As a filmmaker myself, I wanted to create a teaser for our wedding website, something that our guests could get excited about. This reel is to set the stage for our upcoming wedding in March, 2012. Many of our guests have never attended a wedding at the Union Station in Los Angeles, so we felt this would be a great teaser.
I asked Shuchi Parikh to sing the background song, called "Mangalashtak". It's a traditional Hindi marriage song that is played when the bride reaches the mandap (altar) to join the groom in marriage. I felt this song ties our Hindu ceremony into the teaser reel.
