It was an honor to again be filming for this family. This video is a same day edit, which was shown at the reception. We started filming 2 days before the wedding at the Henna party, which we saw many familiar faces. The Henna designs are always amazing and so detailed, intricate and beautiful. It took about 1 hour to do the tops of Kelly’s hands and then another hour for the palms and then yet another hour for the tops of the feet. Kelly’s soon to be husband had a free hand Henna design on the back of his neck. On Day 2 we filmed the Sangeet, which is one of our favorite things to film. There is so much color and the dancing is fun to watch. It is truly a display of excitement and celebration from family and friends to the couple. We love Indian food and we started our fix of the much anticipated cuisine at the Sangeet. Shaadi Entertainment was pivotal in keeping the dance floor active and inviting.
Day 3 the wedding day, we had perfect weather, which allowed us to also shoot some aerial drone footage. Kelly was so pretty and she had the most infectious smile. Kelly dressed for the Hindu ceremony and her Sari looked gorgeous but you can’t imaging how heavy the Sari is with the cloth thickness and jewels. Non the less, Kelly carried it very well. The Hindu ceremony is full of symbolism based on centuries of cultural influence and it is always great to witness. After the Hindu ceremony they had a Christian ceremony. It was quite evident that Kelly and Arjun have not only a romantic relationship but a spiritual connection with each other.
Congratulations Kelly and Arjun and thank you to your entire family for their hospitality and making us feel welcomed.
