It’s not too often where the groom carries a sword around on his wedding day, but that’s exactly what happened at Rumiko and Amit’s wedding. They both live in Japan and Amit is a huge fan of anime (Japanese animation). So, it was only fitting that Amit brought his Japanese-style sword all the way from Japan for their wedding. Their wedding ceremony and reception blended both of their cultures; with Rumiko wearing a traditional Indian wedding saree for the ceremony and Amit wearing a formal Japanese kimono for the reception. They even cut the cake with the sword! We hope you enjoy this EPIC recap of their beautiful day.

The Mandir, or Hindu temple, is an amazing structure. Typically very ornate and built with beautiful architectural features, it seemed perfect to incorporate into Foram and Girish’s wedding trailer. When we arrived early in the morning to film Foram getting ready, the morning sun bounced off the temple’s roof.

Foram and Girish’s ceremony started with a small baraat outside of the Midwest Swaminarayan Temple in Itasca, Illinois and continued inside, where the couple saw eachother for the first time.

In typical Indian wedding tradition, as Girish approached the mandap, Foram’s relatives stole his shoes (they of course return them later in the day; only after a sum of money is given for them).

After their ceremony, we went to the Art Institute of Chicago’s gardens to do a photo shoot. Their intimate reception was then held at the Hotel Allegro in Chicago. A special thanks to Michael Rastall Photography for introducing this wonderful couple to us.
