There are many ways to tell a story, and so much a Hindu wedding symbolizes. It was our hope to explore these themes in a far more dramatic way than we felt possible in a traditional documentary, and tell an engaging true love story filled with far more than meets the eye.
Melissa & Samir's incredible journey to Udaipur fulfilled a lifelong dream of being married in India. This transcendent place, affectionately called the "City of Lakes," would be the setting for their extravagant three-day wedding celebration and the backdrop of an unprecedented Pacific Pictures wedding film production. "City of Lakes" is the first ever live event scripted concept film created on this scale. It combines Melissa & Samir's real live wedding with a scripted production, which aims to tell their true life love story in the most engaging way possible. Enjoy the trailer for "City of Lakes" and be sure to watch the full-length wedding concept video.
