Chicago Indian Wedding VIdeo

Ridhima + Atul // Two States: One Love


Hindu Weddings Traditions Unveiled DVD Banner Ad
Ridhima and Atul’s story begins during their college years at the University of Illinois. That’s where they met, and as the story goes, the rest is history. Champaign also happens to be the hometown of the bride, and is where they started their wedding weekend festivities.

Full of emotion, the bride’s parents sat down with us to reminisce about raising Ridhima into the beautiful woman she has become. Her father held back tears as he talked about preparing to give her away to her groom. We also filmed with the couple at the beautiful Japanese Gardens and on the U of I campus in Champaign.

The Sangeet was held at Refinery. A joyful energy was evident from all in attendance at this colorful celebration. Family members performed intricate Indian dance choreography to entertain the couple during the Sangeet. The women were also decorated with Mehendi, a well-known Indian wedding tradition.

This film just tells the first part of Ridhima and Atul’s story. To watch the wedding trailer, which showcases more of this incredible event plus highlights from their Hindu wedding day, CLICK HERE

Wedding at Lemont Hindu Temple of Chicago

Seema + Amit // Same Day Edit

Wedding at Lemont Hindu Temple Chicago

When I first meet with Seema and Amit to talk about filming their wedding, they told me about their ceremony location, which was the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago in Lemont, Illinois. I started to think of how cinematic this location was. We’ve filmed outdoors at the Temple in the past, but never inside any of their buildings. Most people around Chicago have seen the Temple-either driving by it or in photos. It’s an amazingly beautiful structure.
Camera Crane at a Chicago Indian Wedding at Lemont Hindu Temple
We brought in the camera crane to capture some aerial views of the baraat (groom’s procession) and exterior shots of the Temple. I believe this is the first wedding we’ve filmed, which included rituals from the Konkani culture. Each time we film an Indian wedding, the beautiful traditions remain as a centerpiece to the wedding day, which continues to be our focus of the trailer and wedding films we produce.

Throughout the two days of filming their wedding events, our crew of 9 worked seamlessly to put together a Same Day Edit trailer and show it at their reception to over 600 guests on two large 9’x12′ projector screens. The crowd watched in amazement as we included portions of the Sangeet, Baraat, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception in the trailer. It was a true highlight of the evening!

Seema and Amit, thank you for asking us to film your beautiful wedding events. We enjoyed meeting your family and friends. This will be a wedding and a couple we won’t forget…
