Today we’re featuring the multicultural wedding of Reema and Eric by Idalia Photography. Reema and Eric were married in an outdoor ceremony at the Brooklake Country Club. The bride and groom were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony under a vibrant mandap and then changed for their portrait session and reception.

Idalia Photography did such a wonderful job especially considering this was their first ever Indian wedding! They were on hand to capture all of the key moments and their composition in the portrait shoot is just stunning.

To see all of the images from today make sure to visit Reema and Eric’s photo gallery.

I am such a sucker for the shoe shot! I love the contrast between the bride’s mehndi, the stark white wedding gown and jeweled shoes- in my opinion these are always frame-worthy! I am also having major dress and jewelry envy of all the bridesmaids. The different shades of coral with the turquoise jewelry pop are perfect for an outdoor ceremony!

“As soon as we met Reema and Eric we immediately connected with them and were beyond excited that they trusted us to photograph our first Hindu wedding ceremony. All throughout the wedding planning process, Reema took the time to explain the customs and traditions that we would document on their wedding day and we loved learning about every single element of an Indian wedding day. From the lively arrival of the groom during the Baraat to the exchange of garlands, to the tearful farewell to the bride by Bidai, every element of their wedding day was emotional. Their ceremony took place under a vibrant and colorful mandap where we had the privilege of documenting the fascinating rituals and traditions of Reema’s family. After their ceremony, Reema changed into a beautiful white gown and Eric into a khaki suit, perfect for their portraits on the golf course and then they celebrated their marriage with one of the most energetic groups of family and friends that we’ve ever met. My favorite part of the reception was the Bollywood-themed dance and skit that Reema and Eric’s friends and family prepared for them. It was just one of the many ways that everyone showed the couple how loved they are. “

Happy Monday! I am absolutely loving today’s CineMonday Same Day Edit of Sarvy and Steve’s wedding orchestrated by r5 Studios. Now I might be a bit biased because I have been listening to Beyonce’s XO nonstop these days, but it was absolutely such a great choice for this video.

r5 Studios did something so different when editing this because they weaved together footage of the couple showcasing their personalities during a super fun date with footage from their actual wedding day. Watching the two types of subject matter weave together kept me so captivated. I also love how well they synchronized the words from the background song with the events from the day-flawless!

Must See Moments:

  • The mehndi covered hands pressing play for the background music- so artsy!
  • Steve and Sarvy ziplining!
  • Love the first glimpses of Steve and Sarvy on their wedding day
  • Sarvy kissing her dog
  • Steve winning Sarvy a prize at the Carnival
  • The super cute “Uncle Steven here comes your bride” sign
  • The bride and groom taking their Pheras during the Anand Karaj
  • All of the emotions during the doli
  • Love that the couple ended their Same Day Edit making a “XO”

Attention future brides! Today we’re featuring a styled shoot so gorgeous you’re going to be pinning the images non stop onto your wedding boards. Documented by Rahul Rana Photography and styled by Elegance Decor and Indian Wedding Site’s very own Chandani from Events by C, this Great Gatsby inspired shoot is flawless. From swoon worthy clothing, jewelry and makeup to a venue and décor so elegant you have to see it to believe it, this shoot has everything!

Make sure to visit the photo gallery to see all of the images and stay tuned throughout the post as Rahul Rana Photography shares the behind the scenes inspiration!

1a Indian Styled Bridal Shoot5a indian bridal rahul rana styled shoot 6a indian wedding bridal jewelry

“Swetal (Elegance Decor) and Chandani (Events by C) worked very closely and shared countless ideas before deciding on the theme – Great Gatsby with a modern Indian twist. Once the venue, Chicago’s historical Palmer House, was chosen for the styled shoot, the ideas were narrowed down to fit the already beautiful interiors of the grand ballroom. Swetal and her team created a stunning backdrop with gold sequin fabric and white draping. A table was adorned with a beautiful white feather peacock and the other with a lush, tall centerpiece that was dripping with pearls. Though the décor did have very traditional Great Gatsby elements such as white feathers and pearls, also included were tons of gold sequin fabric and minimalist place-settings to incorporate current trends into this vintage look.”

“The 3 different bridal looks on our model, Samy, were provided by Taj Sari Palace, Chicago. Each of the looks represented highly different styles of a bride that fit into the theme. The first look was an elegant, flowing red sari with a fitted long sleeve blouse paired with a gorgeous pearl set. It’s the perfect look for the bride that loves the vintage, glamour style. The next look was a deep purple lengha that just screamed royalty. This look is for the over the top bride who dresses like a queen her self, but also has her wedding venue look no less than a palace. Our third and final look was for the modern bride who wants to incorporate rich elegance into her wedding, but in the simplest and most graceful way possible.”

Wholly glitter! Here’s a fun pair of shoes by one of my favorite colorful designers, Kate Spade, where the picture doesn’t do justice to the glamour of the glitter. Apparently, although the images look like the fabric is metallic mesh, it’s actually large, loose glitter- which makes it even more fabulous! This style is called d’orsay, and it’s intended to make your feet look lean and long, while showing small area of skin, and leaving an element of surprise. A three inch heel is a solid height for a long night of dancing. These shoes are a great staple and will definitely carry you through fall, winter, and spring!
