I’ve been dying to post this for everyone to see! When I first met with Kathryn and Ryan and saw how they communicated, I knew we were going to make an amazing wedding film. Maybe it’s their abundant charisma. Maybe it’s the way they looked at each other and could finish the other’s sentences. Whatever it was, I could tell it was true love. Enjoy.
Kathryn and Ryan’s wedding was one of those weddings where you’re just smiling the whole time. From the beautiful moments on the front porch to the candlelit ceremony to the paper hats at the end of the night. I just remember thinking, “Yes, that’s a moment. There’s another one. And another!” A perfect wedding. And the thing was, the wedding was SO them.
If you don’t know, Kathryn runs the popular wedding blog, Snippet and Ink. As someone who is as involved in the wedding world as she is, you can bet she and Ryan tailored everything about their wedding day to fit their story, style, and love. So we tailored their film to fit them as well. We drew our inspiration from the locations of Cavallo Point and the Presidio. From where they’re from and where they’ve been. From the style of the the vintage taxi they hop into. And from the underlying theme of their love; that no matter where they are… they are at home with each other.
I’m sure you can tell that we went with a homey/folky kind of feel with their film. When Kathryn gave me a CD of music that inspired her, it clicked. First, almost all of her songs were about traveling with a loved one, or because of a loved one. As Ryan says, it’s a journey that they’re on together. It’s that open road of potential for any life they choose to make. And as long as they’re together, it’s everything they’ll ever need.
Oh, and my favorite moment is when Kathryn looks out through the window and sees Ryan smoking the cigars and catches his eye. I mean, are you kidding me? To catch a moment like that in the middle of a wedding reception. You couldn’t stage that. Make sure you catch it
