A Joyful Personalized California Wedding, featured on Martha Stewart Weddings

By |2020-01-27T13:52:28-07:00January 27th, 2020|Featured, Featured Press, Real Wedding|

This utterly gorgeous wedding, featured on Martha Stewart Weddings, beamed love, joy, and dreams of Tuscany (Sunstone Villa helped to make those visions become a reality)…

Alongside planners from RMBO Collective, Geáda, creative director for Marie Forleo, and Bryan, a senior production coordinator for Walt Disney Animation Studios, worked to create an event with a “sense of presence,” where “guests could lose themselves in celebration.” They opted for a color palette of black and white with accents of pink and peach, and made every decision based on the idea of throwing a “Hell Yes” wedding—one where they included only details and elements that they absolutely loved and could say “hell, yes!” to.
