Up first are a few photographer’s favorites! Loved all of their rooftop Chicago Marriott Mag Mile wedding photos!
They changed outfits for their evening reception and we took photos outside! The University of Chicago Gleacher center is where they spent a lot of time together as they met while attending Booth! This little spot next to the Gleacher Center had a great view of the John Hancock in the background!
Simply stunning work by Mal from Kehoe Designs – the room decor made Renuka + Karthik’s Chicago Marriott Mag Mile wedding photos unforgettable!

We started their Chicago Indian wedding photos with a few detail pictures!
They started the morning with a little ceremony with the family-
Her sisters were all smiles when they saw her!

Her Kalira ceremony –
The room was all set for their ceremony!
Let’s just say…there was A LOT of rice being thrown about!
Notice how the beads collect in Karthik’s glasses! That’s gotta be worth something extra! =)
This game was no joke- Somehow Karthik’s “blowing beads” game was at an all-pro level!
Renuka’s competitive side coming out! =)
She holds both rings in her hands!
Renuka + Karthik started getting ready for their reception-
They wanted to take photos where it all began!
Love this photo – almost feels like they are walking between mountains!
We walked over to the riverwalk for a few pictures!
