Priyanka & Karthik | Intercontinental Chicago | Indian Wedding Photography

We are back with part two of Priyanka and Karthik’s beautiful wedding! Here on the main wedding day we have the baraat (complete with a horse ridden down the police-cordoned street), the ceremony (with gorgeous ombre chairs set in the round), and the reception (with a heartfelt father-daughter dance, lovely speeches, and a special performance by the bride’s brother). See the highlights below.


An absolutely stunning ceremony setup!

After a little break in the afternoon, it was time to get ready for the reception!

Another beautiful setup in the fully transformed space.


The bride’s father has a neuromuscular disease that keeps him in a wheelchair, but that didn’t stop them from a really sweet father-daughter dance!

The bride’s brother gave some really wonderful performances with his college a capella group, Penn Masala.

Congratulations, Priyanka & Karthik!
