I don’t know if there’s a couple who better exemplifies the spirit of Sandbox Love than Ruthie and Ian. These two are not only extraordinarily charming people, but the way they interact with each other is the most playful and fun-loving we’ve seen. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.
Ruthie and Ian’s wedding weekend was held in Napa Valley. The rehearsal dinner was at the always gorgeous Tra Vigne and their wedding ceremony and celebration were held at Z Modern. What a place! And you couldn’t have asked for better weather!
This film was a special one for Sandbox Love. Because of Ruthie and Ian’s loving attitude, and their fun style, I felt like we were able to make a film that really focused on the joy of their wedding. The music, editing style, and soundbites were all picked to join the feeling of nostalgia with a little bit of quirkiness. I’d say that this style of wedding film isn’t something you see everyday, and neither are Ruthie and Ian. The two of them are truly unlike any other, and I believe this film honors that.
Finally, it was once again a huge pleasure and joy to work with Laurie Arons and her super-star crew. We also got to shoot alongside Jose Villa for the third time this year. What a treat to hang out with such an expert group of vendors! Oh, and one last thing. To whoever made that lemonade/tea before the ceremony: that was the most refreshing drink I’ve ever had. Srsly.
