Allison and Joe had a gorgeous destination wedding at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez. It was such a relaxed, lovely time filled with close friends and family. The food by Trattoria Grappolo was outstanding. (It had to be since they are big time foodies.) Every detail was thoughtful and beautiful.

Between planning and all the shoots, we've spent a lot of time with this couple. At the end of the reception Joe says to us, "We feel like we've not only gained a photographer out of this deal but also new friends. " Our sentiments exactly. Thank you so much Joe and Allison for being so amazing!
We found this perfect spot and decided to do their first look under an Oak Tree.
The Villa at Sunstone Winery feels like Italy.
It was a little windy. And by a little windy, I mean a lot windy.
The reception was in a little romantic cave.
This is probably thee best wedding cake I've ever had. It's from Solvang Bakery.
Eat, drink and be married!
Allison is a foodie. She even has her own blog called Sweet Potato Bites, so her wedding food was really important to her. This Chef from Trattoria Grappolo was so fun and his food was amazingly good!
The night ended with dancing and a yummy gelato bar!
