For Kim and Matt, the love was definitely in the details. And with their co-owned event business, Travelin’ Taps, these two knew exactly what they wanted to experience on their most special day. Besides their love for each other, they invested a lot of thought into some very charming details for their wedding at the gorgeous Sunstone Winery in Santa Barbara’s wine country, the Santa Ynez Valley. One of the things we love about Sunstone in particular (besides their delicious wine) is that one truly feels that they have left the country and are at a vintage, deliciously-aged home and vineyard somewhere in the hills of Provence, France. And it’s no wonder, because the owners actually sought inspiration and actual materials from a place in France that so inspired them, they had to bring it back to the United States, to their beloved winery, Sunstone.
Special Touches: For table numbers, they had sheets of music to love songs; special signs for almost everything (see photos); asignature cocktail: The Violet Vow and so much more…
