We had an amazing time filming Ridhima + Atul’s 2-day Indian wedding. Our coverage started in Champaign, Illinois; where Ridhima and Atul first met while attending The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We walked around campus and the Japanese Gardens to film various scenes. The night concluded with a Mehndi and Sangeet party at Refinery.

We edited the footage from that day and showed it the next day at their reception. We love doing Same Day Edit/Next Day Edits because we get to see everyone’s reaction to our work. You can watch that video here and see the couple’s reaction:

Ridhima + Atul’s wedding day was nothing short of EPIC. Their Hindu Wedding took place at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Their majestic fabric-draped mandap sat on a brick terrace at the McGinley Pavillion overlooking Evening Island pond. Atul’s baraat with him on a white horse created quite a group of onlookers as they weaved their way through the gardens. The evening’s festivities concluded with a reception and entertainment at the Intercontinental O’Hare.

Every Hindu wedding we film is so interesting and unique because regional traditions are infused into the ceremonies. Puni and Narayan’s wedding had influences from the Telugu region of India, which is in the South/South Central part of the country. Telugu is one of the six classical languages of India.

Three years ago, Narayan and Puni met. They were both just starting their residency. Narayan was holding a party at his apartment to meet the new interns. Puni also attended with one of her bridesmaids. As Narayan tells the story, he was trying the whole night to get in a few words with Puni.

Narayan found out that Puni was headed to a Chicago night club the next evening. Initially, Narayan wasn’t too excited about that because dancing wasn’t one of his strongest traits but he gathered a few friends and some courage to show up at the club that night. However, much to Narayan’s dismay, Puni never showed. She stood him up. As he describes it, that’s the night he decided he was going to marry “that girl”.

Puni and Narayan’s wedding ceremonies kicked off with the Mehndi and Sangeet at Danada House in Wheaton, Illinois. That night, storms rolled in, which we were able to capture some pretty cool outdoor timelapse footage of and include in their wedding video trailer. Their beautiful ceremony and reception was held at the Westin Itasca.
