The beautiful part about weddings is that it’s a blending of two families. With Annette and Amit’s wedding, everything about their beautiful day was uniquely them. We started filming bridal prep at the Chicago Marriott Naperville. Then, their Bengali Hindu Ceremony took place at the Sri Venkateswara Swami (Balaji) Temple in Aurora. If you’ve ever driven on I-88 near Aurora, it’s hard not to miss the beautiful white temple. We were able to fly our aerial drone around the temple to get some nice establishing aerial video footage. Amit’s baraat started outside as he rode a white horse to the front of the venue; where Annette’s family was awaiting. The remaining part of their ceremony took place inside the temple.
In the afternoon, Annette had a second wedding ceremony at Meson Sabika. The beautiful four-acre estate was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor Christian ceremony, complimented with music by a Mexican mariachi band, a lively representation of Annette’s cultural background. We had such a fun time filming your beautiful wedding. May you have many years of happiness together!
