We got to see familiar faces again, documenting our 2nd wedding with this wonderful family. All the festivities conveniently took place at Sheraton in Lisle starting with the Sangeet Friday evening and the Baraat early Saturday morning. With such a compact timeline, we only had a few moments to step outside for photos and took advantage of a nice natural area not too far away (a great find while scouting). But most of the photos took place inside the Sheraton which was artfully decorated and made for some good indoor backgrounds. While the entire weekend was full of thunderstorms, it magically stopped for just enough time to have an outdoor Baraat.

Some fun details… Niraly & Hitesh did a fantastic job with their decor, showing vibrant purple theme throughout the ballroom. They had a B&W photo escort card that turned into color as each guest took their card. They had a giant snow globe with bobble head type figures of themselves in it along with Chicago theme locations. Every guest table had selfie sticks, such a great idea and allows for fun photos to share with the bride & groom. They treated their guests not only to an abundance of desert options, but they also had cook-to-order funnel cakes! Lots more to see so just go check out their gallery on our Facebook Page.

Congratulations Nirali & Hitesh! We are very grateful that you brought us back to your warm families and friends for another wedding. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon!

While this was “only” an engagement party, we certainly had to show off the photos simply because Manpreet and Sandy did an amazing job planning & designing their event.

Manpreet & Sandy plan to marry in the west coast during the summer. They do have many ties in Chicago so it was only fitting to have their engagement party in the heart of downtown Chicago, at the Millennium Park Rooftop Terrace with spectacular views of the Chicago skyline. Many friends and family flew into town for a reunion, coming from both the west and east coasts.

Some fun details…The escort table was uber personalized, using an actual framed photo of every guest displayed on top of rose petals! The outdoor courtyard had some cozy and cool seating areas for the guests to enjoy. There was a distance sign of every major location their guests would come from to greet them. There was a “step and repeat” backdrop for the guests to take red carpet snapshots. There was even a designated skyline selfie spot. The backdrop was made up entirely of flowers, never seen anything like it! Their engagement photos rotated in display against one of the outdoor walls which beautifully blended into the skyline. See all of it on our Facebook album here.

Congratulations Manpreet & Sandy! Thanks for having us take part on your wedding events!

Not only was today a special day, but it was also truly a unique wedding day. Katie & Utham incorporated some Hindu traditions by having a Hindu ceremony in the morning and finishing off the day with an American style reception. The fun part? Katie got to play dress up twice! The day began the Marriott Chicago Naperville with Katie’s long time friends, getting ready for a traditional Hindu ceremony at the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in Lemont. The ceremony took place right before noon and after a quick lunch, Katie began getting ready for the reception switching to her white wedding dress. After a second “first look”, we headed to Naperville Riverwalk for some wedding party photos. Considering the very long day and many events happening throughout, everyone was laid back and had a great time experiencing the special day. This is certainly a treat for us photographers, getting to shoot 2 different looks in one day. While the day was longer than usual, it certainly didn’t feel that way. There are many more must see photos so don’t forget to visit their gallery on our Facebook Page!

Some cool details… Katie’s long time friends put together a photo collage of their younger years. The reception’s centerpiece was a beautiful Mehndi inspired cake which certainly caught our attention. Katie pulled off a really stunning look in the morning ceremony with a traditional Indian Sari. Then finishing off the day looking completely different but equally stunning with a traditional white wedding dress. Because if this wardrobe change, this is the first time we’ve experienced two “first looks” in one day!

Congratulations Katie & Utham! We’re very lucky to have been your photographers, especially since you had to pick one from out of town having to rely only on viewing our work online. So thank you for trusting in us and letting us witness your amazing day!

Beautiful people – two words that come to mind when thinking about our experience with Ami & Keyur’s wedding. During long hours of photography, Michelle and I sometimes count down the hours because our bodies are just waiting to collapse. But that wasn’t the case this weekend. Their families’ welcoming warmth gave us energy and we never felt tired throughout the weekend. Being around such friendly people really makes life experiences that much more worthwhile.

Ami & Keyur’s entire day took place at Drury Lane Theatre in Oak Brook Terrace. We had some bad weather the entire day which pushed some outdoor events inside but that didn’t stop the excitement during the Baraat or Viddai as Keyur made a grand entrance at the Baraat in a Lamborghini Gallardo.

Some cool details… the wedding party helped with some creative “Thank You” photos and we’ll try not to spoil it for the guests and avoid being descriptive. Ami & Keyur had a cute “first look” as they read each other’s letter with each back towards the other. They had Ami/Keyur shaped cookie favors. The bridal party received thumb drives customized to fit each one’s personality. Keyur may have had a grand entrance with his Lambo but the ring bearers rolled in on a Ferrari! We can’t forget to mention, both families love to dance so everyone got in a special dance number, which was easily the highlight of the evening. There’s so much more to list but we’ll just let everyone enjoy the photos and see for themselves.

Congratulations Ami & Keyur! We’re so grateful you chose us to be your photographers. It was a joy getting to know your friends and family and getting to witness your amazing weekend. Thank you!

Ami’s Mandap Muhurat took place in the morning while Keyur’s took place in the afternoon which thankfully allowed for us to cover both events. As photographers, this is probably one of our favorite parts of Hindu weddings. They are in a “relaxed” home environment with very close family and friends, which invites many key intimate moments as well as some fun and crazy photos.

Alice & Ananda had their Midwest wedding at Lincolnshire Marriott Resort followed by an East Coast reception a week later. An intimate gathering allowed them to really experience the day with their closest friends and family and most of all, have more time with each other. We noticed them looking at each other quite a bit throughout the day which cultivated a ton of great candid moments. While they are two cultures apart, their interaction is evidence that love is all you need. The Beatles really know their stuff.

One really cool detail at their wedding… they had a DIY photo booth which was a big hit! The venue had some cool photo spots one of which are several bridges made out of old rail cars. A touch of urban background lost inside a greenery golf course.

Thanks Alice & Ananda for trusting us with an important investment and congratulations!
