California Honey Sunstone Winery Wedding Photography

italian villa wedding ceremony with gold and white flowers and olive trees Sunstone Winery Wedding Photography

Set amid the rolling hills of California’s Santa Ynez Valley, Sunstone Winery is a vision of rustic Italian stonework and lush groves of olive trees and grapevines. As if it had been plucked straight from the Chianti countryside, Sunstone Winery loving recreates the magic of a classic Tuscan winery. With warm brick walls, aged wood beams and doors, and arched passageways, Sunstone Winery provides a plethora of unique terraces and gathering spaces for a dream Italian Inspired wedding in beautiful Southern California.

Italian inspired building and olive tree

Despite the overcast skies, the warm tones and contrasting details of this California Honey inspired wedding day made it feel as though the sun was on full display. Planner Heather Benge chose a color palette of sunny yellow, warm neutrals, and contrasting black and slate to give this al fresco celebration a refined air. Florists Parkers and Posies and Blush Botanicals filled the ceremony and reception spaces with cheerful, organically designed arrangements of crisp white, honey, mustard, and gold. By mixing textures, yellow tones, and integrating natural elements like wood chairs and stone, the team created a day that was at once lighthearted and elegant.
