We loved hanging out with Carolina + Eric earlier this month. The day started with the bride being serenaded with “Going To The Chapel” by her mother and aunt. These two decided to wait till the ceremony to see each other for the first time and we think it is clear from the grooms face that it was worth the wait! During cocktail hour we snuck away and got some incredible shots of them from the roof of The Gwen.  What an incredible day!

Over here at Gerber & Scarpelli we’re desperately trying to hold on to the last bits of warm weather. We got together with our friends at Clover Events to do just that! We love the use of bright florals and golden accents in this tablescape, coupled with the modern design of the West Elm dinnerware. We hope this inspires you to take dinner outside the next time you have guests!

Thanks to the Vendors for this fabulous shoot:

We are so excited to be spending the weekend with Sonali + Michael! They are having a multi-day affair that began last night with a Mehndi. This evening we will be joining them for a Garba, followed by a Puja on Friday, and their ceremony & reception on Saturday! Sonali + Michael met while attending Creighton College in line at a Fish Fry! They are incredibly hilarious, and we are looking forward to a weekend full of laughter and love!

Chicago Wedding Photography: Dipa+Brandon

Dipa+Brandon just had their first wedding anniversary and we're so excited to celebrate by looking back at their incredible wedding festivities! Over three very special days, these two merged not only their lives, but their families and cultures. Dipa comes from a Hindu background and Brandon a Jewish one, so their wedding celebrations honored both religious traditions in a beautiful and unique way! There are way too many amazing photos to share in just one blog post, so check back in for parts 2 and 3 of their wedding! The images in today's post are from the first day of festivities -- the Puja, Pithi, and Mehndi Ceremonies. Congrats, Dipa+Brandon on your first year of marriage!
