Note to self:  “Always go on the road trip wedding to St. Louis.”

Sweta and Pavan’s amazing weekend marks our third road trip wedding from Chicago to St. Louis, and we had an unforgettable experience.  Spending time with this couple on their wedding day was a dream. Not only are they both gorgeous (I mean, c’mon!)– they are also caring and kind, warm and energetic… and they know how to party.  I am so proud of this collection of photos.  Sweta and Pavan, I hope you love them as much as we loved being there.  And thank you for treating us like part of the #swavan family.  Enjoy!

St Louis Renaissance Grand Wedding

Friday night, guests gathered for a Sangeet in the breathtaking Crystal Ballroom at the Renaissance Grand St. Louis.  The sun set behind us as friends and family toasted and performed for the bride and groom.

After Friday’s activities, we all got a couple of hours sleep before starting the big day on Saturday.  From quiet moments getting ready to a traffic-halting Baraat, to a ceremony and reception full of energy and big smiles– Saturday was a wonderful whirlwind of traditional and modern.

Thank you again to Sweta and Pavan, and their families, for letting us be a part of such a wonderful weekend.
