Mary + Nick are the kind of couple that radiate joy and love! We couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces all day. The celebration started at Hotel Arista in Naperville where both the groom and bride got ready. We spent the rest of the day at Noahs Event Venue where we watched Mary + Nick experience so many firsts as newlyweds. What an incredible day!

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!
