We saw their work and we were blown away. We knew that they would be perfect for our day. They were very professional with the planning process and made sure all our questions were answered. We love that they recorded every detail and captured the candid moments that were special to us. Our DJ made sure to mix it up between Punjabi and English music as we had asked!” – A&D

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “The biggest challenge was planning the wedding within 10 months. The wedding invitations took time to make so we were a little nervous about getting those done and getting them out to our guests on time. We had support from family and friends who were always there to help.” – A

ADVICE, ONE COUPLE TO ANOTHER: “Make a list of everything that needs to be done, then take it one step at a time. Plan ahead that way if you think of anything else you need to do that you need to do, you’ll have plenty of time to figure it out!” – A&D
