Glamorous and Fun – those are two words to describe Micah and Davida’s wedding NIGHT. That’s right, we said night! The Royal Scott Wedding took place in the evening outside the Westin Hotel in Huntsville, Alabama. Full of laughter, culture, and a whole lot of sparkle, this bride and groom celebrated their union in style. Micah and Davila’s relationship, as described by them, was full of “EXTRA-ness”. What started as a playful, but determined bet bloomed into a beautiful relationship. From DM’s to dates to the actual proposal, it was clear that Micah and Davida were just the “extra” that they needed in a forever partner. The wedding planning incorporated the essence of their relationship with sparkle and glamour in every detail. The couple originally planned for a destination wedding in Georgia, changed the venue to the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans, and then finally decided to settle at the Westin Hotel in their hometown of Hunstville, Alabama. The morning of the wedding, we filmed the bride opening a sweet gift from her soon to be husband while reading a long, heartfelt note. The bride wore a custom pink gown made by Elarose Sweet Weddings before changing into her stunning and EXTRA sparkly wedding gown by the same designer. The groom, on the other hand, wore Tom Ford tuxedo with his own flare of bedazzled shoes. Classy and timeless, the designers were the perfect fit for Micah and Davida’s special night. As wedding videographers, we are always excited for new ideas, and an outdoor wedding at night was definitely new. However, with a night wedding comes many challenges – the first being lighting. It was important to get enough lights in the right positions so that every important person was well lit during the ceremony. Working closely with the wedding planner (before and during the wedding), we were able to use 3 Aputure LED lights (one of them my favorite, the Aputure 120d II) powered by huge batteries to create a perfect three point lighting setup for the ceremony. Looking at the footage, the night ceremony footage turned out AMAZING!...

There is something special about a love that is developed over time and it was evidently clear that this was the kind of love shared between Dimant and Shivani. Their youthful banter made for a refreshing and deeper emotional experience for this Indian Wedding at Auburn Hills Marriott in Michigan. Filled with dancing, toasts, and lots of tears (of joy), this Indian Wedding film will immerse you into the cultural and beautiful wedding story of Dimant and Shivani. Though this was not a destination wedding for the bride and groom, it was a destination wedding for us at Aperina Studios. As Indian Wedding Videographers, destination weddings are challenging but they are absolute favorites! We traveled with a ton of gear to capture stunning footage for this 3-day Indian wedding. Like many couples, the bride and groom experienced all of the challenges that come with a COVID wedding. Guest count was reduced, live-streaming was in full swing, and they even had video recorded toasts played at the Sangeet from those who couldn’t make it to the wedding. Despite many changes, the events during this Michigan wedding were still absolutely breathtaking! The Sangeet was filled with stunning performances by family and loved ones. What makes these performances even more meaningful is the bride’s involvement in creating the choreography for many of these Bollywood and Bhangra Fusions Dance performances. Kicking off the celebration, the dances and speeches were a great commemoration honoring Dimant and Shivani. Don't miss this amazing Sangeet Dance Performances recap from Dimant and Shivani’s Sangeet. The wedding ceremony was beautifully decorated thanks to the efforts of Utsav Planners. With an elevated white walkway surrounded by tall, gold candles, the pink backdrop and hanging florals made for the perfect backdrop for this Hindu Wedding ceremony. Though 2020 was a rough year for the wedding industry, it was the year that we invested into upgrading our HD quality to the next generation 4K. While this upgrade was faced with many challenges, including a stressful and intense post-production process, however, the clarity and crisp quality of the film makes it entirely...

