Elegant Outdoor Wedding at Anderson Canyon Estate

If ever wedding I ever go to for the rest of my life could look exactly like this one from Our Labor of Love, I’d be happy forever. Casa De Perrin could keep me always finding something new, and the sweet summertime air under the twinkle lights at dinner time would bring a tear to my eye every single time.

From Mein Schatz Events… Lucas + Koty decided to skip the 200 person fete and opted for a weekend full of good food, good music and good friends instead. A two day event, starting with their rehearsal dinner/concert at the Henry Miller Library. Set amongst the redwoods, friends gathered for a supper club, meets summer camp style party, catered by restauranteurs, Hart and the Hunter. Good friend and musician, David Ford, played an hour long, private concert for the duo and their friends. Followed by dancing the night away to DJ Smiles Davis.

Shifting gears on Saturday, the wedding takes a more elegant turn, with a simple ceremony over looking the pacific ocean, at the elite Anderson Canyon Estate. The Dustbowl Revival played bluegrass tunes while Koty walked down the vintage carpet aisle to meet her groom. Engraved leather escort cards showed guests to their seats at the extra long dinner table, dripping with green garlands and gold flatware.

The couple dined on another meal, catered by the Hart and the Hunter boys, and danced to David Ford for their first dance, under June’s Super Moon. After dinner, the crowd got rowdy, as they moved inside the Anderson House and danced to Smiles Davis’ groovy tunes.

Bride Dons Beautiful Navy Gown in Adamson House Wedding

California has been calling me lately but now, after spending a few hours with this gorgeous soiree from Beaux Arts Photographie, I’ve all but packed my bags and hopped in the car. It’s stunning, thanks to Twine Events, but the thing that takes it to the next level? The daringly beautiful navy gown the bride wore. It’s to die for.

From Twine Events… The cocktail napkin message says it all: Eat, Drink, and Be Married. The couple set out to provide a comforting and beautiful atmosphere. They wanted the ultimate dinner party and to make sure their family and friends were taken care of from beginning to end- drinks to savor, a delicious four course meal, great music (including a mariachi band from their alma mater!), and cake and desserts to complete your foodie heaven.

With kids being a big part of the evening, they didn’t want to leave them out. We put out bean bags for the ceremony and an interactive games and sweets table in the reception. The kids were in awe of the attention geared towards them. They had a blast and areas to call their own.

The bride and her mom have a love for floral, so Kate from Flowerwild was the perfect match. The flowers captured the essence of spring- peonies, heirloom roses, lilac, ranunculus, and wild grasses. After reading The Language of Flowers, the bride included a touch of lily of the valley in her bridal bouquet to signify happiness and sweetness.

With ocean views, a historical malibu setting, and lush garden table settings, the day could not be more picturesque.

Romantic Vintage Wedding

Sure, this wedding is a crazy gorgeous day set against a stunning Sunstone Winery setting, but it’s also sooo much more than that.  It’s charming DIY details lovingly crafted by a beautiful bride, soft pastels + lace filling every inch of space and one moment after another that will literally fill your heart with so much joy, you won’t know what to do with yourselves.  See it all captured by Erin Leigh right here.

From the Bride… Our wedding at beautiful Sunstone Villa and Winery was filled with many DIY projects that I got from many sources, including the SMP blog. My beautiful Save the Date vintage hankies I sent out came from an SMP blog post where a bride shared how she did hers. Everyone raved about how beautiful and unique our Save the Date was…so thank you for the fabulous idea. The entire wedding was filled with vintage details. Vintage chandeliers hung from oak trees for the ceremony, vintage suitcases were filled with vintage postcards for our guestbook, the antique crystal vases that my Mom found at antique stores for the center pieces, vintage sofas rented for the cigar bar, vintage key place cards that I made myself, vintage lace that I wrapped around candles, more vintage hankies used on place settings, vintage style frames used for table numbers that I put together, vintage photos of classic cars taken by the groom strung by the cigar bar, vintage family photos of our parents and grandparents on their wedding day and finally my vintage wedding rings which were found at the local antique store in Solvang (both my engagement ring and wedding band were bought at Solvang Antiques in town on separate trips to Solvang). It seemed meant to be that we have our wedding here. We spent so much time picking out every detail and it is so fun to now look and see it all so beautifully captured in these photos.

We had 67 of our dearest friends and family join us for a gorgeous weekend in Santa Ynez, CA. Our location was Sunstone Villa and Winery, which as you can see from the photos is a photographers dream. I really felt that our photographer, Erin, not only captured the beauty of Sunstone, but the happiness and love that surrounded us completely that weekend. I think that is the beauty of having a smaller, intimate destination wedding like we had – you really have those that are closest and dearest to you there to celebrate your special day and it makes the experience that much more magical. I have so many amazing memories and moments that were captured in these photos. The most touching moments involved my brother, Peter, who has Down’s Syndrome. We danced to “God Only Knows” from the Beach Boys- as that is one of his favorite bands. There wasn’t a dry eye at Sunstone, including mine. Peter is my heart and it was such a special moment for both of us. It was even more touching to look over and see my new husband with tears in his eyes looking on with such love. He also gave an amazing speech, which again got all the tears flowing. It was so beautiful and from the heart.
