Preeti and Rakesh’s Wedding Film

Yes, that’s right… our bride’s name is Preeti – pronounced “pretty” (or Preetee for the more traditional pronunciation that I’d hear her family call her) and for all practical purposes throughout her life – what a “beautiful” name! Preeti, Bella, Pretty, Beautiful – she’s our kind of bride!

Preeti and Rakesh wanted a Wedding Feature Film ONLY – specifically blended of their traditional Indian wedding day with a progressive perspective through the spoken word of their family’s and friends’ toasts. Even with over 16 toasts throughout their wedding reception, they did not want the longer Documentary version that we usually offer with our packages. However, Preeti knew exactly which toasts she wanted used for the narration of their film (without taking any notes on the day of) and it was so easy and creative to work with! The speeches were amazingly touching… from the story about Preeti being a miracle child to the loving honor of her father’s memory and to Rakesh’s sweet personality and disposition – this was indeed a very special day that we were proudly able to reflect in a wedding film that is uniquely their own!
