I got chills watching this South Indian wedding video. Not because it might snow for the first time in a hundred years in San Francisco, but because the talented team of Robles Video was behind the camera. In true Maharani style, Lakshmi’s wedding jewelry was passed down to her from her late grandmother. I hope that you are wearing waterproof mascara today, because this video is going to make you shed some tears.
From the owner of Robles Video, April :
On December 30, 2010, Bibhu and Lakshmi held their wedding at the Ontario Hilton Hotel. As we were covering Lakshmi preparing for her wedding, we found out that her jewelry that she was going to wear for her ceremony has been passed down from late grandmother, and was very special for her. Yogi Patel, the photographer, took some great pictures of them in the lobby before the baraat started, sometimes this is our only time to get some good footage of our couples. The groom arrived in a white horse drawn carriage, as Amit Kotecha played the dhol. Pundit Krishna from Malibu Temple conducted their traditional South Indian ceremony. In the middle of the ceremony, Lakshmi changed from her red sari to her gold sari, both which were stunning! After the ceremony, they had an evening reception at the hotel. My favorite part of the reception was the bharatanatyam performance, a classical south Indian dance. The invocation of lord Ganesh to celebrate this auspicious occasion.
We shot this wedding with three Canon 5D Mark II DSL cameras with 5 lenses per camera, glidecam, slider and tripods. We delivered a 10 minute highlight reel to the client along with a long reel (approximately 3 hours). The bride and groom usually love the highlights, while the extended reel is a favorite for the parents.
Happy weekend Maharanis!
