Pooja & Dhru Destination Indian Wedding // Newport, Rhode Island
It was our first time shooting in Newport; what a beautiful location. Who needs Mexico when Newport is only four hour drive from New Jersey. Pooja & Dhru’s wedding took place at Belle Mer which is located on the Goat Island, Newport – RI. It is glamorous and contemporary aura provides the perfect venue for an exquisite oceanside wedding. Blue water, Beautiful day of month of June was perfect for outdoor ceremony and drone shots.
Generally speaking, we get booked in year or two in advance but somehow Pooja & Dhru found us about two months before their wedding day. It was pure luck that the dates were open and we got pleasure of capturing their Sangeet, Vidhi, Wedding & Reception. We all knew that we had very little time to prepare for the wedding but dedication from Pooja & Dhru and long phone conversations made it all possible. Shooting Sangeet and backyard Vidhi was nothing but fun and wedding day went smoothly without any hiccups; just perfect. Thanks to great group of friends and family.
Pre-wedding shoot was hot and sunny. Being on the beach is always fun but not when one is running around with stabilizer unless you have bunch of water bottles. Thanks to Pooja & Dhru for being in the sun for, I believe, 5 hours.
This is the longest highlights we ever created because I had so much GOOD content to work with and so many beautiful moments. My fav is at 7:14 when Pooja’s mother is letting her pallu go during the bidai. Now that I am a father of one daughter, I knew how she was feeling and I was just lucky one to get that shot. Sometimes it is all about being at right place at right time.
