I don’t even know where to start with this one. Should I begin with describing the amazing settings? How New England nautical meshed with a traditional Indian celebration? Or perhaps I should go into detail about how it felt like joy and color exploded and then rained over the entire weekend? Or what about how we’ve maybe never shot this much beautiful and breathtaking footage in such a small amount of time? All of the above ring true, but I think I know where to start…with Nikhil and Shweta. Two of the most wonderful people in existence. I think I’ll start there.
Nikhil and Shweta are, simply put, ideal. They’re super invested, incredibly genuine, crazy in love, and filled with loads of creativity and trust. Most importantly though, Nikhil and Shweta are two insanely cool human beings. We had the pleasure of hanging around for their weekend-long celebration and never once felt like we were “on the job.” We were like children in a candy store–we couldn’t get enough.
Leading up to the big weekend, the weather predictions were bad. We were supposed to get a weekend filled with rain. We obsessively checked the forecast and the predictions stayed unfavorable. But, if Nick and Shweta’s trailer is any evidence, the universe was smiling down on us that weekend. We worked with some of the most beautiful light we have EVER worked with. Period. And lucky for us, we had some crazy amazing venues to work with alongside that light. The Hyatt in Newport was an awesome place to kick things off on Friday, but the true star of the weekend was Mount Hope Farm in Rhode Island. I could ramble on for hours about the beauty of that place, but I think I’ll let the footage do the talking.
Super duper special thanks to our fellow vendors from the weekend. Leila from Leila Brewster Photography is just the coolest, and we can’t wait to work with her again one day. Sarah True from True Events was beyond helpful and wonderful, and we can’t wait to collaborate once again. Thanks to the DJ on Friday Krupal Soni, and band from Saturday The Elements–both tore the roof off and got everybody groovin’ in no time. Music in the trailer is “Dark Matter” by Andrew Belle, licensed through The Music Bed.
We’re so filled with excitement to share this trailer. To be able to do justice to such a stunning, epic weekend feels phenomenal. Nick and Shweta–you two are our spirit animals. Congrats again and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!
