Sunstone Villa Wedding Photographer, Kelsea Holder, captures a beautiful Italian Wedding in a Fine Art Style.
This beautiful, romantic wedding at Sunstone Villa wedding remains one of the warmest and most joyous weddings I have been able to witness. Lisa and Joey have such a special light about them and getting to know them and capture their love has been such an honor—-> starting with their Big Sur engagement session! California in the Fall had us basking in warm golden sunlight, and there are so many magical moments captured below. You can also view more images in their gallery —> here.
“When Joey and I first talked about what kind of venue we wanted and what kind of feel we wanted our wedding to have, we immediately agreed upon a few characteristics: we wanted an outdoor venue in central California with a beautiful view that exuded both a sense of class, warmth, and togetherness. We also wanted our California guests to feel like they were being whisked away for a weekend to some far off land but not have to travel more than half a day to get there. When we came upon Sunstone Villa, we both knew immediately that this was the place of our dreams.” This is a Sunstone Villa Wedding Photographer.
“I could hear Lisa and her girls making last minute adjustments to her dress as she prepared to descend the spiral staircase. I remember waiting for what felt like forever at the time.I spent those several minutes reflecting on the first time I had ever seen her, our true “first look”. She was wearing a black zip up sweatshirt she borrowed from a friend, basically the opposite of a white wedding dress. I remembered staring at her throughout the night as she laughed and talked to other friends. In those moments before our First Look I couldn’t remember what it ever felt like to not know her beautiful face. Then, at the peak of my anticipation, she rounded the corner and flashed a huge smile. Primed by the preceding emotional reflection period, I burst out into an epic ugly cry as soon as I saw her! We both laugh-cried together as she did a spin to show me the details of her beautiful dress. Her beauty, charm and elegance were all perfectly framed in her wedding dress, hair, and makeup. ”
After the bride and groom spent some moments together talking we could hear clapping booming down the hallway. With each clap getting louder, we then heard the chanting of their names. They ran down the hall and were greeted by the entire wedding party who were bursting with energy. Overall it was a beautiful display of love for one another followed by the love and support of all their dearest friends. The immense energy and pure joy filled the room to the brim!
