Speak of a rustic Italian-inspired wedding and we'd be there in a heartbeat! Captured at SUNSTONE WINERY in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, by Los Angeles wedding photographer PEONY PARK PHOTOGRAPHY this will leave you feeling as if you've just stepped foot in Italy. With its beautiful stone villa and vineyards that stretch miles on end, it’s the perfect getaway for a taste of Europe in California and the perfect spot for an intimate private wedding. Planned by Southern California Wedding Planner SWEETEST LOVE EVENTS, the inspiration behind this shoot was the effortless natural beauty found throughout the venue. From inside the villa to outside in the vineyards, the summer inspired coloUrs found in this shoot aimed to complEment the neutral colours and greenery of the venue. A soft warm palette was used by NOONAN'S DESIGNS for the tones of the flowers, using beautiful locally-sourced garden roses and cafe-au-lait dahlias. A touch of texture was added with sweet pea tendrils and trailing jasmine vines. The bride’s gown was elegantly embroidered with Swarovski crystals and soft, delicate lace that romantically graced the floor. 

As evenings at the Villa comes to a close, the classic car serves as the perfect getaway car for newly wed couples, but we can guarantee you won’t want to leave, as you stare into the distance and savour each second of this beautiful property as the sunsets.
