Dreamy Sunstone Villa Wedding on Style Me Pretty

Sweet Words from Style Me Pretty: “When my husband and I renew our vows one day, we’ll be calling La Fete Weddings, because this right here is all my wedding dreams come to life. I honestly thought I was looking at a dreamy, Italian destination wedding the first time I scrolled through the beautiful gallery of images by Brumley and Wells and was completely blown away when I realized this gorgeous event took place much closer to home – Sunstone Vineyards and Winery in California! This European-esque celebration came together through the work of some of the industry’s finest vendors – Archive RentalsTEAM Hair and Makeup, and Ambient Event Design just to name a few – and is one of those weddings you won’t be able to stop thinking about for days.”

From Style Me Pretty: “Charmed with old world elegance, masterfully considered design, and the classic romance of stone, hand-hewn beams from Queen Elizabeth’s rose garden, and brooding tones of natural light pouring in to every room, Sunstone Winery provides the perfect setting for a timeless wedding. Brett and Sarah’s day was no exception. The ceremony took place under the live oak, surrounded by the property’s vineyard, and followed by the reception in the back grounds of the estate.”

Article on Style Me Pretty:

From the Photographer… Nicole & Walker’s chic LA Destination Wedding was full of Southern Romance in the heart of Beverly Hills. The Bride, originally from LA along with the Groom, from Charleston, South Carolina, wanted an LA wedding on a warm balmy day, with family and friends from both the East and West coast in attendance to witness their beautiful day at a Private Venue. The breath taking Ceremony was nestled in between aged Pine trees with an alter created to embrace the nature it was surrounded by, including beautiful mahogany pews for guests to enjoy the intimate vow exchange. Plants were lined against pews to further embrace the natural ambience and it created the most stunning outdoor aesthetic, truly magical to capture. Once the Ceremony concluded, guests were shuttled back to the large wrap around Veranda as dusk fell and the soft glow of lights began to shimmer in the fading light. Cocktails clinked, and appetizers were passed as soft jazz hummed in the background setting the tone for the reception that followed just down the path, under a clear tent with rustic wood tables, hemstitch runners, low centerpiece arrangements and illuminated twinkle lights, all waiting for Guests to enjoy and dine. The palette was very beach inspired, incorporating light gray blue, ivory, neutrals with greenery and pops of peach. After dining, dancing & merriment, guests lined the courtyard and sent off the Newlyweds to the Vintage car awaiting them, with a grand Sparkler exit and a Champagne toast.

Our Design at the Luxe Linen Launch Event at Vibiana

Last year we were completely blown away by the beauty that took place at the Luxe Linen Launch event at Vibiana located in downtown Los Angeles. So its safe to say that when we were asked to design a space featuring one of Luxe Linen’s new tablecloths- we were thrilled and honored to be a part of such a fabulous event!

We began designing our display with Camellia Floral Design and we were thrilled to be using a color palette that we don’t often get to work with. Inspired by an alfresco dinner set in a romantic backyard of a Montecito estate- Revelry Event Designers assembled this stunning large wooden arbor where we suspended large chandeliers with soft wood beads & romantic peach colored chiffon drapery. Then Camille added her whimsical flowers in a way that looked as if they were growing throughout the space. Party Pleasers provided layers of seagrass rugs and their unique terra cotta and copper place settings to add the perfect finishing touches.

We’d like to extend an extra special thank you to the fabulous team of professionals who made this vision come to life! This includes: Camellia Floral Design, Revelry Event Design, Luxe Linens, Party Pleasers, Calligraphy Katrina, High Voltage Lighting, Vibiana, Rayce PR, Natura Macrame, and Brian Leahy for the absolutely gorgeous images of our design. We were beyond thrilled to be included in this fabulous event and were incredibly overwhelmed by the large attendance & sweet compliments about our design. Luxe Linen – Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this magical evening.

Here is the beautiful video of the full event put together by Lin & Jirsa:
