After watching this film a good thirty times each, we thought it would be a good time to add in some more details about Raj + Carolyn’s rather epic wedding.
We knew in flying to TN what an opportunity we had with the two cultures coming together. On Friday night we shot the rehearsal for an hour or so, and in hearing Raj’s welcome toast, the idea for the whole piece was born. On Saturday, the day started with a Catholic ceremony and then the night transitioned into the garba (which is the dancing you see before the baraat). Sunday was filled with the Hindu ceremony with Carolyn getting ready again, but this time in an entirely different way. The diversity between the two days, yet their similarities was what was so striking to us and was something we wanted to try and convey with this piece.
