Vineyard Equestrian Ranch Stylized Shoot

"Never-ending trees, mountains, vines, and serenity....the perfect canvas to a stylized shoot at the new Epona Estate in Hidden Valley. Pastels, ivories, and golds were painted on this landscape by some of the best wedding artist in the business to create this one-of-a-kind stylized shoot.

Epona Estate is a privately owned 40 acre ranch with its "venue in the vines". It has a magnificent Rose Garden, organic garden and world class Vineyard with over 6,000 vines growing 8 varietals. Surrounded by gorgeous California Oak, Sycamore, Olive and Eucalyptus trees, including its own Pepper Tree Lane, it is located in the heart of the exclusive area known as Hidden Valley, which is adjacent to Westlake Village. The breathtaking Santa Monica Mountains and private ranches are the backdrop of Epona Estate.

How could any shoot at this location be less than stunning and magical with this backdrop? Add in the stunning floral arrangements done by Unique Floral Designs, rentals by A Rental Connection, Cake by Frost It Cupcakery, and desserts by Command Performance Catering, you get an even more amazing stage. Hop Aboard Trolley’s addition of their gorgeous white trolley was the icing on the cake. KRae Events coordinated and pulled together all of these vendors to make their vision come to life.

Award-winning wedding photographer Kimberlee Miller said, "What a dream to shoot at a venue that is so different than any other location in Southern California. Photographing at this picturesque location and working with the best vendors in the business could only lead to nothing but sheer beauty."

Mackenzie Jenewein from Elizabeth Mackenzie Designs added, "I wanted to design a wedding gown that would complement Epona Estate’s rustic charm and would make Grace feel beautiful while revealing her unique sense of style. My vision was a dress that was both elegant and had a playful side. The delicate floral crop top paired with an elegant ball gown skirt and birdcage veil gave Grace a classic silhouette with a fresh twist. Dresses so often are about the details. For Grace’s dress, I added a soft blue tulle lining that gave it a playful feel."
