From the bride, on her engagement story: "During Chicago’s winter, he insisted on going for a drive at the Chicago's Museum Campus, my favorite place in the city. I kept on denying during the weekdays, thinking it will be chilly. On Thursday, January 17th, 2013 we decided to go on a drive to get some fresh air. He played my favorite songs and drove towards the lake. We tried to take a walk, but it was freezing; so we decided to sit in the car while listening to the music that was pleasing. And suddenly he popped the question and I said "Yes!" That’s when he opened the glove compartment and presented me the ring and that’s how it all became official."

Check out a Maharani glam sesh as our bride gets ready for her big day, up next!
