If you are about to watch this video you are in for a treat! Our latest cinematic wedding highlights features one of the coolest couples ever! We absolutely love Jasmine and Avan. They are so sweet and so down to earth. We laughed, cried, and had the best time together throughout all their wedding events! They got married at one of our favorite venues, the San Mateo Marriott where we are the preferred vendors.
Now a few short weeks after the wedding we posted their wedding photos on our blog which you can view here! Now is the time we post their wedding highlights! Editing video takes so much more time than editing photos. While we can spend 20-30 hours editing images we can easily spend 50+ hours working on a wedding film and that does not even include all the final DVD authoring etc if that is part of the package. However, with all that time that goes into it, we still have always managed to stick to a three month turnaround time that I am very proud of. While other couples may wait 6 months to a year for their wedding films we have always delivered way faster than that.
This beautiful wedding weekend started with the Mehndi night with Neeta Sharma decorating our bride Jasmine, who we like to refer to as Princess Jasmine :-). The following day, in the Fijian custom, the bride does her Haldi 7 times throughout the day. We covered the evening portion where they also had a Sangeet and rituals familiar to Hindus from India. The third day was the wedding and reception. Both the bride and groom prepared for the day at the hotel in separate rooms. Myrium did Jasmine’s beautiful makeup and Jasmine wore a beautiful yellow Lengha. It was amazing!
After a short Bharat, our groom Avan did a Pooja with the priest. Here he performed rituals in honor of Lord Ganesh asking for the removal of obstacles and a happy marriage. The offering of ghee (butter), spices, and other things to the Agne (fire) was performed and then he walked to the Mandap to start the ceremony.
After their beautiful ceremony they had a fun cocktail hour with food provided by Raja Sweets and then lots of dancing and fun! It was the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day.
We hope you enjoy their Cinematic Wedding Highlights Reel and please leave us some comments below!
