A festive mendhi party and a highly energized Garba celebration were the predecessors to an unforgettable weekend for Ankita and Nakul, who were married at a Sikh Temple in Palatine, Illinois. The wedding evening concluded at the popular Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois with a fun-filled roster of effervescent Bollywood performances by the bridal party followed by freestyle dancing by their guests.
Beth and Dom
The Glen Country Club is the perfect picturesque setting for a beautiful wedding to be shared with friends and family, which is exactly where Beth and Dom actualized their wedding vows in the summer of 2018.
One of the sweetest couples that we've ever worked with, Beth and Dom had their hearts set on capturing not only their wedding vows and toasts on video, but also wanted to share their intimate feelings about experiencing their own wedding on camera. A few weeks after their wedding, we took an hour with the couple to reminisce about their special day and learn what made their wedding so extraordinary. This is a great highlight for anyone that is planning a wedding right now!
James and Lauren
Meyer's Castle was a gorgeous setting of James and Lauren's special day! Besides the luscious backdrops at the estate, the vibrantly colorful peacocks added a hint of magic and wonderment into the air as the couple shared their vows in the breathtaking gardens.
Kathryn and John's Highlights
Kathryn and John really wanted the entire city of Chicago involved in their amorous, black and gold schemed wedding. From video sessions on Lake Michigan's beautiful shoreline to Lincoln Park Zoo's famous Honeycomb sculpture to a quick kiss in the middle of a downtown intersection, Kathryn and John embodied the breathtaking excitement of the Windy City. As magnificent as their wedding was, it also tugged at our heartstrings. Kathryn and John wonderfully incorporated all of their friends and family in their special day with heartfelt speeches to mini celebrations happening from sun up to sun down. What a romantic, enjoyable and memorable wedding.
Hina and Sunny's Highlights
This was our first wedding in Vail, Colorado. Wow, just breathtaking views. Hina and Sunny's wedding took place in the heart of Vail, surrounded by the White River National Forest. The views from the mountaintop were beyond remarkable! We've filmed Indian weddings all throughout Chicago, but I've never experienced a 3- day Indian wedding situated in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. I am so thankful for having the experience to film Hina and Sunny's wedding.
Farah and Chander's Highlights
Farah and Chander's wedding was simply spectacular! Their South Asian wedding celebration in Downtown, Chicago was filled with fun, love, and lots of emotions. Farah and Chander's colorful Hindu wedding at the historic Palmer House was nothing short of spectacular. What better way for Chander to make an entrance into Chicago's marquee hotel then by turning heads and stopping traffic with a grand baraat down State Street. Their celebration even drew the attention of the 5 o'clock news team as they filmed the baraat from a helicopter! It was an honor to film this amazing celebration for these two families.
