Sunstone Winery is a gorgeous luxury Tuscan-inspired villa, and it can’t be a more perfect destination wedding venue. Located just outside of Santa Barbara among the Santa Ynez Valley, Sunstone Winery, Villa and Vineyards is a property that feels like you are in a European countryside with Provencal gardens, sweeping vineyards, and old-world inspired limestone villa.
The designer and wedding planner, Susan Dunne, came up with a mood that was inspired by the Sunstone villa and its stunning surroundings. The idea was to recreate the feeling of being in Europe and enjoying the joys of simple luxuries. This wedding inspiration shoot had many thoughtful details from a chic retro 1958 Porsche Speedster from Santa Barbara House to a beautiful spatula painted wedding cake by CocoaBerry Cake Co. Modern elements, candles and simple ceramics were incorporated into the reception setup where juicy plums were making their appearance and absolutely stealing the show. This blush colored gown stole so many hearts with it’s polka dotted pattern and ethereal sleeves that make your heart flutter. It does not get dreamier than that!
