of Medicine. She earned Bachelor of Science and Master of Public Health degrees from Yale University.

The groom is the son of Dr. Saral Verma and Surinder Verma of Tracy. His sister, Shelly Verma Jha, lives in Modesto with her husband and children.

Shiv is completing requirements for his MBA at UCLA Anderson School of Management and has accepted a position as a portfolio manager for PIMCO investment firm. Before business school, he earned his bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and worked at J.P. Morgan in New York and Symphony Asset Management in San Francisco.
