Our wedding story today starts out with three separate stages- all setting the scene for a celebration of love and triumph that lasted three days in Santa Barbara’s beautiful wine country, the Santa Ynez Valley.
Like most couples, Michelle and AJ wanted something unique and to spend time with friends and family , who were all coming to their destination wedding; however, unlike most couples, they had a special cause for extra celebration, as the the groom AJ had battled – and beat- cancer. All event partners agreed to donate a portion of their profits to cancer research and we are proud to say that they raised over $78K, which was $38K over goal. This three day event was truly a celebration of life and it was our honor to bring everyone together over delicious food that suited each gorgeous venue and theme. Day One: The White Party, where everyone gathered at Sunstone Villa (wearing white of course) for some light , fun fare and games ; Day Two: The Welcome Reception at Gainey Winery and Day Three: The Wedding back at Sunstone Winery and Villa.
