Pete + Lindsey – Chicago Sikh Wedding

April 22, 2015



Sometimes in life you will walk away from an experience with a lump in your throat and zero words to explain it. This, this was it. You might recognize these two from the Wisconsin wedding that was shared just one week ago. Truth is, I thought that I might never see Pete and Lindsey again. As luck would have it, my phone rang on Thursday evening at 7PM with a voicemail from Pete. I got these butterflies in my stomach as I called him back and when he asked if there was anyway I could be available on Saturday to photograph their traditional Sikh wedding near Chicago, I cleared my calendar and said “yes” without hesitation. The night before I sat in a hotel room in pjs with Lindsey and Andra, her bridesmaid. We sipped wine, ate sweets, and talked life like three old friends would do. We forced ourselves to get some sleep but we all know that we could have stayed up all night chatting.

Saturday started early with wedding prep and fun. I wish I could elaborate on the character of Lindsey and Pete. These two have an affinity for their families, they are selfless, gracious, and two of the most thankful human beings I know. They exemplify the idea of putting others first and truly would move mountains to be together. The opportunity to not only photograph another wedding for them but to spend one more day among their friends and family was a chance I wouldn’t lose! The best part? I was able to experience a culture and customs that have truly touched my heart and left me in awe. These words? Well, I’m struggling to string them together. My prayer is that the photos will do the talking. Pete and Lindsey have changed my life, they have impacted me, made me feel valued, and affirmed that I am in the right industry. Their families made me one of their own, I was truly a bridesmaid with a camera, and these moments give me goosebumps every time I imagine reliving them. What an exceptional honor, truly.
