Through internet searches and referrals, Sonal & Vishal saw our wedding cinematography work online and instantly fell in love. Our studio is based out of the Chicagoland area. So, they wanted us to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to film their 2-day Indian wedding. After I heard about their wedding venues, I knew this was a wedding we had to film. Their Sangeet and Garba/Raas events took place at the historic Indiana State Library. The marble floors and card catalogs against the colors of an Indian wedding were awesome. I saved the footage captured from this night for their final wedding film.

This wedding video trailer concentrates entirely on the wedding day. Another very historic landmark, Union Station in Downtown Indianapolis, was the center of all Sonal and Vishal’s wedding day events. First opened on September 20, 1853, it was the very first union station in the world! The architecture, pantings on the walls & ceilings, and various union station features throughout the building added so much character. We’ve filmed many Indian weddings. Anyone who has attended an Indian wedding before knows that performances are a staple. Usually, friends and family perform for the couple on the Sangeet night to entertain and bring the two families together. Filming at so many Indian weddings, I’ve seen many performances. The performances I witnessed by the Purdue University Raas Team have to top all of them. During both nights, the performers “wow-ed!” Sonal and Vishal’s wedding guests…a definite highlight of the weekend.

Sonal and Vishal, thank you for asking us to film your beautiful wedding. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Indian Hindu Wedding Baraat in Chicago

Roshni + Chad // 2 Days at the Westin Chicago Northwest Itasca


Hindu Weddings Traditions Unveiled DVD Banner Ad
An Indian wedding is full of so much color, fanfare, and smiling faces. It’s easy to get caught up in it all and start breaking out into a Bollywood-style dance. For this trailer, I took a step back and tried to encapsulate the sights and sounds surrounding an Indian wedding. The Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca has a beautiful lake with a fountain in the back of their property. As I was filming the Garba/Raas event on the eve of Roshni and Chad’s wedding, I looked out from the tent and saw an amazing orange sky. So, I ran outside and captured that shot. The next day at their wedding, I filmed the swans and ducks in that same pond and combined it with a few other nature-type shots to bring the viewer into the setting of this beautiful wedding.

Roshni & Chad actually live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but had always come to Chicago for visits with family. Roshni told me that Chicago is one of the best cities in the country! With a lack of Indian wedding vendors in Iowa, the couple decided to plan their 3-day Hindu wedding in the Chicagoland area. After knowing that fact, I am truly humbled that they asked us to film two days of their wedding events.
