We got to admit, Indian wedding video productions are really some of the most festive events to cover! Gaurav and Nisha put together such a beautiful wedding within just a couple of months. It first started out with Gaurav and Nisha getting ready separately in their rooms at the Courtyard by Marriot Hotels in Culver City, CA. We had a videographer videotape Gaurav and another videographer covered Nisha. During their preparation there were several Indian traditions that took place. But when Gaurav, our groom, was ready to go they had the traditional Bharat ceremony in which Gaurav mounted a white horse in the parking lot while his whole side of the family accompanied him. There they began a festive parade filled with dancing and rhythmic percussion. This lasted for probably a good hour or so. This parade would eventually lead up to the ceremony hall in the hotel.
After all of the guests were seated it was Nisha’s turn to finally arrive to the ceremony. As she made her way escorted by her brother, we could see the emotion of joy and at the same time sadness in her parents’ faces. Just like in any culture, a wedding is bittersweet in which you are losing a child but at the same time you are happy for their next stage in life.
