Dilshad ♥ Tim ... The Double SDE

Sometimes the stars align. I had a feeling that this was going to be one of those times. Dilshad and Tim booked two full days of filming for their two weddings. Yes two weddings. So, two wedding videos. I decided that two same-day-edits were in order, hence this 7 minute double SDE.

Both weddings were "full on," with every detail from Dilshad's sari to Tim's cuff links 100% personalized and loaded with meaning. Of course it didn't hurt that Tanya Peters/Milestone Events and Ellen Ho/Hong Photography were there!

Or that Tim and Dilshad were so into the video-making process and even rearranged their itinerary to show the video a bit later on in the evening. Showing this film at the reception was just unbelievable and was followed by a standing-O. Like I said, the stars were aligned.

Oh, and my collection of epic/cinematic middle eastern-flavoured music has been plundered so I welcome suggestions for more great tunes. The piece in the Indian SDE is Peter Gabriel's The Feeling Begins.

Have a look at Part I of Ellen's photos from this wedding, so so so beautiful.


  1. What an amazing video. I couldn't believe that you were able to show us such a polished and professional video of both weddings, while the second wedding reception was still in progress! Simply amazing.

  2. Erik, you did a fabulous job of capturing the essence of true ℓﻉ√٥ in its purest form. Thank you for making this special, beautiful & tender-hearted video(s) *tears*.

    Dilshad & Tim, absolutely breathtaking ceremonies. Your unique style is unmatched to any other wedding videos I've seen. The time you both took to piece together every significant detail shows your devotion to one another.

    May your lives be a great adventure. May your battles be fought together side by side & let there be joy & abundance.

    Blessings abound,
    Natasha (Tim's bootcamp survivor)

  4. Even though there are not enough shots of ME, this is a fantastic viseo. You should enter it in the short documentary section for the Oscars!
