"Eternal Oasis of Happiness" - Epic California Indian Wedding of Neesha & Kulvir
*Part of this wedding film was shown at the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF)*
Once a year the sky opens up over the California desert, and this time it happened just minutes before our aerial drone was taking off. So with a smile on their faces, Neesha and Kulvir instead told our camera their story, while the thunder and lightning raged outside. After 10 years, the wedding was an inevitability, and no amount of meteorological phenomena was going to stop it, not even the grand storm that flooded the highway between Los Angeles and Bakersfield, and forced us to use the drone in the dark (the footage is ok after careful treatment in 4k).
With that out of the way, the rest of this epic wedding was simply, phenomenal. Neesha and Kulvir were super down-to-earth and always smiling even when things were running late - it's a big fat Indian wedding with a destroyed highway after all. The guests, some of which came from as far as India, were thrilled to see it all come together. DJ Hans blasted it. Cassandra from Fairy Godmother Events was the best wedding planner we had ever worked with on a destination wedding. And we were so happy to shoot at Hathaway Ranch, the biggest private estate we've seen with endless vineyard, and oil pumps right on the property! We'll stop gushing now - go and watch the best California wedding video you'll see!
