Marina and Pierre’s wedding editorial at Sunstone Winery in Santa Barbara California.

As experienced film wedding photographers, this is one of the most unforgettable celebrations we got to be a part of. Not only because of the Sunstone Winery wedding venue, which is a ravishing Tuscan-motivated estate; but also because our gorgeous couple elevated the whole atmosphere. We couldn’t imagine a more wonderful marriage than this, at such a striking location. 

The venue is an elegant majestic Villa present in mesmerizing Santa Ynez Mountains near Santa Barbara in the sunny state of California. What really made it all authentic was the setting that gave us the feel of a perfect Europe inspired wedding. With its Provencal nurseries, clearing grape plantations, and an old-world propelled limestone estate, the villa, and its surroundings were a true beauty to behold. Moreover, as this place hosts only about five weddings a year, the hosts are very dedicated and passionate about their work, so they created a truly memorable event.

This joy was doubled when Janna Brown and Ema Giangreco entered the scene and made the venue look even more incredible. The entire idea of this fantastic setup inspired by the Sunstone manor and its stunning environmental factors was simply refreshing. For instance, walking through the huge wooden entryways at this Sunstone winery wedding venue can make anyone become a fan of its allure, and the same happened to us too. After getting out of the backdoor, a reception table was created while keeping the villa’s aesthetics in mind. This caught everyone’s sight, and to be honest, we couldn’t take a single step forward without capturing some wonderful Sunstone Villa wedding photos.

Coming to the most important people of the event – our couple, who were so lively and cheerful all the time, that they made everything look more charming. The beautiful bride wore an elegant jacquard strapless wedding gown, Monique Lhuillier – Teodora 2020, looking absolutely phenomenal. The back of her dress was equally magnificent in design, as it had a gorgeous cut out with a detachable bolero. And well, what else can we expect from the amazing Alexias Bridal Boutique other than having the most exemplary dresses that leave everyone in awe? It was undoubtedly a perfect bridal outfit that made us take some great Sunstone winery wedding photos. To be honest, this all is exactly what any fine-art wedding photographers would ask for – a loving wedding couple in a perfect romantic setting.

We are so grateful that we got the chance to use our photographic art by capturing such a glamorous celebration at the Sunstone winery wedding venue in California. The whole group was so dedicated that teaming up with them was an inspiring and incredibly creative experience. The arrangements and breathtaking decorations by Janna Brown and Ema Giangreco were so beautifully curated that it was easy to lose oneself just gazing at their artistry. Janna Brown’s floral setting and the creative planning of Ema Giangreco made it all look so wonderful.
