This is part two of a Catholic/Hindu double-header wedding. In case you missed part one, you can find the Catholic ceremony here, and you should definitely check out the couple's holi powder e-session and downtown Chicago e-session if you haven't yet.
The day after their Catholic wedding, we made our way out to The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows for Chayal and Emil's second wedding -- a traditional Hindu affair filled with lots of food, dancing, various entertainment, and even the groom entering on a white horse! We were like kids in a candy store trying to capture all of the incredible colors surrounding us that day. From the bridal party's saris to the guests outfits to the colored lights illuminating the mandap, we couldn't help but get a little snap-happy. (Did we mention there was a horse?!)
For a 16-hour(!) day with over 300 guests, it's no small feat to capture all of the special moments and everyone's "good side." I want to especially thank my lovely wife, Alicia, for second shooting and getting all of the angles I might have missed. Also sending a very special shout out to our fantastic assistant, Helen -- an exceptionally talented wedding planner from the UK who recently moved to Chicago. Our only regret is that we didn't meet you sooner before we moved away! Thank you for all of your help, and most especially for noticing and fixing all of the little details that saved me hours later in Photoshop. :]
Chayal and Emil -- thank you both so much for letting us capture your special day! It was truly our pleasure and an experience we're still talking about. We wish you both the best of luck as you begin your new life together in Cleveland!
