Styled Social Santa Ynez: Italian Villa Wedding Inspiration
Styled Social Santa Ynez is just about the only thing on our minds these days. A sun-kissed villa amidst grapevines and mountains. A velvety caramel jacket alongside a silk georgette kaftan. Interwoven shades of peach, vanilla, dandelion and goldenrod amidst caneback chairs and handwritten menus… Is there anything more Tuscan paradise on American soil?
Our hearts were captured in an instant as we perused this light + airy gallery from Lauren Fair.
There isn’t a design element we don’t LOVE from the talented genius, Krystel, over at Couture Events, who brought this fine art soiree to life. From the woven dining chairs to the modern bohemian fashion to the colorfully handpainted paper goods, her creative direction belongs among the stars!
Sunstone Winery is a landmark in it’s own right. Its architecture contains pieces of history from reclaimed French limestone to hand-hewn pine beams from Queen Victoria’s lavender factory to a fireplace from the Bordeaux region of France. We’d say it brought the perfect taste of Europe to our sun-drenched American soil.
Asymmetrical floral pillars from The Flora Club brought color and whimsy to the romantic grapevine scene.
Meanwhile, the pearl-bedecked bridal heels from Bella Belle Shoes have us feeling elegant by association.
The silk georgette kaftan gown from Carol Hannah is truly exquisite, with a timeless yet boho chic quality we can’t get enough of!
And Stitch And Tie sure inspires with this caramel velvet suit jacket paired with a floral tie and khaki dress pants.
This textured pink watercolor dream is courtesy of JRD Artshop, and the color doesn’t stop there!
The elevated tabletop pieces from Borrowed BLU might just convince you to snag a few ideas for your own kitchen. From the rose-colored glasses to the sleek eggshell plates, it’d be nearly impossible for us to choose!
Page Beauty was on FIRE with hair + makeup artistry so good, we can only wonder when the Hollywood award shows will bring them on the dream team for canvases like Anne Hathaway and Margot Robbie. Putting it out into the universe! Her relaxed, dewy look is ev-ery-thing.
Aren’t these handpainted paper goods from Proper Letter just magic? Playful calligraphy, watercolor liner, wax seal and all!
The alternative engagement rings from Shel Couture are pretty enough to make anyone green with envy. So it’s a good thing there lighter in color! At least that would complement 😉
How darling is this sweet amour signage from Delovely Details?! It certainly has our hearts forever and always.
And the cherry on top? This highlight film from Aziz Studios!
We’re gearing up for our next Styled Socials where wedding photographers will have the opportunity to shoot a full-scale editorial like this one, produced by us and designed by a team of handpicked local vendors. We’d love to see you there!
