This wedding is awesome. Awesome in that it’s the kind of wedding that you sort of always knew you wanted… and want each of your friends to have, too. It’s a fabulous blending of cultures with sophisticated stylings and the overwhelming love of one very amazing bride and groom. In other words, it’s Chicago perfection, all set against a glamorous Maude’s locale and captured in breathtaking images by Two Birds Photography. See them all in the full gallery.
From Two Birds Photography… This wedding was unlike most we have ever been to. The groom’s father is from Bombay, India and they really wanted his heritage to be a part of their celebration. The ultimate result was incredible, and we had so much fun capturing their beautiful event!
From the Bride… Brian and I met on December 1st four years ago. It was a cold and snowy day. We were so incredibly lucky that December 1st of 2012 fell on a Saturday. What a fantastic day it turned out to be. Who would have EVER thought it would be in the sixties?!
My vision for our wedding was French meets Indian with a Bohemian vibe. I was really inspired by Kate Moss’ wedding. We wanted a party not a stuffy wedding. The most important element to us was gathering our friends and family together over great food and drink. This was our opportunity to get the people who matter most in our lives in one room together for one night. Food brings people together, good food makes people happy and good drinks make them sing and dance. Almost everyone told us that the food and drinks were the best they have ever had at a wedding. And so many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We owe it all to Rebecca Royster, the GM at Maude’s. She and her staff made our vision come to life. They were kind and warm and funny and overjoyed about the occasion. Scottie McNiece, Maude’s music maestro made it happen with a soundtrack of old school Rap, Gypsy Jazz, Bollywood and House music. We danced the night away and as the evening ended we exchanged hugs and well wishes with our guests. The staff waived us goodbye as we walked out the door. We wouldn’t have changed a single thing about that night. Thank you to everyone who made our wedding a success. And certainly to the dynamic duo of Jake and Jennifer Moreland at Two Birds Photography for capturing our moment in time.
