Grand Wayne Convention Center Hindu Wedding | Sushma + Indra We...

Over Labor Day weekend we took a trip to Fort Wayne, Indiana to film Sushma and Indra's wedding. Such a fun weekend! Our favorite part was during the ceremony- Sushma and Indra pouring rice over each other's heads...or maybe reaching for the rings in the vase!

The Henry Hotel Hindu-Muslim Wedding | Elora + Ajay Wedding Film

Elora and Ajay had a couple wedding events prior to their wedding day. Our favorite…their haldi. Family and friends took turns wiping turmeric paste on their faces. Some guests were more generous than others! Another favorite…when Elora’s dad asked Ajay what he saw in the mirror during their Muslim ceremony.

Hidden Falls & Troy Marriott Sikh Wedding | Vibhuti + Karan Wedding Film

Vibhuti and Karan have such awesome families! It’s kinda awesome that they’re now combined.

We met up with Shallu + Chirag a few weeks before their wedding weekend. We talked about doing something fun to introduce themselves to their families…big families on their wedding day.

We’re so excited to finally share their full love story! Enjoy!

Parul + Vijay Next Day Wedding Film | The Henry Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan

Parul and Vijay were married at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania in early May. This past weekend was their wedding reception. They chose Dearborn as the destination for their wedding reception because both of their families live in Michigan. But their story doesn’t start here. Parul and Vijay met over 10 years ago at a party in downtown Detroit. Since then they moved to Chicago.

We had a blast working alongside Rupali, Sam, and the rest of the Utsav Planners team (as usual). They did a beautiful job designing the grand ballroom at The Henry Hotel. We also met a new friend, the very talented Baz from Five Rivers Studio. He was so much fun to shoot with and he has an amazing vision!

The 97 Films Cinema Team wishes Parul and Vijay a lifetime of happiness! Safe travels and warm weather as they are heading to Dubai and Maldives for their honeymoon…soaking up the sun and hanging out by the ocean.

"All the happiness in the world."
