Sunstone Winery Wedding : Bianca + Matt


A denouement is not a complete or fully resolved ending but a satisfying closure to a story. It means in French “an untying, a relaxing of a knot of complexity.” Denouement is the rest that comes when all the disparate plot lines of the a story, gnarled and taut, have been untied and an order comes about that brings a new moment of true peace.

Denouement is an ending that serves as the prelude for a new beginning; there is always the next turn in the road. Often times, we don’t allow endings to be noted, let alone celebrated. Therefore we never allow denouement to invigorate the upward movement and creation of a new story.

At Bianca and Matt’s wedding last Tuesday at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, we celebrated the denouement of two stories ending and one new story beginning.

Bianca and Matt…I have no words to adequately express how much I love you. How much I need you. How much I want you. Together. In my life. For the first time I was able to see, truly, you both melt into each other and grant the permission to be captivated by the other. Dare I steal Matt’s word…but I will. Your wedding day was magical. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it. I lovelovelove you, even on the days when I don’t show it. Congrats and I hope you spent time forcing Matt to work on his tan in Mexico! πŸ™‚ Much Love and Appreciation… j*

Jacky, one of Bianca’s dearest friends, gave Bianca a pair of Christian Louboutin’s to wear on her wedding day. Uhhhh, makes me ask myself where Jacky was when I got married! πŸ˜‰

Bianca is…how shall I say this….DRAMATIC. If you’ve met her, everything! is either THE BEST thing she’s ever eaten, how SHE ALMOST DIED in two inches of water, or the time she’d said NEVER, EVER AGAIN…EVER…and then did it the following day. She’s just like that. So when Bianca picked her Pronovias wedding dress, it just fit her personality perfectly!

Lucky for me, I had the distinct pleasure of working with Jaclyne from Heavenly Blooms…she’s extraordinarily talented and really helped hone the vision for the wedding day…

Many thanks to the uber fab Nicole Deanne for hair and makeup. Bianca looked positively radiant…and I have no doubt that last minute iridescent eye shadow Nicole use had a little something to do with it! πŸ˜‰

Just before Bianca got into her dress, the amazing Stephanie Fay came in to capture candid shots. Like this one. It made me cry. I’ll be the first to say my family is crazy–oh like we dance after someone gets into a wedding dress!–but this moment will forever be frozen in my mind as one of my favorites from the day.

So…people wanted to ask when I knew. When I knew I was supposed to be my sister’s wedding photographer. I can pinpoint that moment precisely. The picture on the right was when it clicked for me. Stephanie was shooting, but I was DYYYYING without my camera. I ran to the other end of the room, and started shooting again. The minute I knew I couldn’t capture moments on her wedding, was the moment I realized I had to.
Jewelry: J. Crew

After getting dressed Bianca went to the ever gorgeous Sunstone Winery. No, really, this place is unreal. I could shoot a wedding everyday there. It was perfection. While Bianca waited for Matt, I snapped a few photos of her…seeing how I can always make her laugh…

…Okay, and I can also bring out her inner fierceness, too! Special thanks to The Treasured Petal for Bianca’s hairpiece…

First Look

This photo was captured by Stephanie

This is proof. Proof that not only does my sister think I’m funny, but now her husband as well! πŸ˜‰


Matt, you look so darn handsome!!

The beauty of the Sunstone Winery is that if offers so many locations for wedding photos…

Go on wit yo bad selfs…

I was so, so, so thrilled to work with my favorite videographers, Elysium. Julie and Alex have become my friends over the years and I love them…no, adore them! They’re amazing at what they do, so having them shoot the wedding at my side was a HUGE honor! Alex was actually the one who placed Bianca and Matt in this location…and I loved it!

It was rather warm as we were shooting wedding pictures, so we decided to head back into the shade. On our way back, Bianca and Matt were being all lovey and stuff, and these photos are some of my favorites from the day…because it’s just so them…

Again, here’s Jaclyne working her floral magic with Bianca’s bouquet…….lurrrrrved it!

So…so, so so….here’s where the thank yous get outta control.
The people behind the wedding day coordination were the fabfabfabulous Anna and Angel of Events of Love and Splendor. Per usual, they worked with Bianca to refine ideas and execute a flawless day. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them in the past, but seeing their diligence and hardwork for such a personal time in my life…they’re incredible at what they do!

Bianca decided to get crafty and make a few things for the wedding details. Oh, remember those days of Bountiful Harvest?!?! Ummm, yeah, they’re way gone! Once Bianca settled on a wedding theme, everything feel into place and the ball got rolling. Many thanks to Jeni of Found Vintage Rentals for working her magic and adding elements to the wedding day to make it absolutely breathtaking. Jeni, you’re the bomb.

Also from Jeni’s vintage collection were these white church pews. When my sister saw them, she died. Then revived just long enough to call me and let me know she found dream details for her wedding. Jeni’s touches throughout the wedding were phenomenal!

I was lucky enough to walk down the aisle with this princess. I am so smitten with Ryen it’s not even funny.

