We were ready to our new assignment which was marriage of south Indian couple Indu and Siva at Hindu temple Lemont in Chicago. They were intend more about Shan photography from our website and heard about us from friends and relative because we are known as best Indian wedding photography in Chicago. They were extreme impressed from our projects which we engage our personal website (Shan photography), then they took only few minutes to contact us. Then we went to the Hindus famous temple in Chicago which was Lemont temple for capturing the ecstasy moment of “Indu” and “Siva”. It was fascinated view in Chicago as Hindu religious and I was extreme excited to capture this temple into my camera. This temple represents one of the most impressive feats of devotion outside India in Chicago. The temple complex consists of four buildings, the Rama temple, Ganesha-Shiva-Parvati temple a community center connecting with two temples and Vivekananda spiritual center. The marriage of “Indu” and “Siva” gave me chance to know about this temple and I captured many picture of couple along with temple.
Girl family organized the Wedding ceremony which was decorated with different type of lighting material and colorful blanket which was also giving to it gorgeous look whereas both couples were following different rituals at their respective homes. According to the rituals, a boy (Siva) and his father wearer traditional clothing which was giving real south Indian look to the marriage.
A craziest moment came now, when both families and friends started dancing to climb the couple in their shoulder. I was also enjoying this wonderful moments and capturing many pictures of this moments. Before the wedding ceremony, bride and groom attended the Ganesha and Gowri-puja, which is conducted at the ma??apa. Thereafter, the couple asked to place a paste made from cumin seeds and jaggery on each other's hand. I took many photographs of this moments in my camera. Then, many customs were followed one after another in which brother in law of groom insert the rice into the hand of couple and the couple sprinkle this rice over their heads. Thereafter, my wait was over because another funniest moment came where in the groom adorns the feet of the bride with silver toe ring but girl abstain from it I did not feel that I am in Chicago. It was a Indian-living moment and I think that it enhanced my experience as a Indian wedding photographer.
