Chicago Botanic Garden Indian Wedding

Ridhima + Atul // Champaign + Chicago

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.

Westin Itasca Wedding

Inshu + Aneel // 2-day Wedding // Itasca

One of the many neat things about filming an Indian wedding is the fact that many people often travel from far countries like India just for the occasion. At Inshu and Aneel’s wedding, I met a lady who traveled from India to attend the wedding and had never stepped foot in the U.S. in her entire life. It’s the feeling of friends and family surrounding you on your special day that make it so memorable. Not only were guests attending Inshu and Aneel’s wedding in-person, but they also tuned in (from many countries, including India) to a live internet webcast, which we provided online.

In this trailer, you’ll see Inshu and Aneel passing each other in the elevators. I’ll have to give full credit to Inshu for orchestrating the idea for their first look. It required more coordination than I had originally thought. The idea was to film them with one camera going down together and the second camera would capture the two doors opening and the two of them seeing each other for the first time before their ceremony. The problem we encountered was that hotel guests on other floors were calling the elevators. So, Inshu or Aneel would head down in the elevator and had to stop at various floors. Needless to say, it became slightly entertaining to watch Inshu and Aneel go up and down on the elevators.

We filmed two days of events for Inshu and Aneel’s wedding: the mehndi party night, and the wedding ceremony/reception day. This couple had a great sense of humor, which you’ll see throughout their trailer. Inshu and Aneel, thank you so much for asking us to film your beautiful wedding events. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter together…
