Meet Jaime and Jobil – seriously the sweetest and most sincere couple out there! Theirs was a traditional Indian Catholic wedding that took place in the solace of their suburban church, followed up by a pretty fly reception at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
What is cool and unusual about my relationship with this couple is that Jaime and Jobil booked me without ever meeting! That’s because I shot the wedding of their very good friends, Jimmy and Jency, several years ago (which coincidentally was my break into the Indian wedding community) and since then, have been referred through their network for countless occasions.
The entire wedding day (13 hours!) was graced with tradition – everything from the minute the bride left her house with her sisters following behind with lighted lamps to the ceremony when the groom tied a thali around her neck as a symbol of long lasting bliss. And let’s not forget about all the gorgeous details – the bride’s gorgeous peacock blue wedding shoes to match her bouquet, the stunning white wheels they rolled up in, and the ornate crystal and glass centerpieces. And of course, what Indian wedding would be complete without personalized flair – you know, giant cardboard cutouts of the bride and groom, glowsticks, fog, the whole nine yards!
I rarely book with clients I don’t meet with first. But when we met for the first time at their engagement session, it was instant chemistry between the three of us – and I’m pretty sure that’s because Jaime and Jobil are just so darn nice! I knew right then and there that they were going to have a super awesome wedding because they are super awesome people – and I hope these photos captured the spirit of the big day and their bright personalities. Scroll through for the magic of Jaime and Jobil’s wedding day!
All the best to you both, Jaime and Jobil! I’m so blessed to have clients like you.