I might be biased, but Bianca’s ceremony was one of my favs…photo by JD

One of the funniest things happened…
My dad (who officiated a portion of the ceremony) almost forgot to have them exchange their rings. JD was in just the right location to capture his reaction…

Stephanie captured the First Kiss perfectly…

We immediately left to Root 246 for the wedding reception and I got back to shooting…you’ll see again and again how Jeni’s vintage collection, Angel’s coordination, and Jaclyne’s floral design worked so well together…

One of my favorite parts of their reception…a dessert bar filled with goodies from Solvang Bakery

First Dance…Stephanie’s angle…
…with perfect music provided by the raddest DJ ever, Jeff Kishi

First Dance…my angle…

    Beautiful photos! I always feel like taking photos for those you love is so hard. It either goes wonderfully because you know the person so well and you can capture all the important details, or it goes horribly because you know the person so well there’s no way you can capture all of the important details. In this case, it’s definitely the former. Your sister is a lucky gal.

    So gorgeous! Bianca is a lucky lady, these photos are so fantastic. It looks like it was a truly magical day, and the venue was to die for! I think the first look photos are just so, SO gorgeous, the look on her face when she’s seeing him see her is beautiful, heart-melting, and truly real – you can tell that she feels so pretty & in love right at that moment. Perfect!

The slideshow just shows how incredibly happy she was and it gave me chills. I mean I LITERALLY teared up! They are going to be so happy together I can just see it from your photographs. You and Bianca are both beautiful people on the inside in out. Keep up the amazing work and thank you for ALWAYS inspiring me!!! πŸ™‚

    It’s funny cause i never thought i would be able to distinguish the difference, but i was able to see the difference in styles of photography between you and Jd and your other photography assistance. But besides that fact lol, the wedding looked beautiful and i wish i could of been there to see it first hand. Many blessings to Mr. and Mrs. Olthoff. Your craft is pure genious Jasmine.

    They are amazing. Seriously, I feel like I appreciate all the details of the day so much more seeing them in the pictures! And, hello…how did I miss the super cute lemonade and ice tea stand??! Bummed about that. Also, I just want to admit to you both that I almost screwed up royally with the whole french pronounciation of "denoument" in my reading. Luckily we have the walking dictionary as a best friend so I didn’t ruin the whole thing!! B, you are such a beautiful bride…hurry back so I can hug you!!

    I had to comment from something i read in your post: Solvang Bakery! OMG, I am part danish and haven’t been there in probably 30 years. When I read those words BAM! it brought me back to the smell, the yummy, the heritage of my family.

    So happy you were both a bridesmaid and a photog for your sister.

  132. kristan

    September 14th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    BEAUTIFUL! Everything is beautiful, your images, the wedding and the love of life and family shows through. It looks like you found the balance between being in the wedding and shooting the wedding. Sisters are special. I’m lucky, I have three. "I smile because you are my sister. I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it." (our family sister motto)

    Ohhhhh Myyyyyy Gooooooodness! I knew I was excited to see your sister’s wedding, but it’s even more beautiful! This has to be my favorite wedding of yours of all time, maybe it’s because you were destined to photograph it, and it shows. And all those amazingly gorgeous details, the flowers, the dress, the vintage goodness! Congrats to Bianca + Matt! You two are so crazy cute together!

  148. Alicia Damron

    September 14th, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    I am breathless! I don’t why but I’m tearing up from looking at these. Maybe because I always wanted a twin sister, maybe because those florals are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. (I’ve never seen hens and chicks used in such a creative matter. I’ve only seen them in my mom’s terra-cotta planter with holes in the sides), maybe because her dress and shoes are out of this world, but I think it’s gotta be because I can feel the emotion from the day coming out of my computer screen…who knew that could happen? Beautiful, beautiful work by all three of you!

  149. Esther Chan

    September 14th, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    The look on your sisters face at the 1st look!! I got teary here at work. Love the succulents – so unexpected but beautiful. You were truly inspired for this wedding and your work here inspires me to press on : )

    Gasp…I love it. I am so glad you decided to shoot this, it would not have been the same without you.

    This is the first wedding that I have seen that has made me wish I could relive the day again.

Congrats to your sister and new brother-in-law!

    Wow! I agree with all the love everyone else has already left x10!! I’m so glad you decided to help document her day πŸ™‚ I totally have felt that, "Oh, I can’t stand not taking pictures." feeling!! I do it almost every where I go! I’m always always upset with myself when I make the choice to leave my SLR camera behind for whatever reason. Plus I don’t like depending on others to give me copies of the photos they take haha

  174. Jennifer in Sc

    September 15th, 2010 at 1:47 am

    These photos make me homesick for my family. Now I feel like a jerk for telling you not to photograph the wedding or you wouldn’t enjoy yourself. It is so cool seeing it through your eyes. I’m glad you didn’t listen to me!! I’m really happy for Bianca and Matt.

    The shot of them seeing each other for the first time reminded me of when my man Lars and I saw each other at the airport after so long apart. The emotion and the excitement all rolled into one, it really moved me.

    I have followed this blog for years, but have never posted a comment until today. I have to get this off my keyboard – this is THE most beautiful wedding I have EVER seen! Magazines, TV, other photography blogs; this one is hands DOWN the most gorgeous. The flowers, the table arrangements, bride, groom, shoes, dessert bar, every last incredible little detail is exceptional. And the fact that this wedding is tied to your sister, makes it all the more beautiful.

    I thought I recognized the venue. I went on a family vacation and we went wine tasting, and Sunstone was one of the vineyards. I fell in love with the facade & ambiance & rustic feel of the place. This is a gorgeous wedding and I’m so happy for your sister!!! Gorgeous photos, as always!!

    You and your sister look almost identical. Are you twins? It must’ve been special for you to capture your sister’s wedding. I know that I have felt uncomfortable taking photos at a family wedding, but that may be part of my personality.
