Beautiful Multi-cultural Wedding Video at Metropolist in Seattle, WA
Japjit & Carlos’ wedding weekend in Seattle, WA was probably the most memorable wedding experience that I’ve ever had. Their wedding was a mix of two beautifully unique cultures: Black American and Sikh Indian.
As a Black wedding vendor, I was very familiar with the music, foods, and encompassing customs that represented Carlos’ influences. However, being immersed in the Sikh culture was a completely new experience for me. Getting the chance to spend time with Japjit’s family and learn as I documented the weekend felt like an adventure. It almost seemed as though I was transported to a foreign land and was being world schooled on the Sikh culture.
So much from their wedding experience left an impression on me. However, I’d say that the most impactful impression was the appreciation of different cultures that both sides of Japjit & Carlos’ loved ones had for each other. With the tension that we are experiencing in our country, so many people can learn from the guests of this wedding. It was such a beautiful sight watching members of two different cultures celebrating love together.
FROM THE COUPLE
Dude. THANK YOU. I wanted to tell you that from the first time we spoke on the phone to our goodbye at the Metropolist, you have been nothing but absolutely amazing to work with. It was so simple and easy. You allowed us to focus on being with each other, our families, and truly be in the moment to celebrate our love. I will forever be thankful to you for that.
