Nothing transcends boundaries and barriers more than an act of love, and a wedding such as this one is a testament to that undying fact. The union of Mallika and Neel was a pleasure for us to work on, and as a Toronto-based wedding videography and cinematography group, it came as a surprise when they came up north for their wedding from Washington DC and chose us for our services. In both wedding and photo-booth services, the family from the capital made sure to capitalize on the best we can offer. For the couple from across the border, most of their families and friends are in Toronto, and in a Hindu wedding ceremony fitting for the multiculturalism Toronto is known for, the celebrants held their special day on September 14, 2013, at the Grand Empire Banquet & Convention Centre (100 Nexus Avenue, Brampton ON L6P 2K9).

Wedding day started particularly early for both bride & groom to be. Mallika awoke only an inkling before 4 in the morning to begin preparations, and both Mallika and Neel were set and ready by 7 in the morning. Our crew arrived at the Hilton Garden Inn where the couple were staying and captured footage and pictures of the opening moments of an unforgettable day. Once everyone arrived at the convention centre, everyone began preparing for “baraat”, the traditional Hindu bridegroom procession. A particularly extravagant and lively display, Neel arrives and is welcomed by Mallika’s family, and the couple travel together to the wedding venue on a mare, accompanied by traditional Gujarati dancing and music from a live band. A fitting atmosphere for such a joyous occasion.
