After a great Sangeet the night before…I returned to the Chicago Hyatt Regency Ohare for day 2 of Amy + Atit’s wedding ceremony and reception! In case you missed it…be sure to check out their Chicago engagement photos and their Sangeet photos blog posts!
Here’s a photo of the gorgeous centerpieces done by Yanni Design Studio. I love the colors in the Hyatt Regency Ohare ballroom! Simply stunning! Make sure you scroll down to see more amazing photos from their reception!
Amy was getting ready in the penthouse suite at the Hyatt Regency Ohare…I love the colors and details in her traditional Indian wedding dress
A sweet moment with her dad before all the festivities begin…
Mom came by to help Amy with her earrings…

I love the colors, the draping, and the lighting on her wedding outfit
Atit was outside for his Barat. Mounted on a white horse and ready to dance!

I think the mother in law jumped the gun with grabbing Atit’s nose! =) It was pretty funny how surprised everyone was!
Amy’s family comes from the Sikh tradition…so they held a Sikh wedding ceremony! This was my first time photographing a Sikh ceremony- I love this aspect of being a wedding photographer…having the privilege to witness all these different wedding ceremonies throughout Chicago!

Amy’s entrance! I love how the strong lines of the Chicago Hyatt Regency Ohare help make a bold photograph-
During the Sikh wedding ceremony…everyone sat on the ground on white sheets.
Everyone came up to throw flower petals on the newlyweds!
Before they changed into their Hindu wedding outfits…we took a few creative photographs in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Ohare. I love the complimentary green and pink colors…and the strong horizontal lines broken up by the softness of their hand holding.
They looks so great! The pink looks great on the brown background!
For their Hindu ceremony…Yanni Design Studio did a phenomenal job with their Mandap! The top is filled with white and pink roses!!! Unreal!
