California Chic Wedding by Jose Villa at Firestone Vineyard Featured On Style Me Pretty!

California Chic Wedding by Jose Villa
July 13th. 2009 by Abby Larson

For those of you that were checking the blog earlier today, you might have noticed that we were featuring a FABULOUS wedding that the forever talented Jose Villa shot. Then it disappeared! Well, being the brilliant photographer that he is, Jose wanted to put a few finishing touches on the images so we pulled them down to let him work his magic.
And here is the wedding in all its glory!

I think that it’s pretty clear…if you read SMP, you know that we go completely crazy over anything that Jose gets his hands on. Which is why, when one of our readers emailed us their recent wedding that Jose shot, we just about lost it. This wedding is so Jose, his style stamp gracing every image. It’s pure and utter gorgeousness.
The absolutely adorable bride and groom behind these delicious photographs were high school sweethearts. They met when she was 13 and he was 15. Swoon. The pair decided to have an intimate wedding of only 18 guests in Los Olivos, CA. And with so few guests, they were really able to design an AMAZING affair, working with only the best of the best in wedding vendors…
The bride is wearing a STUNNING Vera Wang gown. Hair and Make-Up was done by Mishel Wedding Party. The absolutely gorgeous flowers were done by Camille Panzarello of Camillia Floral Design, the calligraphy by Laura Hooper, and the invitations and letterpress by Sugarcube Press.
We have so much more from this beautiful wedding on the way!

I heart Jose. Really, really heart Jose. His work is always so clean, so vivid. It tells the story of the day with a sense of timeless romance, with a hint of whimsy, a hint of pure gorgeousness. And this wedding is no different. Held at a local winery in Los Olivos, California…the wedding is all about an intimate gathering of close friends and family. Love that.
The AMAZING cake was designed by Decadence and for me, was total perfection. Especially considering that the backdrop is the incredible barrel room of a winery…a place where you can’t help but feel like you are celebrating something really, really special.
{update: Since we made you wait the entire day to see these pictures again, we’ve added a few more that haven’t been seen yet!}
Ahh. It’s just the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen! Thank you so much to the beautiful bride, Crystal, for sending us her lovely wedding. And, thanks to Jose for continuing to inspire us to design a wedding that is all about the pretty!
