Haley + Severin | Sunstone Vineyards & Winery Wedding

Wedding

May 4, 2017

Ahhh This wedding … this venue … this couple … I could gush all day! But instead, let me tell you a little about this amazing couple and their dream wedding at Sunstone Vineyards.
Haley + Sev live in New York and decided to have their wedding in Central Coast California! I love central coast weddings! They are so beautiful! The lighting and the vibe is so very different, but in all the most amazing ways!
I was super excited from the first moment I connected with Haley! Especially when she told me she was having her wedding at Sunstone. My heart started to beat even faster, it maybe even skipped a beat! Sunstone is one of the most amazing venues with it’s beautiful vineyards and gorgeous villa that reminded me so much of my recent trip to Italy. So you know I was already hooked. After a Skype call with the lovely couple and our dogs, I fell in love even more, as did they!
Haley and Sev are New Yorkers and that is where they met and fell in love. But that’s not where their families are and family is very important to them. They wanted to include as much of their family and family heritage as possible.
“We wanted our wedding to speak to our families and where we came from. [Sev] is from France/Belgium and I am from the Bay Area. When we first walked the grounds at Sunstone Villa & Winery, we knew we had found our happy place – a perfect blend of CA wine-country with European charm (complete with a Villa built from authentic French materials!)” – Haley
Throughout the whole wedding planning process, there are some things you just know. From the moment you fall in love to the proposal, all the way to selecting the wedding dress and the venue, there’s a tug at your heart, or maybe you feel it deep in your gut, whatever it is … you hear it, feel it, say “This is it.” You can’t put it into words, but you know.
“Our vision was for a day of ‘California Cool’ meets with ‘European Elegance’ –  something warm, inviting & sophisticated, without fuss and formality. Because we had so many family and friends traveling from around the world, we wanted our day to be memorable not only to us, but to these important people who had gone above and beyond to share in our day.” – Sev
I am all about the sophistication without the fuss and formality. It is a party to celebrate your love for one another. And that is just what we want you to experience, the beautiful wedding you have envisioned celebrating with your closest family and friends.
I think some of my favorite weddings are ones that are more than just a day! They’re a weekend or even week of celebrations. Why stop at one day? Especially when everything goes by so quickly. Take the time to enjoy all the people you love and adore and make sure to you enjoy and soak in every amazing moment. One day you’ll look back and remember all those special moments and they’ll bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your lips. You’ll remember what you were feeling right before you walked down the aisle. What your maid of honor said that made everyone laugh. How handsome your love looked on this day or how you can see in his eyes how beautiful he thought you looked as he saw you for the first time.
And since I am a sucker for happy endings, here is Haley and Sev’s, straight from them:
“It was an unforgettable day and night. Not only made beautiful by the details in the venue, food and florals, but also by our amazing friends and family who traveled from far and wide to celebrate our marriage. We haven’t stopped smiling.”
That’s what dreams are made of!

I love the champagne neutral colors of Haley’s bridesmaids dresses. A perfect example of that sophisticated, no fuss vibe the couple was striving for! Well, I think she nailed it. Especially with the classic white florals. Beautiful, classic, elegant! That’s what I am talking about!

OMG! Didn’t I tell you the lighting was amazing here? There was a wild fire nearby that weekend and all the haze made for some beautiful skies! Luckily, no one was injured because it sure did make some stunning images. Now don’t go starting fires! Trust me, the coastal sunsets are still beautiful!

For Haley and Sev, it was all about spending time with their guests, and that they did. I love when couples work that into the timeline! A little pre cocktail, post cocktail and a grand party!
