Who needs to go to Europe when you have this sort of elegance right in California at the exquisite SUNSTONE VILLA in the rolling hills of Santa Ynez. Captured by San Francisco wedding photographer JESSI CLARE this Italian inspired shoot was designed by WEDDINGS BY SUSAN DUNNE and features a stunning KAREN WILLIS HOLMES gown with detached sleeves. 

Southern California hair & make-up artist PAGE BEAUTY gave the bride and relaxed, natural look in keeping with the outdoor environment. Her hair pulled back loosely with tendrils falling about the face kept it romantic and informal. Wedding stationery designer BEAUTIFULLY NOTED designed an elegant invitation suite which was finished off with a gold wax seal. Florals by MULBERRY & MOSS were in dusky tones with lush garden roses combined with olive branches. And of course the essential get away car - the SANTA BARBARA SPEEDSTER - adding yet more European flair to the day.
