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.

When we first met with Natalie & her mother Jill to begin planning the wedding day, she made it clear that she LOVES colorful flowers and wanted a wedding day that was fun, elegant, and memorable. Natalie and Todd had selected the pristine surroundings of Maravilla Gardens, which made the perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony & reception.

The bride chose an elegant ball gown with full tulle skirt and paired with a classic cathedral length veil. Michael of Louloudi Design created a lavish and lush coral and orange arbor for ceremony which later became the focal point for the reception. Elegant church pews featured petite floral accents, and overhead, swagged fabric provided shade for guests.

Laura Hooper Calligraphy made unique and colorful escort card display by adding her famous hand calligraphy to spanish tiles with each of the guests names. Dinner was enjoyed at long and round tables under pepper trees featuring twinkling chandeliers from Ambient Event Design. Bright centerpieces of orange, and sherbert roses featured accents of dusty miler and green hydrangea. Vintage place settings and pressed glasses from Casa de Perrin added a delicate, feminine touch.
