Villa AIX Healdsburg, CA Wedding Videographer // Ryan&Sarah
On the peaceful windy road into Villa AIX in Healdsburg, CA you'll pass wineries painted with rolling hills of vineyards. The scene is something out of a dream. Enter a small gravel driveway and you'll discover this beautiful venue, tucked in behind tower ancient trees above. The center of the property is the main house where Sarah&Ryan started their day. Above the house, is the lawn where they were married, and right below the cocktail hour space and reception where they danced the night away!
Four years ago, Ryan's good friend recommended Ryan to his employer. Ryan got the job and shortly after Sarah started working there as well. They met officially during a cocktail hour at another friend's wedding and deep down they knew this was the start of something special. Their friendship over the years developed into a relationship and in 2016, after a romantic lunch, Ryan walked Sarah out to a beautiful willow tree, dropped to one knee and asked a question that would forever change their lives.
Sarah describes Ryan as the perfect combination of Ironman, Deadpool and Captain America. "I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have you as my real life super hero." We loved her vows admiring and encouraging Ryan in his strengths. Ryan's vows were equally loving towards Sarah. You can tell he really cherishes Sarah with everything he has. He praised her for her huge heart, how she's selflessly always willing to help others.
When we first meet these two, they were so warm and welcoming. You can instantly feel the chemistry between them. What makes this love story exceptionally special, is it does not just represent the joining of two individuals. Ryan's son Kahle played a special part in the ceremony as well. This moment was truly so precious to witness, everyone was in tears as Kahle held tightly onto Sarah's hands and she made vows directly to him as well, joining them all as a new family.
We loved Sarah's bridesmaid's speech about "Joie de vivre", a French saying meaning the exuberant enjoyment of life. We think this will be a motto for this family into the future. They know how to love well, how to live well and how to enjoy it all along the way.
