Inspired by the groom's Italian heritage and a shared love of Tuscan design, a California couple threw an intimate bash in the lush gardens of San Ysidro Ranch.

The end of the night was reserved for dancing to funk and classic rock on the stone patio, but first came a toast from Adam's production-assistant brother, Andrew, that turned into the evening's most cinematic moment. "In the middle of it, he announced he was going to film our first post-ceremony kiss," recalls Sharon. As he shot the "scene," audience members from the movie industry-heavy crowd yelled out, "Quiet on the set!" and "Action!" "It was an unplanned moment, and we got to share it with the people we love," says Sharon. "How wonderful is that?" Photo: Gia Canali Photography
