Provence-Inspired Wedding Shoot at a Santa Ynez Winery
With smaller guest counts, couples have the chance to have fun with their paper goods! Invitation suites by Beautifully Noted captured the Provence-inspired charm of the surroundings with organic handmade paper, luxurious silk ribbon, and gold wax seals. The elegant combination of olive and sage green, cream, and antique gold perfectly captured the sunbaked olive grove and lavender field essence of the French countryside inspiration.
With the European villa as a backdrop for wedding portraits, it made perfect sense to choose a French-inspired wedding dress! The Audrey gown by Karen Willis Holmes from En Blanc was Parisian chic with a dotted Swiss bodice, off the shoulder Edwardian sleeves, and a full skirt for the perfect romantic silhouette!
The dusky golden stone and Provençal French courtyards of the winery created a romantic setting for these luminous fine art wedding photos! In keeping with the light and airy backdrop, the groom chose a crisp tan suit from Friar Tux and added the perfect detailed touch with a floral patterned tie!
Mulberry and Moss looked to the organic elegance of the Southern California winery wedding venue to design the intimate wedding ceremony. A diagonal flower garland of greenery, olive branches, and neutral roses turned the outdoor staircase into a dynamic ceremony backdrop.
Provence-inspired wooden chairs and earthen posts overflowing with flower arrangements and foraged greenery added to the bountiful feeling of this beautiful outdoor vow exchange.
Cheers! The Get Cozy Vintage Mobile Bar offered a fun and retro way to serve guests local wines as well as a specialty cocktail or two. The gin, lemon juice, and sage honey syrup cocktail was paired with a locally brewed batch mead cider to offer refreshing beverages under the Southern California sun.
The exquisite facade of Sunstone Winery can appear grand and luxurious, while also offering a cozy nook for the reception to nestle into. This intimate celebration feels embraced by the towering portico, with wooden beams forming a chapel ceiling high overhead.
The single long table was set with white wood and linen chairs for a French countryside feeling, along with airy white tablecloths and ornate cement chargers. Centerpieces included cream and taupe roses, fresh local fruit, and abundant greenery in copper and terra cotta pots to add to the elegant and organic feeling of the outdoor tablescape.
How exquisite is this nook for a cake display! The wooden doorway, tucked underneath an arbor of wild roses, became the perfect place to showcase Cocoaberry Cake Co‘s floral dessert.
The two-tiered cake featured a hand-painted floral pattern evoking vintage wallpaper, with a silk ribbon tied around the textured white frosting. Fresh summer berries revealed themselves as bright splashes between layers when the beautiful dessert was cut!
Time for a magical getaway! The newlyweds were whisked off to a relaxing staycation in this beautiful Porsche convertible from Santa Barbara Speedster!
