Amy & Mehul :: Ashyana Banquets Indian Wedding

Get yourselves ready for the longest, most beautiful, colorful, full of emotion, love and tradition, wedding you have ever seen. By far one of my favorite weddings ever! Amy made a stunning bride and the day was pure perfection. Initially I thought it would be wiser to split the wedding into several posts, but I couldn’t. So here it is. Every moment from Baraat to the the couple Sikh ceremony, Hindu ceremony, bridal party portraits at Cantigny Park and their gorgeous reception!

It was a wet, chilly morning, but the rain stopped the moment Mehul arrived on horseback and the celebration began in front of the Ashyana Banquets in Downers Grove.

At the same time Amy was finishing up getting ready inside. My good friend, the AMAZING Enrique Enriquez of Brides by Enrique did Amy’s hair and make up for all three looks. Breathtaking! Amy made a beautiful bride and was an incredible muse for both of us!
