There are three reasons California is my favorite place in the world (though I love to travel): the variety of landscape and abundance of nature, the laid back people, and the wine. Growing up an hour away from Napa and the daughter of big wine-drinkers, I was practically nursed on Napa wine! Needless to say I did not pass up the opportunity while in Santa Barbara to be a part of a sunrise winery wedding shoot led by Mike Larson, a renowned winery and estate wedding photographer in southern California. The Sunstone Winery was built by a family of wine-lovers whose vision for the place was inspired by the French countryside To achieve this look they built the entire place out of discarded stones of ruined buildings in France. Grab a glass of Chardonnay and enjoy the loveliness!
The morning started with a soft, romantic (albeit freezing) fog
