The sun is shining bright during this outdoor photo shoot amidst the lush green gardens of Chicago, Illinois. Sachi Anand Photography captures amazing images of Karina and Allister as well as the rest of their dynamic wedding party. Our dashing duo is beaming with joy in their traditional red, white and gold Indian fashion attire as they stroll and pose for the camera. I just adore the pretty-as-can-be bridesamids, who are all smiles in their vibrant turquoise saris with matching umbrellas. We are only moments away from the big day, so feel free to browse through the gallery to see the sensational sangeet and pre-reception fashion portraits!

The highly talented Sachi Anand Photography and Wedding Films give us a magnificent look at an Indian wedding in the Windy City—Chicago, Illinois! Here's a sneak peek at the lovely bride and groom getting ready for their big day. Draped in gorgeous gold jewels, our Maharani is a visual stunner in her radiant ruby and white lengha sari! Her face is all aglow with flawless hair and makeup by Appease Inc. Smoked out shimmering shadows paired with a rich burgundy lip complement Karina's golden olive skin tone to perfection.

From the bride, on how they met:

"I met Allister in high school during Driver's Ed. We dated for 12 years before getting married and we have been soulmates from day one. We have been through so much together and I cannot imagine spending my life with anyone else!"

On the proposal:

"I thought we were going to have dinner with a couple friends. It was a Wednesday night and I was on a busy ICU rotation in the hospital, so there was no way I would suspect anything. Our friends "canceled" and we had a lovely dinner together alone followed by a walk along the lake front by the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. As we got closer to the final site, there were tea light candles lit along the way with the song "Marry You" playing in the background. Tea lights were arranged to say, "Marry Me" and he got down on one knee and proposed. Both of our families were there to enjoy the moment and he surprised me after with an impromptu trip to Miami to celebrate!"

On the hair and makeup:

"I looked on Pinterest and found styles I really liked. Pinterest helped me plan the wedding more than anything else."

On the lenghas:

"We went to India for a quick 11 day trip and went to several stores. I just looked at lengha after lengha until I finally found the ones I loved. The second I saw the outfits I wore, I knew I wanted them!"

Pre-wedding portraits are next!

Glendale, CA Hindu-Catholic Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Matei Horvath Photography shows us that this newlywed couple knows how to throw a party at the Brandview Ballroom Glendale in California! After being chauffered in style by Sky Limousine Service, this dashing duo lets loose on the dance floor to the beats of SOS Entertainment. And, I can appreciate a Maharani who does an outfit change during her reception. She looks fabulous in both a striking magenta and gold sari and a glamorous cream and gold evening gown, with a sweet mehndi design by Karishma Beauty Salon! And let's not ignore the man of the hour. Tobin looks very handsome in his tailored black suit next to the woman of his dreams. Guests had a blast as they toasted the twosome and dined to a delicious dinner prepared by Anoush Catering. A big hats off to Bridal and Event Lounge for not only planning every detail of this magnificent affair, but also supplying all the wedding rentals! Let's take a trip down memory lane to the gallery and experience all the splendor from the very beginning!

Glendale, CA Hindu-Catholic Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Become mesmerized by all the elegant floral and decor by Shawna Yamamoto Event Design at this Indian reception in California, images courtesy of Matei Horvath Photography. The Brandview Ballroom Glendale is enlivened with luscious cream floral arrangements that surround every nook and cranny of the room. The sweetheart table looks alluring with cascading lemon chiffon-colored roses framing the stage so perfectly. And, I so wish I could've been a guest at this sophisticated affair just so I could have a generous slice of that scrumptious three tier wedding cake made by Porto's. Follow me to the gallery to help you design your dream reception!
