Venue Spotlight: Perfect for a Destination Wedding at Home

Have you always dreamed of having a destination wedding in Italy with all your friends and loved ones?  Are the logistics of getting them to a wedding half way around the world leaving you feeling a little discouraged?  Well don’t be!  What if you can have that dream destination wedding feeling right at home in sunny Southern California?  

Today’s venue spotlight is one of my favorites:  Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez.  With its sweeping views of the Santa Ynez Mountains, old world architecture reminiscent of an Italian Tuscan town… you and your guests are bound to be transported half a world away as you celebrate the night away.

Sunstone Winery also has a Villa that can be rented out to accommodate up to 10 guests.  The villa is a perfect place for an intimate weekend celebration or grand event.  In addition to accommodations, the use of the Villa includes a pre-wedding Rehearsal dinner, wedding day festivities, and a post wedding day brunch.  I can’t imagine a more perfect place for a destination wedding at home that will make all your Italian wedding dreams come true!
