Etched Theory has crafted a vision that not only complements Sunstone’s style but also encapsulates a gentle, vibrant spring essence, mirroring the personality of the bride. To achieve this, the designer Sissi incorporated a palette of soft, lighter colors for the wedding, and adorned the venue with Tuscany-inspired furniture, creating an ambiance that exudes the delicate charm of a winery.
Our vision for the wedding is one of timeless elegance, evoking a sense of solemnity and reverence for the union of the couple.

Lorelei and Jason first met in their early twenties. They both went to Emory University but had never spoke until Jason started his first job, while she happened to intern at the firm across the street. They soon became very close through lots of work lunches together. Apparently those two young kids did not expect something like marrying their best friend upon that time, but they did decide to date their best friends.
It took Lorelei and Jason seven years with lots of long-distance to get to the day she walks through the aisle. There was certainly time that they might had been apart.

engagement photos with C&C Photography in 2021 at the beautiful Sunset Cliff of San Diego,t hey started to fall in love more with west coast and considered having their wedding there. The couple never visited Sunstone Villa, but Lorelei convinced it would be their perfect wedding location for a Tuscany-vibe fine arts style wedding. She first reached out to her great friends Annie and Candi at C&C Photography and then Sissi at Etched Theory Planning to build her visions together.
