Santa Ynez Wedding | Sunstone Winery

Among the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley and down a light gray gravel driveway lined with olive trees, a villa stands alone in a sea of vineyards. As if transported from across the world, the authentic french beauty of Sunstone was the perfect destination for this intimate Santa Ynez wedding. Heather, the host of Styled Shoots Across America and the owner of Heather Benge Events, dedication to the planning, design, and execution of Catalina & Johnathan’s intimate wedding inspired by the Provencal French countryside brought every bit of beauty from Europe to the states.

Their few guests were welcomed to an intimate ceremony in a downstairs room where Chandler Flower House had designed floor-to-ceiling floral creations combined with long-stemmed candles and a backdrop of one of the villa’s signature fireplaces. During the ceremony, the couple read their vows to each other from books designed just for them and calligraphed by the talents of Korynne & Company.

After tying the knot, guests walked through two large wooden french doors into the courtyard and were treated to an evening dining under the stars. A lone table reserved for the bride, groom, and their few guests was set with a simple design of beautiful coral, white, and blue flowers, scattered pears, long-stemmed candles, and golden flatware. After dinner, guests enjoyed slices of a three-tiered coral cake by Autumn Cake Design while taking in views of the vineyards and rolling green grassy hills surrounding the Sunstone Villa. 


Time to be present in the moment, to enjoy each other’s company, and to walk into the sunset as husband and wife.


Inspired by French fashion and to complement her destination venue, Catalina wore a beautiful chic gown from Styled Gowns. The long train of her white tulle gown fluttered across the ground with every step she took. Her elegance was magnified with soft touches of makeup and an updo by Sun Kissed and Made Up and heels from Gianni Bini. Johnathan’s dapper suit and leather shoes from The Modern Groom completed his modern and masculine look and matched his bride perfectly.

Before the night ended, the bride and groom escaped for some romantic portraits on the back lawn overlooking the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley. It was the perfect time for them to reflect on their day and the promises they had made one another. Time to be present in the moment, to enjoy each other’s company, and to walk into the sunset as husband and wife. Captured by Jocelyn & Spencer, Catalina & Johnathan celebrated the beginning of their marriage surrounded by loved ones with their intimate wedding inspired by the provincial French countryside.
