As much as I love all of the pretty little details that go into a wedding (love them), few things inspire me more than wedding photos and movies where you can really see how much the couple loves one another – where you can get a sense of the joy in the day. That’s why Neda and Sati’s incredible wedding film is what’s inspiring me today. It is utterly joyful.

Now what if I tell you this is the first wedding film by Rob, Jesse and Nick, the team at Cherish Films and Sandbox Love. No really – this is their first wedding film. Rob’s story is inspiring in its own right – he left a successful job in the advertising industry to follow his heart, to tell beautiful love stories. What could be better than that?

Congratulations, Neda and Sati! Thank you for sharing your beautiful wedding with us, and thank you so much to Sandbox Love and Cherish Films for sending over this incredible film – I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store.

    OMG! I live in San Diego and I remember seeing this on the news and I thought the exact same thing the news lady said at the end, when I saw it on the news. I was like "OOOH! AN ELEPHANT IN DOWNTOWN!" and then I was like "OOOH! THE COUPLE IS GORGEOUS!" I cannot believe that this was Cherish Films first wedding…that video would have NEVER made you think that. What a great job!

    Y'know, usually when wedding bloggers put up a video and they say stuff like 'This will bring a tear to your eye' or 'This is so moving', I often find myself disagreeing. That is SO not the case with this one! This is an amazingly well done wedding video. The love and the story is allowed to shine through, and yet it's never dull. And that couple is HOT.

    OMG, I just got engaged and completely love the idea of a film. Thanks for also mentioning the name of the company that produced it. Sorry, I am in full "I'm getting married" mode! I wish I am that happy and have that much fun on my big day!

    oh my gosh…this was perfect timing. I am traveling to India next week for a month and have been doing a lot of research on Indian tradition and wedding ceremonies. I sobbed through this whole thing. I know how amazing and passionate the Indian people are but this was a true testiment. Thank you for sharing!

    @David,They were not intrusive at all. It's like you didn't even know they were there. Seeing the end result was so much fun because we got to relive so many moments when you didn't even think they were filming. One word comes to mind when you work with Cherish Films…WOW. You won't go wrong with these guys.Sati (groom)

    First, I have to thank everyone for the very nice comments! :)I’ve also got to back up what my new hubby said regarding the intrusiveness… or lack of. Rob and his team were literally shooting our wedding for 8-9 days straight, and never did we feel that they or their cameras were disturbing in any way. To quote a lot of our guests, “We didn’t even notice they were there anymore.” But as you can see, Rob and his team never failed to capture every single moment throughout the week. Cherish Films will not let you down… you have my word. Neda (bride)

    My friends and I have gotten wedding fever lately (even though none of us are engaged or plan to be any time soon, haha), and this just sent me over the edge! I forwarded it straight to them and I hope they love it as much as I did. It's beautiful!

    OMG… this video alone makes me wish I had a bigger budget. Why can't I be the bride with rich parents who will pay for anything? I didn't even care about video before because they all are so cheesy, but this is just amazing.

    I love that while this wedding clearly cost a pretty penny, the couple and the wedding seem invested in all of the right things; love, family, tradition, and the joining together of two people who seem very down to earth and so well loved by all the people who got to be a part of the wedding events. Rob did a great job featuring all of the wonderfully decadent details, but the star of the film was always the couple's love for each other and I think that's beautiful. Too many times the "event" becomes bigger than the marriage and you remember the details instead of the couple. This is soooo not that way. Bravo to Cherish films for making a video that total strangers on the Internet can watch and feel like they have a glimpse of who these people are and makes us want to know them. I can't imagine how special this is for the people who actually do! :)
