Beautiful Illinois Sikh Wedding by Almond Leaf Studios

My husband is from California and I'm originally from New York. If there's something I know a little bit about, it's long distance relationships! I am excited to share with you a beautiful Sikh wedding of a couple who magically (and quite randomly) met during a vacation in Barcelona, Spain, and decided to date long distance (the bride from the states and the groom from England), and eventually move to be together in England. "Never say never" is the motto I've learned since meeting, dating and now marrying my husband. I know I never thought I'd leave New York and much to my surprise, love hits you hard and you're destined to be where your heart is.

Meet Jasmin and Chan. This sweet couple used vintage inspiration throughout their Indian wedding functions. Their Illinois wedding incorporated stunning hues of soft pinks and royal reds (with pearls and feather details, too!). Enjoy these highlights of their Sikh wedding ceremony captured by Almond Leaf Studios.

I love the incorporation of the light colors during the day and the rich, royal colors in the evening. Our bride, Jasmin, mentioned that she wanted a 1920s vintage feel to the reception, so she utilized vibrant reds, blacks and golds as her color scheme and adorned the reception hall with gold frames with rose balls hanging in the middle (against a back drape), lace tablecloths, gold candelabras, bouquets of red feathers and strings of pearls. It was classy, vintage-y and uber romantic.
