When we get to feature a photographer for the first time on Maharani Weddings, I get giddy with excitement.  Chicago based photographer, Dawn E Roscoe, has quickly moved to the top of our favs list with her girl-y style and enthusiasm for Indian weddings.  She has a soft touch behind the camera that is totally romantic.  Take a look :

From the bride : 

Before planning really began, we prioritized on what was the most important to them for their wedding day aside from getting married. They both agreed on venue, photography, décor, food and dj were the most crucial to making a wedding memorable.  I went the nontraditional route of selecting fuchsia and turquoise as her wedding colors instead of red. Wedding planning started with selecting the perfect wedding venue where family and friends would immediately say “This is so Genious and Neeraj” or at least “This is so Genious!”We were looking for a contemporary look and feel and of course that could accommodate 500 guests. After researching, they finalized on the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg, which definitely met their needs on the look of the “WOW” factor and capacity.  Then we trekked to India to do the shopping!  My mom and maternal uncle accompanied us. And, Neeraj had not been to India in over 25 years! That was an adventure in itself and we had to hit the ground running with only 2 weeks to shop. We spent a bit of time meeting each other's families, and made a trip to see Taj Mahal, which was unforgettable.  With 6 months left to plan, thousands of hours were spent on finalizing remainder of the details. We were on track of fulfilling our wedding dream!
