Everything about Katie + Brad’s wedding was beautiful. Their day started off by getting ready with their friends and family. Katie and Brad’s beautiful son, Kellen, brought smiles to everyone’s faces. Katie and her bridesmaids then went to Pilcher Park Nature Center in Joliet, Illinois for an outdoor photo session. Their ceremony took place at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church near the historic downtown of Lemont, Illinois. The officiating priest had a special connection to Katie’s family. He officiated four generations of various life ceremonies for her family; including marrying her parents, baptizing Katie and now officiating over her marriage ceremony with Brad!

The bridal party then boarded a trolley and drove to The Morton Arboretum in Lisle. We had a great time walking around the grounds to get some stunning shots with Katie and Brad. The rain held off long enough and started to pour as we drove North to their reception at The Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, Illinois; where they danced the night away accompanied by tunes from Rod Tuffcurls & The Bench Press.

Katie, Brad {and Kellen}, we wanted to thank you for choosing us to film your day. May your beautiful family have wonderful memories for the rest of your lives.

An Indian wedding is full of so much color, fanfare, and smiling faces. It’s easy to get caught up in it all and start breaking out into a Bollywood-style dance. For this trailer, I took a step back and tried to encapsulate the sights and sounds surrounding an Indian wedding. The Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca has a beautiful lake with a fountain in the back of their property. As I was filming the Garba/Raas event on the eve of Roshni and Chad’s wedding, I looked out from the tent and saw an amazing orange sky. So, I ran outside and captured that shot. The next day at their wedding, I filmed the swans and ducks in that same pond and combined it with a few other nature-type shots to bring the viewer into the setting of this beautiful wedding.

Roshni & Chad actually live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but had always come to Chicago for visits with family. Roshni told me that Chicago is one of the best cities in the country! With a lack of Indian wedding vendors in Iowa, the couple decided to plan their 3-day Hindu wedding in the Chicagoland area. After knowing that fact, I am truly humbled that they asked us to film two days of their wedding events.
