07 Mar Luxury Multicultural Wedding – Jewish and Indian Wedding of Sacha & Emrin in Lodi, CA
All because two people met at a gym- a beautiful start to Sacha and Emrin’s love story. In fact, it was at their very first interaction at the gym that Sacha knew he had just met the future Mrs. Mount. Three days of wedding festivities to celebrate the union of two different cultures, this luxury multicultural wedding incorporated a Sikh wedding and Jewish wedding, and left all the guests in absolute awe.
The first day of wedding festivities kicked off with the pre-wedding ceremonies including the choora and chunni ceremony, the sangeet, and the jaggo. As wedding cinematographers, pre-wedding ceremonies are always a favorite to film because we get to capture the genuine emotion shared as both families exchange blessings and love for each other. Even more so, it was especially exciting to film the reactions of the groom’s Jewish family as they participated in the Sikh pre-wedding events. Colorful pastes, stunning jewelry, along with traditional songs and dances, the first day truly set the joyful, upbeat tone for this multicultural wedding.
The second day consisted of the Sikh wedding at the stunning Deshmesh Darbar Sikh Temple in Lodi, CA. This incredible temple featured gorgeous golden details as well as stunning florals along the Gurdwara altar and even in the fountains outside of the temple! The Anand Karaj, the Sikh marriage ceremony, incorporated many of the traditional aspects of Indian weddings and the most important – the four laavaan. 4 vows between the married couple sung as hymns as the couple walk around the sacred scripture. The seriousness in the room was evidently clear as the families watched the bride and groom take these sacred steps. Upon completing the fourth round, the bride and groom were now considered man and wife- a bond meant to last forever. But for our groom, even forever is not enough!
I’ve always known, ever since I met you, I want to spend forever with you. And forever is not long enough!
The Jewish wedding took place on the third and final day at Emrin’s father’s stunning property, Dhatt Family Estate. This vineyard estate was transformed into the wedding venue of their dreams and was the perfect setting to host the final celebration into the start of their forever. The ceremony was held on the front lawn and beautifully decorated with gorgeous white florals leading down the aisle to a breathtaking white floral archway. Officiated by the bride’s brother, the atmosphere was filled with so much love and emotion as the bride and groom shared their I do’s. The reception was held in an absolutely breathtaking custom built luxury tent, a completely customized installation by Amrit from Anais Events for the bride and groom. Filled with beautiful florals by the talented Flowers by Edgar, we were in absolute awe of how incredible and perfectly organized Amrit built the entire wedding from the ground up. A night full of heart-wrenching speeches, toasts, and of course lots of dancing, it was the perfect celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Mount.
The bride and groom chose to add a Same Day Edit to their wedding package which offered a huge surprise for all the wedding guests. Same Day Edits are always so much fun to do however they also pose a big challenge as we have to balance both filming the wedding and editing at the same time. We even magically included the grand entrance in the Same Day Edit video – creating a spectacular presentation. All the effort is completely worth it when we see all the guest’s reactions. Check out the Same Day Edit film below!
