We hope you can sit down and fasten your seat belts for this one! Monica and Devang had an amazing two day wedding over Memorial Day Weekend in San Francisco at one of my favorite venues, the San Francisco Design Center!
Everything at this wedding was perfect, the couple, the clothes, the lighting, the decor, the guests and the list goes on and on! The Sangeet was held at the San Mateo Marriott, a venue where we are the preferred vendors and always enjoy shooting events at. They had a program filled with dancing and speeches, as well as, Garba and Dandiya.
On the day of the wedding the bride and groom got ready at their respective locations before heading to the Design Center. The groom was put in place where his beautiful bride would come and see him for the very first time. After which, the bridal party gathered for photos together before the groom headed outside to come officially with what is known as the Baraat, or procession of his family to the Mandap. The Mandap is where the Hindu priest performed the marriage ceremony and after taking seven steps together and proclaiming their love and devotion to one another they were officially married.
The evening party was off the hook! I mean we had the best DJ, DJ Salim, the best looking people in the Bay Area tearing up the dance floor, and amazing light! Of course I was on steadicam because that is how I like to roll at receptions! We think the party was the best part of the entire day!
If you have not had a chance to view the amazing photos from this wedding you can view them here! For now pump up your speakers and get ready because our goal with this film was to “rock you”! Enjoy!
