I was back in Chicago to photograph the beautiful, exciting, and colorful wedding of Kiersten and Feanil. What an amazing event! A special thanks to my friend Ana Miyares for coming out and shooting with me. We lucked out with a beautiful day (I had the sunburn to prove it) at Independence Grove.

The beautiful ladies!
Sexy bridemaids with awesome parasols

The mandap looked fantastic!

One of my favorite parts of the ceremony is when the guests throw flower petals at the bride and groom as they're circling the mandap. I always up with some petals either in my hair, down my shirt, or in my camera bag.
What's a good Indian ceremony without a little shoe stealing?
I love the moms' expressions here
Playfully tossing petals with their feet
The gorgeous Kiersten!
Feanil looking sharp
I enjoy the movement in this one
I was excited to have a full moon for this shot
Apparently the reception went on a tad too late for this little guy
The slideshow! This is a particularly long one, so please be patient while it loads.
