Deepu + Pavan – Wedding Film Highlights from Tulsa, Oklahoma

In Tulsa, Oklahoma we got a chance to film a beautiful traditional Telugu Hindu marriage ceremony. The Hindu wedding ceremony is based on traditions and rituals originating in the Rig Veda, the earliest of the four ancient Sanskrit books of knowledge, collectively known as the Vedas, which form the basis of Hinduism. This sacred Vedic wedding ceremony is meant to unite two people so firmly that after marriage they become one in spirit even though they retain two separate bodies. The ceremony takes place in a Mandap (altar) and the flowers signify beauty and joy; the grains represent the food necessary to sustain life. The fire, representing Agni (the God of Fire), which is a divine witness to the union and brings warmth throughout the couple’s life.
