Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Beautiful Indian Christian Blend

Talk about a memorable wedding venue! How about getting married where the Obamas tied the knot in October of 1992? Right? Well, that's what Laura and Anuj did!! They got married at the South Shore Cultural Center in Chicago. And, I mean... Such an amazing venue! OMG! I think Lisa with Spark + Tumble Photography said it best when she said, "The gorgeous architecture and the foliage echoed the vibrance of their nuptials, which artfully intertwined traditions from each of their cultures." 

Bridey, here is a couple who stay true to both of their traditions (Indian and Christian), and threw an amazing party! Not only is everybody is having a fantastic time (scroll down to see the amazing "action" pics!), but the clothing and decor are absolutely sensational! So, enjoy, and feel free to take a few pointers from Laura and Anuj!

Amazing henna and a stunning sari!Love the bangles!LOVE LOVE LOVE the sherwanis the groom and his men are wearing!!Using a bicycle for the baraat? Priceless!!! (Traditionally, the groom arrives for the ceremony or the wedding venue on an elephant or a horse.)Gorge garlands for the ceremony!I can't... This pic is just too beautiful.Clearly, everybody is having a fantastic time!Time for Anuj to change his clothes too.Gotta love a shoulder kiss! OMG! I can't get enough of Laura & Anuj's wedding!!!
