Wine Country Wedding and Styled Shoot Gives an All New Meaning to White Wedding!

This elegant rustic-chic themed styled shoot utilizes a neutral color palette with a bespoke dress from top So Cal bridal gown designer Madeleine Fig. The opulent villa with details like handmade furnishings, stonework, rich wood furnishings and pool, complete with private helicopter naturally, is nestled in the heart of Southern California's incredible wine country. This is sure to inspire couples planning their own intimate destination wine country wedding! 

The small-wedding / elopement trend with several unique elements served as the inspiration behind this shoot. The venue boasts amazing views of the wine country and also has a dedicated helicopter pad on site to offer guests private tours! The muted hues of bronze, gold, silver, copper, combined with plenty of greenery reflect the outdoor Southern California vibe and blend flawlessly into the rugged landscape extending into the distance. Overall, the scene conveys a simple purity that relaxes the senses. The handmade furniture such as the palette bar, the desert table with back drop, and the mismatched table settings lend a custom DIY element to the theme. The beauty of the scenes, the models, the make-up, the hair, and the dresses were expertly captured and edited by a talented photographer from Monterey. The videographer from Los Angeles worked alongside providing both drone and handheld coverage that documented the full process.

This was a truly collaborative effort that brought talented vendors from across California. It turned out to be much bigger than originally intended and consisted of a full crew included: photographer, videographer with drone, models, couture bridal designer, makeup and hair, florist, catering, calligraphy, accessories, rentals, and graphic design. Behind the scenes, the chemistry between the models and the crew added to the energetic and fun vibe on set!
