Sonali & Prithvi's wedding has to be one of the most opulent and extravagant Indian weddings I have ever photographed. Everything from the mehndi to the sangeet (click here for Part I) to the wedding itself was absolutely stunning. The entire affair was full of color and details, and is one of the reasons I truly enjoy photographing South Asian weddings. The ceremony and reception both took place at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel. One of the few high-end venues that can host the nearly 500 guests who attended. The couple was a true to joy to photograph and simply to be around. They met at a Harry Potter premiere on a cold, blustery day. To quote the couple, "After SIX years long-distance, living in FIVE different cities, celebrating FOUR graduations, nearly THREE decades waiting for true love, bringing TWO families together...we created our ONE perfect love story!" I could not be happier for them, and I want to thank Sonali & Prithvi for allowing me the privilege of being a part of their wedding day!
