Whether you’re busy planning an engagement party or the big day it’s always fun to throw in seasonal favorites into the fold. One such way to do this is to take the ingredients that peak with the weather and mold them into a unique concoction. Today we came up with a few different cocktail or mocktails you can serve up at your event that will have leave your guests with a lasting impression.


First up we have the apple cider margaritas. Everyone knows an Autumn drink is not complete without either apple, pumpkin or cinnamon so this spiced drink will fit perfectly with your fall theme! Get the recipe here!


In keeping up with the fruits of the season we found a delicious Mulled Pear Sangria recipe. You can serve this drink warm and would be a great addition to your chai and coffee station!


No Fall inspired drink list is complete without adding ginger and this Ginger Beer Mojito is perfect for your beer loving guests who want to take it up a notch. With only four ingredients in it’s repertoire this drink is super easy to make!


This next drink had me salivating the second I laid eyes on it. For the brunch crowd how about substituting the mimosas and bellini’s and upgrading to a Lemon, Ginger and Pomegranate Sparkler? Not only does it look and sound delicious but the ingredients really pack an antioxidant punch- win/win!


For your guests who prefer to stick to mocktails we found a delicious Golden Apple Punch recipe. The best part is you can make it ahead of time and just add it to your beverage bar making it a low maintainence but still delicious drink!

Attention Windy City brides today’s real wedding takes place in your backyard! If today’s couple looks familiar it’s because we last saw them during their engagement session photographed by their photographer Rahul Rana Photography. Now we’re back with their hindu wedding ceremony and reception.

To kick off the day Rahul Rana Photography visited the bride and groom separately and gave them their moment in the spotlight with their individual portrait shoots. I love the image with our bride, Puja, laying on the table. She is absolutely illuminated by the light surrounding her and looks stunning!

Their ceremony decor is absolutely breathtaking. From the geometrically patterned ceiling to the candle light aisle and multi dimensional fabric draped mandap this backdrop was so inviting and romantic!

Rahul Rana Photography does such a great job at setting up his shots to be aesthetically pleasing. I love how he was able to take a simple cocktail hour shoot and turn it into something that looked fresh out of a Mad Men scene- gorgeous!
