Chicago Indian wedding of Kiersten and Feanil

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.

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?

Apparently the reception went on a tad too late for this little guy
