If there is one word that sums up this couple’s wedding celebration, it has to be: FUN! Nitasha & Otis went to great lengths to make sure their guests had an unforgettable evening. We had a blast too! We especially enjoyed watching their families experience two very culturally different ceremonies: a Hindu ceremony followed by a Christian ceremony; each family truly embracing the others’ customs and rituals. Perhaps our favorite part of the celebration was the Baraat, where the dhol player led Otis, his groomsmen, and family to the entrance of the ceremony, where they were met by Nitasha’s family. The energy from the percussion and the guests lining the hallways of the Renaissance Hotel was absolutely contagious! It set the tone for the rest of the evening. Later that night, after the Christian ceremony, the newlyweds and their bridal party started the reception with a choreographed dance, which got every guest on their feet. DJ Paradime, who is known for his unique mixes and club-style DJing, kept the party going the rest of the night.
The speech we included in this film was given by Nitasha & Otis’ close friend, Ms. Karen. She first introduced the couple! It’s apparent that N&O have given Ms. Karen much strength and joy in her recent fight with cancer, and we were deeply touched by her message to the couple.
N&O: From the moment we met you for drinks at City Beverage, we knew you’d be such a fun couple to work with! Thanks for living up to our expectations and for choosing us to document your big wedding celebration! We’re so excited for all of the great things you’ll do as a couple and are so happy you’ll be staying in this area for awhile.
