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.

By having a daughter, the father knows that one day he might receive “the call”. When Sipa’s dad received that call, he wasn’t ready to give up his daughter. Admittedly, he still wasn’t ready to give up his daughter on her wedding day. He detailed that during his speech, which was a highlight of the evening. We showcase it in this wedding trailer. His words provide an interesting look into what being father of the bride really means.

Sipa and Asheesh could not have been a more perfect fit for our style of filming. They loved our creativity and were willing to give us complete artistic direction, which always leads to amazing things.

As the story goes, they met while attending Indiana University. Sipa grew up in Elkhart, Indiana and wanted to have her wedding there. Traveling all over the United States while in residency, Sipa & Asheesh were able to grow their relationship into an engagement and marriage.

Traveling from Chicago to Elkhart, Indiana gave us great joy. We love filming Indian weddings because of all the beautiful colors and culture. This wedding was no exception and can only be described as “Epic”…from the decor to the clothes to Main Street being shut down for the baraat (groom’s procession). Their venues were also very neat. The garba/raas night was at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and their wedding ceremony took place on the historic Lerner Theatre stage. How cool is that?

Sipa & Asheesh, thank you for asking us to film your two days of events. We hope this trailer is a beautiful reminder of that amazing weekend.
