The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus Wedding
A wonderful whirlwind wedding weekend with Namita and Rajiv! Three days filled with love, laughter, dancing, family and friends! Truly a color extravaganza for the eyes! This multi-day event started on Thursday evening with their Sangeet celebration at Ashyana Banquets. Wow, such talent to be found in these two families! The evening started with Namita’s father singing a very touching solo to her and Rajiv. Other family members sang, danced and played the violin to everyone’s delight! Friday was a smaller religious event hosted at Namita’s parents home. Saturday was the day of the wedding at the gorgeous Hyatt Lodge on the McDonald Campus in Oak Brook, IL. The room selected by Namita and Rajiv for their ceremony is located so that it is surrounded by a wooded area overlooking the small lake on the campus. Stunning room and view! Namita was carried by two male relatives (one being her brother) to meet her father waiting at the bottom of the steps leading up to the Mandap where he would give her away to her waiting groom hidden behind the curtain. This began the official wedding ceremony. More traditions followed, the ceremony ended with the Indian tradtion of the groom having to buy back his wedding shoes from the grooms family. From here everyone moved to the lobby of the Hyatt hotel for cocktails before and evening of dinner and dancing. What a wonderful day! Congrats to Namita and Rajiv!
