There is always a moment during our first meeting with couple that ignites the fire that will burn for a longtime. In case, there isn’t (and there are some times when that happens), nothing happens and both of us go our separate ways.
In the case of Anurag (Ronnie) and Arshdeep, the moment was when Ronnie showed his excitement for wedding more than Arsh (Arsh and I have often called him Groomzilla:) ) as well as his passion about filmmaking. And it wasn’t Ronnie but it was also Arsh’s genuine understanding of his excitement. That did it right there for us.
They decided to fly us out for their engagement event to Vancouver, BC and then of course we were commissioned to cover all their events here in Toronto.
We always get close to our couples every year. With Ronnie and Arsh, it was no different. We spent good few days with them driving around and filming their concept film The Poem plus many skype meetings and uncountable text messages.
It probably will sound cliche but truly Arsh and Ronnie are the perfect walls for each other. They are there for each other when the one or the other needs support.
Our heartfelt congrats to both of them.

Arsh + Ronnie approached us last year for their wedding coming up in May of 2012 in Toronto. However, since Ronnie is originally from Vancouver, the engagement party was held there back in October.
Aside from using our services for their wedding day, they also wanted to create a concept short showcasing their home cities (Vancouver & Toronto) as well as their affection for each other. That whole idea gave birth to “The Poem/Kavita”.
Every couple’s story is unique and we feel it should be told in a unique way. To date, we have done bollywood music videos, short film with mafia theme, vintage silent short film and bollywood medley etc.
With Ronnie and Arsh, we wanted to try something out of the box as well. As always we went below the surface of their story and relationship. Once brainstorming became intense, we came up with a concept that will be filmed in Toronto and Vancouver. So what if it’s in Vancouver and Toronto? Sure it’s different but it needs to be unique.
That’s when we realized that there is no other way of telling their story than in the form of a Poem. And we did. We wrote a poem exclusively for them and their story. To take it one step further, we decided to hire a talented band “Swaras” to narrate and produce it. And boy did they do a fantastic job.
And to top it all, when we showed it at the reception, there was pin drop silence.
