Pooja & Ben’s Chicago Indian Wedding Post 1


Ben and Pooja’s amazing wedding weekend was filled with so many colorfully fan-fricken-tastic images that I was having the hardest time figuring out how to split them into two posts. So! I decided to split them into 3.  Now you’re able to enjoy this colorful amazingness for the next three days.  Pooja and Ben’s families were filled with so much joy that I wish I could just plop the thousands of emotional and joyous images online. But, for today, you’ll be able to peek into Pooja’s Mendi and their wonderful Sangeet.  They even flew in Nomo for their Chicago Sangeet.
What is a Sangeet you may ask? Well, it is essentially a celebration before the wedding where the couple’s family and friends perform for the couple, and everyone has an amazing time. Check it out.
