Jocelyn & Spencer shares a glimpse at this Delicate Luxe Micro-Wedding at Sunstone Winery,
Deep in the hills of the Santa Ynez Valley rests Southern California’s own piece of the Provencal French Countryside. Vineyards run along the long driveway lining it on both sides until a bridge is crossed. It’s at this point that the vineyards cease briefly and the view opens to the expansive Sunstone Villa. It’s at this moment that although 2020 brings uncertainty when it comes to traveling to foreign lands, love is not canceled and brides and grooms can still find the elegance and romanticism of the French countryside here in California.
Weddings by Susan Dunne meticulously planned every detail of this delicate luxe micro-wedding. Her unparalleled sense of style brought the event together wonderfully with a timeless palette of soft pinks, deep greens, and white with hints of cream and gold. Sarah, a talented florist and the owner of Mulberry & Moss was included in Susan’s dream team and added to the villa’s beauty with her floral creations. She tastefully decorated the outside staircase that was the backdrop to the ceremony space. And at the alter numerous candles were aflame for the couple’s ceremony.
After the couple shared their vows from books created by Aqua & Ink, a mobile Prosecco bar by Get Cozy Bars greeted guests as they transitioned from the ceremony space to the cocktail hour. Two signature drinks, one cocktail, one cider, infused the couple’s personalities into yet another facet of their day. Soon after, guests were treated to an intimate dinner in the courtyard of the Sunstone Villa complete with multiple floral centerpieces, tall candles, delicate calligraphy menus, and place cards by Beautifully Noted, and luxe accents. After dinner, a tiered wedding cake beautifully designed by the artistic talents of Ioana from Cocoa Berry Cake Co. was displayed upon a marble pedestal in front of a wooden door made from materials reclaimed from villages in France. With a slice of cake, guests were again treated to spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards and later still, an evening under the stars.
It’s every bride’s dream to be clothed in the finest lace robes the morning of their wedding day, and Girl and a Serious Dream makes simply the best. Both brides were inspired by the chic and elegant French style and the romanticism and history that surround the Sunstone Winery. Page Beauty helped to complete their look with touches of soft and subtle makeup. One bride wore a blush gown in tulle with a delicate floral pattern and a gorgeous open leg slit designed by Pronovias from En Blanc. She was adorned with accessories from Vivi Embellish and nearly floated on Bella Belle Shoes as she walked. Accompanying her, her groom wore a deep green tux complete with a boutonniere wrapped in a soft pink bow. The second bride wore a spotted tulle bustier wedding dress designed by Karen Willis Holmes that was so elegant and so french. Her gown wouldn’t have been complete if not for the matching off-the-shoulder sleeves and the full circle skirt lining to give an additional flair to her modern aesthetic ensemble. Her groom wore a tux reminiscent of Gatsby’s and designed by Friar Tux to complete his modern and masculine look.
As the sun began to set on their wedding day, the bride and groom escaped for some portraits in the vineyards. Upon their return, a vintage Porsche parked along the Olive tree-lined driveway awaited the couple’s arrival; Ready to take them away from their storybook wedding day and into their next adventure as husband and wife. Captured by Jocelyn & Spencer, these couples added to their legacy of love with their Delicate Luxe Micro-Wedding Inspired by the Provencal French Countryside.
