Indian Wedding + Garba Photos! Poonam + Dutt!

Indian weddings do not just take place on one day. There were so many photos taken from Poonam + Dutt’s wedding…that I have to break it up into multiple blog posts! In case you missed it…you can view their Sangeet + Mehndi photos at their Sangeet + Mehndi blog post!

Their Indian wedding ceremony was held at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, IL. The Mandap and the rest of the decor was done by Dream Occasions…and be sure to check back for their reception blog post…Dream Occasions did a ridiculous job with the reception room!

There are so many things to take photos of during an Indian wedding – and it takes a lot of patience to get this type of photo!

After the wedding ceremony…all the family heads out to the car…where Poonam says ‘good-bye’ to her family…such an emotional moment- these are moments I am so thankful to be a wedding photographer! These are such special moments!

The Garba was a ton of fun and I wish I could have joined in all the dancing!
