Monica and Kruten’s Gujarati wedding was a multi day celebration of EPIC proportions. I began to get to know them at their engagement session where we took them to Starved Rock for. They are a sweet, kind and very easy going so they were up for any adventurous idea we came up with!
Although we shot over a handful of pre-wedding events for them including engagement, mehndi, two haldi ceremonies and sangeet, I wanted to focus on the wedding and reception.
Because these two events were the culmination of the festivities and I feel like a climax of emotions hit everyone on this day. I think we were all sad that all the laughter, dancing, singing, and merry making was coming to an end. Nonetheless, the hindu wedding ceremony and dinner reception which took place at Stonegate Banquets in Hoffman Estates was stunning, colorful and every bit of eye candy that you can imagine. No words can describe how much fun I had capturing Monica and Kruten’s wedding so I will let the photos give you a glimmer of their big day!
