Rusha and Jay : Married (Part 3 of 4)

Chicago Hindu and Sri Lankan Wedding
Wedding Date: May 30, 2010
Photographers: Thurston* and Mariae*
Wedding Planner: Ali Philips,
Engaging Events by Ali
Venue: Westin Lombard (Illinois)

OMG! When the wedding day finally rolled around...it was gorgeous! It was also the first time that I got to meet Ali with Engaging Events and the best part about Ali - besides her amazing work - is that she holds the room "empty and hostage" UNTIL we get a chance to shoot it. Most of the time, by the time we get to the venue...guests are already milling about...and well, you can't really kick them out for a "decor picture" - so we try to work around it. But Ali spoiled me. Each time the room was turned...she held the room hostage - kicked everyone out and called my cell phone (or got one of her lovely assistants to find me) so I could come down there and shoot to my heart's delight. :)

When I have loved the colors and vibrance of Indian weddings before...Rusha and Jay's wedding really made me fell IN LOVE with it. They not only their Hindu wedding ceremony...they also had a Sri Lankan wedding ceremony to honor Jay's side of the family. And as soon as I saw the reception decor...my heart skipped a beat. Stalkers, we are talking uplighting...pinspotting on each centerpiece and a UT AUSTIN cake to boot! Stalkers, be forewarned...this post contain A TON of wedding eye candy. :)

I started out the morning rolling out of bed....and rolled right into Rusha's hotel room for her getting ready. The perks of staying in the hotel that the wedding is taking place in!

Rusha had henna all the way up to her elbow and halfway up her leg. Plus I absolutely adore all the jewelry and bridal accoutrements.
