Gina + Yathi’s Hindu Wedding

Gina is one of Alicia's friends and Stritch classmates. She and Yathi had a "double-header" wedding to accommodate the cultures of both of their families. (See images from their Catholic ceremony here.) We were invited as guests, and I also acted as a "supplemental" photographer at their request.

Their first ceremony was held at the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in Lemont. This was my first Hindu ceremony, and aside from the bold colors adorning the participants and guests, I was also struck by the use of many different foods during the ceremony. In general, it was just a laid-back, stress-free, interesting event. (Personally, I think other cultures could take notes to make their own wedding ceremonies somewhat less stuffy affairs.) ;] After the ceremony, all the guests enjoyed a delicious lunch of Indian food. Mmmmm...

Thanks for the invite, Gina and Yathi -- we had a great time! :]
