Sunstone Villa Wedding

 Aux États-Unis

As part of our Venue Features, we will have editions titled Aux États-Unis, for those seeking European influence wedding venues stateside. If you are seeking European-inspired venues in the United States, a Sunstone Villa wedding is nothing short of magical.

Sunstone Villa Wedding Grove
The Ganeys

Nestled in the hills of Santa Ynez, California, Sunstone Villa feels almost otherworldly. The rolling olive grove, authentic French limestone, delicious wines, 19th century French antiques, and the scent of rosemary and lavender feel as if you have been whisked away to the Provençal French countryside.

European Influence

The old world architectural masterpiece is the epitome of European influence, built completely from authentic materials. On a trip to France, the founders discovered architectural remains of buildings in villages of various regions of France.

Built with authentic reclaimed materials from various buildings in the regions of Marseille and Provence, the entire structure is constructed with French limestone. The wood beams and antique pieces were reclaimed from a 19th century lavender factory, once owned by Queen Victoria.

Sunstone Villa Wedding Accommodations

The villa has five luxurious master suites, all with their own private bath. European influence continues in the guest experience: Each suite is appointed with genuine European antiques, fine Italian Gentili linens, L’Occitane bathroom essentials, real wood burning fireplaces, and delicious Sunstone wines. Breathtaking 360 views of the Santa Ynez Valley set the tone for a truly unforgettable experience. For a sensory experience, take a private tasting and tour of Sunstone Winery with exclusive wines and a paired artisan charcuterie board.

The villa can host up to ten guests in accommodations. This is ideal for an intimate wedding with your nearest and dearest for a multi-day event, soaking up all Santa Ynez has to offer.
