Let's get ready for some romance! These sweethearts are primping and priming for their big day and it sure is a classy affair! Maharani Mehreen is all about elegance in her snow white wedding sari and I love that she chose a soft color palette; it totally adds an ethereal element! Raja Rishad is one dapper dude as he rocks some serious groom fashion to complement his darling bride. Z Molu Photography snaps the best moments before the "I dos," so check them out at the gallery!

From the bride, on the proposal story:

"Of course! I came to Chicago from Dallas (my hometown) to visit Rishad. He made sure I brought something nice to wear by telling my sister to help me pack. We parked in downtown Chicago and were to walk to a surprise restaurant that he had picked out (I was used to this so thought nothing of it). As we're walking passed the infamous Macy's on State Street in beautiful downtown Chicago, one of the display windows has a huge sign that says 'MEHREEN, WILL YOU MARRY ME?' and next think I know, Rishad is down on his knees saying something... words that I have yet to recall =)! I was in shock as friends and family emerge to take videos and pictures of us. The crowds on the street start raving and clapping as I said yes to Rishad and to an absolutely beautiful ring. It didn't end there...we continued the stroll and ended up at a surprise engagement party with all our friends that he had arranged with personalized goodies and everything! Literally a mid-summer night's dream come true!"

I'll see you at the ceremonies!
