Millie & Narayan’s Hotel Macdonald Hindu wedding was nothing short of grand elegance. I’ve known Millie since we were in grade 7 and although work and life have separated us over the years, I was honoured when she asked me to photograph her wedding. Planning an Edmonton wedding when one of you lives in Toronto and the other in Chicago…let’s just say it has its challenges. Luckily these two had a great team working with them to help everything run smoothly.
Millie first met Narayan on a work trip to Chicago, and the sparks flew! This summer I visited them in Chicago for an engagement celebrating the city they’re going to make their life in together. Fast forward to their wedding week, and members of each family came together in Edmonton to meet each other. Pre-wedding events allowed the families to get to know each other, and their Hotel Macdonald Hindu ceremony made everything official. The next day, everyone celebrated again with an elegant reception at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Wedding planning can be stressful, and it was great to see everyone let loose! Here’s a look at their celebrations.
I had a couple of photographers helping me on this wedding – here is a look behind the scenes with the team!
