Luxmi + Rishi | Fresh Wedding Intro | To Build a HomeSeptember 8th, 2011
When Luxmi and Rishi asked me to have their Story Film and Same Day Edit to be played as a their intro at the reception, I had no idea we would end up with such a powerful film to start off the night!
Usually The Story Film is a separate piece about the couple and their story, however this time we needed to come up with a short film that would include both the couple’s profile as well as Same Day Edit, and not be too long as a night opener.
This film incorporated many meaningful and personal touches. Everything from the song choice, the lyrics and their story, even their favourite popcorn. It all comes together as a very personal and cohesive film.
When we shot this a week before the wedding, Luxmi and Rishi were still unpacking the boxes at the condo that they just moved into a few weeks back.
It was a great way to spend a day for them, both shooting and crossing some of the tasks off of their long wedding/moving in list.
The park that we shot at is the park where they go for a walk or a bike ride all the time. From their balcony you can see Luxmi’s parents house as well as the hospital where Rishi was born. Even the Ikea in the background is pretty familiar to them
This is a story of building a “new home” by Luxmi and Rishi. I enjoy the fact that showing them starting their life at a new place, in such a literal way, symbolizes their new journey together.
This Wedding Intro was a perfect way to get all the guests up and excited to welcome the newlyweds! Once the wedding party was introduced, the screen lit up and the following begun…
