Some partners have a definite vision of the wedding before touring a venue that is single. However for Charlotte Cortina and Matt Rek—who recently relocated to Westlake Village, Ca, after meeting and located in brand brand New York—everything crystallized just after visiting Sunstone Villa, set on a vineyard in Santa Ynez, about 35 kilometers northwest of Santa Barbara.
This home that is privately-owned out of reclaimed 19 th -century limestone through the south of France had been demonstrably the one—and it inspired an impeccably created event which was a seamless mixture of austere and formal. “I kept finding its way back towards the notion of an elegant, black-tie wedding with a normal, natural feel,” says Charlotte, a designer and brand name supervisor for a restaurant business. “ I was thinking the juxtaposition caused it to be far more interesting.”
The challenge that is biggest had been equipping the natural venue space—as couples need to generate every thing necessary for the big event; there’s nothing provided. “It’s really a clear home with the exclusion of those amazing items. We had to produce a kitchen area, and bring a generator in for energy, every furniture piece, and restrooms,” she claims. With the aid of certainly one of BAZAAR Bride’s wedding planners that are best, Joy Proctor, and florist Kelly Kaufman, it all arrived together seamlessly, captured by BAZAAR Bride top photographer, Ryan Ray.
