Beautiful Spring Sunstone Villa Wedding Full Of Peonies And A Puppy

Annette and Julian’s beautiful Spring Sunstone Villa wedding full of peonies and a puppy began on a beautiful day in Santa Ynez. Classic and elegant romance is inspired by every element of the day, flawlessly styled by La Fete Weddings. A refreshing color palette of blush and white kept things utterly stunning and easy on the eyes.

They also opted to include their precious puppy and we can't get over how adorable he is, he even joined in on the father daughter dance! You won't want to miss a single detail from this wedding, and there's so much to see in the full gallery, photographed by Elizabeth Messina.

A Bridal Look WITH MONIQUE LHUILLIER

From La Fete Weddings: As the bride was finishing her final touches with TEAM Hair & Make Up and the girls finished stepping into their gowns the bride was given her beautiful bouquet. Annette carried a lush hand-tied bouquet comprised of her favorite flower - fresh peony blooms in shades of blush and white. The bouquet was designed in a classic, romantic and elegant style and coordinated perfectly with her Monique Lhuillier gown.

If you can't get enough of this brides gorgeous gown, we recommend you take a peek at the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2016 Bridal Collection.

A Delicious Sounding Cocktail Hour

The guests were shuttled into the estate and greeted with trays of infused water and trays of champagne, before taking their seats under the large oak trees for the ceremony. A large wooden structure draped in romantic cream chiffon fabric, fresh flowers and olive branches framed Annette and Julian as they exchanged their emotion-filled vows in front of 200 of their closest friends and family members.   The party began at cocktail hour in the front of the Sunstone Villa, where guests gathered to enjoy a few Armenian inspired passed hors d’oeuvres such as crisp shishbarak with yogurt dipping sauce and Mediterranean spiced chicken satay skewers.

A Romantic Reception At A Beautiful Venue

Then, the guests were invited through the Villa entryway to the backyard where long and round wooden feasting tables awaited. The tables were draped in ivory embroidered linen runners and topped with luxurious floral arrangements in shades of cream, soft blush pink and wispy vines of clematis, fresh mint and olive foliage.  Annette wanted the evening to be full of candlelight and romance and each table featured clusters of pillar and votive candles adding a soft glow around the garden. As the guests found their seats, Duo served Sunstone’s local wines and passed around cheese and charcuterie platters. Annette and Julian were welcomed into the reception and opened the dance floor with their first dance together, then invited all of their guests to join them for a high-energy dance set!

After Party At Sunstone Winery Caves

As the sun began to set and the overhead string lighting began to illuminate the evening,  the guests dined and danced the night away until 10pm. But the evening was far from over!  We invited the guest to re-board the shuttles down to the Sunstone Winery Caves for the After Party where Duo served late night snacks including: flatbread pizzas, sliders, doughnuts, and mini chicken chow mein in tiny take-out boxes. Guests departed saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and we can clearly see why!
