Hitched: Maya & Sid’s Botanic Garden Wedding – Part 1

Happy Belated New Year! We’ve been laying low for the past few weeks, but are ready to dive back into our blog! We have a few more 2012 weddings to share…

First up, the beautiful June wedding of Maya and Sid at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. We’ve been keeping it under wraps because their wedding was just featured in the special issue of Weddings by Design by the prestigious Design Bureau magazine! (Sorry for the bad cell phone pic!)

Maya and I started her planning journey via Skype… she was thousands of miles away in India and finally arrived home in Chicago a mere three months before her wedding. Unlike the traditional Indian wedding, they wanted something a bit more intimate with just 175 guests (small, by Indian standards!), surrounded by nature, and nothing too excessive. Thank you Leo of Fragola Productions for these gorgeous images!

I absolutely love Indian weddings for their vibrant colors and amazing attire! Maya’s whole family looks amazing!

Guests were greeted into the English Garden with fresh mango lassis and watermelon juice… so yummy!

Stay tuned for their beautiful ceremony and reception!
