My mom and dad were invited to attend my cousin's wedding in Chicago a few months ago.  My Dad decided it was too far for him, so my mom called and invited me.  Of course I was ecstatic and eager to go with her.  For one, I love weddings!  There's a reason I am a wedding photographer.  My cousin Casey, and his beautiful (now wife) Aarathi were having a traditional Indian wedding, and we were invited to both the sangeet and the main ceremony.  I've never attended or worked a Hindu wedding, and I was excited to be there and celebrate with them. Second, we decided to go early and tour downtown Chicago.  I hadn't been to Chicago since I was a part of the St. Patrick's Day parade in high school, plus I was ready for a vacation!
