Dhara + Jaimin // Keep Her Smiling


Hindu Weddings Traditions Unveiled DVD Banner Ad

There’s more than one reason Dhara was smiling on her wedding day. Just a few days before their wedding, Jaimin ended up in the emergency room with a basketball injury. His father said (during his reception speech), “Whenever we have an event planned, he decides to play basketball and get some kind of injury.” All turned out well and Jaimin was able to dance his way through the Barat and up to the mandap, which was custom created by Elegance Decor.

We slowed the pace down on this wedding cinematography trailer, trying to capture the beauty and essence of a Hindu wedding. One of the more poignant speeches during the wedding reception was that of Dhara’s sister. She spoke of how Dhara and Jaimin have decided to move from Chicago to Los Angeles, California. Counting the number of miles between the two cities, she spoke of how her big sister will always be near to her heart.