If there were two words to describe this Indian Wedding, it would be emotional and breathtaking. Everything from the location, to the speeches, to the relationships brought a wave of emotions that perfectly captured the atmosphere of this destination Indian wedding in Colorado. Shot at the stunning Arrowhead Golf Course, this wedding venue served as the perfect location for two childhood friends to celebrate their union. The song “Butterfly Kisses at Night”, sung by the father of the bride, served as the inspiration for the film and really set the tone for the atmosphere of the wedding. With the help of the groom on the guitar, the father began singing the song to the bride before speaking the rest after claiming he couldn’t sing. The poetic feel of the song worked as an amazing storytelling aspect for the emotional parts of the wedding video. Aneesh and Maitri first met when they were four years old. Living across the street from each other, their families both spent lots of time together. Even distance couldn’t separate these two lovebirds as Maitri’s family moved to Chicago and Aneesh’s family moved to Oklahoma. After years of friendship, they fell in love and decided on forever together. The couple really wanted a Destination Wedding near the mountains. Traveling out of state, we were curious as to why the bride and groom would choose Denver Colorado for their destination wedding. It wasn’t until we drove to the venue that we understood. Nestled in the foothills of Colorado’s majestic Rocky Mountains, Arrowhead Golf Course made for the perfect background to host their wedding ceremony and reception. It was truly an incredible experience to film this Denver Indian Wedding in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado and we hope you enjoy this destination film celebrating the love of Aneesh and Maitri. After passionately crafting films like this, we hope this Indian wedding film immersed you into the cultural and beautiful wedding story of Aneesh & Maitri’s Destination Indian Wedding in Denver, CO. I’m confident we can capture an amazing memory of your big day for you and your...

Destination weddings are probably one of the most exciting tasks we take on as wedding cinematographers. We get to experience an exotic, new place, usually an island on the other side of the globe, while capturing breathlessly romantic ceremonies and epic receptions. It’s such an exciting getaway for us and the stakes are always higher to deliver our very best work. The couple who requests us to join them on their wedding weekend, expects us to create the perfect, flawless wedding film. A wedding film that captures the most sentimental and priceless moments of their big day. It’s always a thrill to see how we can stretch our creativity to ensure we capture the perfect angles and moments throughout the weekend as the couple exchanges their vows, makes their grand entrance, and dances the night away, all while surrounded by only the closest of family and friends and the bluest ocean and greenest mountains. Barron and Dana first met in 2012 and after Barron proposed, they began planning their magical wedding. They chose Saint Lucia for its warm and tropical weather and it was such a perfect touch on their big day! It was as if the clouds knew exactly how to compliment the setting and add the perfect glow, making our job almost effortless. Planning the wedding reception was like “planning the best party of our life, with everything and everyone we love” and it was evident that the guests were enjoying themselves during the party. Barron and Dana were radiating so much joy and happiness that filming their wedding was not only a blast but it was genuinely very exciting to be there in that moment with them and their loved ones. ...

We don't usually post wedding teasers on our blog, but I particularly liked this wedding teaser from Vincent & Camy's romantic Napa Wedding at V. Sattui Winery (as I think it has an interesting modern twist to it). This was a destination wedding for this beautiful couple and we were honored to be part of their grand day in Napa Valley, California. This was my first time in V. Sattui winery and I loved every aspect of it. V. Sattui is the Napa Valley’s most romantic destination, where the rolling hills, lush vineyards, and of course the award winning wine served as the perfect place for this couples dream destination wedding in Wine Country. The lower courtyard served as a flawless place for the wedding ceremony and the barrel room completed the reception perfectly. Enjoy this modern twist wedding teaser....

I was very lucky to experience a unique weekend in St. Lucia and be part of Barron and Dana's destination wedding at Royalton St. Lucia. Their wedding was amazing and simply beautiful. After filming their wedding, the couple wanted me to film something very fascinating (for me at least) the next day, a music video on a sail boat set to a new song released by John Legend - A Good Night. They wanted a video that simply shows them and their wedding guests having fun on a boat in the middle of the St. Lucia ocean and so it would look like a music video. Filming the music video was a challenge - it really was. I actually almost lost my DJI drone as the winds over the ocean were way to strong for my tiny drone (but that's another story). The little time we had to shoot during sunset and the few times we played the song, really made it hard to capture all the shots. Somehow, we pulled it off.  This is definitely something different than we usually produce, but I'm happy how this challenging music video from their party on the sail boat turned out. Enjoy this Destination Wedding Music Video!...
