Romantic Sunstone Wedding in Spring

With Spring right around the corner, we can’t help but dream about the magical & romantic Sunstone wedding that took place almost  year ago in Santa Ynez. The memorable day began with a full schedule of hair and make up at the Sunstone Villa lead by TEAM. What could possibly be better than to start the day feeling pampered & then each bridesmaid was given a gorgeous blush toned Tory Burch handbag!  The ceremony took place in front of an abundantly decorated arbor dripping in greenery & soft blush toned florals surrounded by 5 crystal chandeliers suspended over the ceremony from the oak trees.

After the emotional vows the guests wandered through the grapevines to arrive in the front courtyard of the Sunstone Villa for cocktails hour. Town & Country provided four custom built cabanas with plush lounge furniture which created a warm & intimate space for the guests to enjoy the delicious passed hors d’oeuvres and specialty cocktails from Duo Catering. The guests were invited to through  the front door of the Villa to receive their escort card/favors which were miniature glass bottles filled with Sunstone’s signature Olive Oil.

The guests passed through the Sunstone Villa and entered the reception, where soft blue runners ran down the wood pedestal tables which were topped with lush arrangements of lush pastel spring flowers. Each place-setting featured mixed stacks of Casa De Perrin’s signature collection china & cut crystal stemware.  Heidi of Zenadia Designs created custom menus with the guests names calligraphed on the exterior and then folded open to reveal the dinner menu for the evening. Town & Country custom built wood cabanas which were draped in ivory chiffon & then Camille added vines and flowers to look as if they were organically growing on the structures over the dining tables with crystal chandeliers.

Every moment of this romantic sunstone wedding day was filled with love, laughter, toasts, emotion, tons of dancing and spectacular food & wine. This was a wedding that we both walked away feeling so incredibly overjoyed to do be able to do what we love- To plan & create memories that will last a lifetime for our clients & that is what warms our hearts the most.

The interior of the ballroom was filled with romantic draping & uplighting and then tall maple trees added freshness & brought life into the space. We used tall gold bar backs from Revelry Event Design to mark the two main bars in the space. Then we mixed in a combination of round, square and rectangular tables into the ballroom which held varieties of tall and low blush floral centerpieces and tons of candles! Michelle also loved the mixture of chairs that Tent Merchant provided. We used tall upholstered chairs for the head table which really set it apart!

Annette and Julian’s beautiful Spring Sunstone Villa wedding full of peonies and a puppy began on a beautiful day in Santa Ynez. Classic and elegant romance is inspired by every element of the day, flawlessly styled by La Fete Weddings. A refreshing color palette of blush and white kept things utterly stunning and easy on the eyes.

They also opted to include their precious puppy and we can’t get over how adorable he is, he even joined in on the father daughter dance! You won’t want to miss a single detail from this wedding, and there’s so much to see in the full gallery, photographed by Elizabeth Messina.

As the bride was finishing her final touches with TEAM Hair & Make Up and the girls finished stepping into their gowns the bride was given her beautiful bouquet. Annette carried a lush hand-tied bouquet comprised of her favorite flower – fresh peony blooms in shades of blush and white. The bouquet was designed in a classic, romantic and elegant style and coordinated perfectly with her Monique Lhuillier gown.

If you can’t get enough of this brides gorgeous gown, we recommend you take a peek at the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2016 Bridal Collection.

The guests were shuttled into the estate and greeted with trays of infused water and trays of champagne, before taking their seats under the large oak trees for the ceremony. A large wooden structure draped in romantic cream chiffon fabric, fresh flowers and olive branches framed Annette and Julian as they exchanged their emotion-filled vows in front of 200 of their closest friends and family members.   The party began at cocktail hour in the front of the Sunstone Villa, where guests gathered to enjoy a few Armenian inspired passed hors d’oeuvres such as crisp shishbarak with yogurt dipping sauce and Mediterranean spiced chicken satay skewers.

Then, the guests were invited through the Villa entryway to the backyard where long and round wooden feasting tables awaited. The tables were draped in ivory embroidered linen runners and topped with luxurious floral arrangements in shades of cream, soft blush pink and wispy vines of clematis, fresh mint and olive foliage.  Annette wanted the evening to be full of candlelight and romance and each table featured clusters of pillar and votive candles adding a soft glow around the garden. As the guests found their seats, Duo served Sunstone’s local wines and passed around cheese and charcuterie platters. Annette and Julian were welcomed into the reception and opened the dance floor with their first dance together, then invited all of their guests to join them for a high-energy dance set!

As the sun began to set and the overhead string lighting began to illuminate the evening,  the guests dined and danced the night away until 10pm. But the evening was far from over!  We invited the guest to re-board the shuttles down to the Sunstone Winery Caves for the After Party where Duo served late night snacks including: flatbread pizzas, sliders, doughnuts, and mini chicken chow mein in tiny take-out boxes. Guests departed saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and we can clearly see why!
