We loved exploring the amazing Sunstone Villa with Cynthia and Ryan for their engagement photos this Winter. Being at Sunstone, you feel transported to the French countryside. The Villa, with its incredible architecture, is made entirely of reclaimed French limestone from Marseille and Provence, France. The wooden beams and antique pieces throughout the Villa were reclaimed from a 19th century lavender factory, once owned by Queen Victoria. Being there, you are filled with a feeling of serenity. In all directions, you see amazing views of the Santa Ynez Valley. Olive trees, lavender, and rosemary lend to the atmosphere of beauty and inspiration that surrounds. It is a perfect venue for a wedding, a proposal, an engagement and anniversary shoot or just a weekend away.
