A Wedding on Wall St - Deepa & Anuj - New York, NY

After a long hiatus we are excited to share Deepa & Anuj's wedding highlights. Deepa's first email to us read "I was watching some of your videos and loved them, they are so us" - this set the tone for their wedding video! This was the beginning of a 8 month journey planning and preparing for the shoot in New York. Deepa and I clicked right away on email and soon afterwards we decided on an e-shoot the day before the sangeet. The e-shoot started in Central Park and we wrapped up late at night in Time's Square - and followed the grueling drill of the e-session with a fancy meal at McDonald's!

The sangeet was held at the Battery Park - tucked away along the southern tip of Manhattan. The cute little space was beautifully lit up with chinese lanterns hanging on trees and not to mention the Statue of Liberty in the backdrop. Sangeet was sort of a prelude to what was to come the next day at the wedding - non-stop fun. The wedding at Cipriani's- Wall St was Gorgeous with Mandap and decor/florals by Elegant Affairs. The day started with the Choora ceremony at the Andaz, followed by a baraat that blocked Wall St for a while and then the gorgeous ceremony at the Cipriani's. The reception was full of energy and action - DJ Juicy and Marco G pumped in energy into the reception gala from the get go and did not end until the wee hours.

A big heartfelt thanks to Deepa, Anuj and their families!

 

Nisha & Jiten- Mughal Mystique Wedding - Hua Hin, Thailand

 We are so excited to share with you the wedding gallery for Nisha & Jiten! After almost a week of festivities, the day of the wedding was a gorgeous sunny day in Hua Hin all set for a twilight wedding in middle of the infinity pool. Adam, Serge , Dwiko & Sasha were great to work with and we had a blast shooting stills and film with them. The mandap for the wedding was built on the pool and looked spectacular during sunset as the ceremony began. The day started with some remaining Garhi rituals from the night before and the morning ended with Jiten being thrown into the pool [ I have the Kodak moment ( Sasha & I were in the pool waiting for the moment ) - not being shared here ]. Baraat started with a Elephant and Jiten trying to get on the elephant - friends and family danced away - to the tunes being played from a mobile DJ booth - along the back corridor of the resort. Ceremony began at sundown and we witnessed a very gorgeous wedding while listening to the ocean waves. Fireworks and shoe bargaining marked the end of the ceremony and guests were shuttled over to Dusit for the reception [ to be blogged later ]! - The journey begins for Nisha & Jiten - wedding trailer/Same Day Edit coming soon!

 

 





Kunal & Shradha , Hua Hin , Thailand - Prelude to a Story

 

A sneak peek into Kunal & Shradha's wedding story. Sid & I had an amazing time filming and photographing with Shradha and Kunal in Thailand. Their families and friends showed great hospitality and it was a priviledge for us to be a part of their wedding festivities and capture their memories. From the day Shradha and Kunal got in touch with us, we knew that capturing their wedding would be a lot of fun and will give us the creative edge we always want. Shradha's impeccable dresses, Mrs Bhagchandani's detailed planning and Kunal and his family's very warm and generous hosting made the entire shoot (days and nights) a lot more fun than it usually is. We started shooting at the Erawan shrine in Bangkok the first day and then went to Wat Arun on day two followed by various other locations and finally we ended up in Hua Hin.  A big hug and thank you to Kunal and Shradha!..more to come soon..
