Tucked away in the rolling hills of Vista, California is the gorgeous Cal-a-Vie Health Spa. Since 1986, the historic French Provençal spa has been overflowing with intricate detailing, beautiful textures, and stunning light. We used Cal-a-Vie as our inspiration for the shoot, handpicking each additional element to showcase the already stunning scenery.  Plain Jane Posy created an abundance of floral arrangements that really featured elegance and luxury. Jane made sure to stick to a classic color combination of whites and greens while still incorporating different textures to make a diverse color palette. Bree, owner of I Love You More Events did an outstanding job making sure each individual component came together effortlessly to fit our overall vision.  For our bride and groom, we really felt it was important to keep their look classic and timeless. Our bride wore a beautiful couture Rosa Clara gown with delicate lace detailing and a breathtaking cathedral length veil. She wore a stunning vintage diamond ring from Olive Ave Jewelry and classic shoes which had a beautiful silk bow ankle strap detail from Bella Belle. We wanted the groom in a clean black tux to keep with the theme as well.  Peggy Liao created a stunning four-tiered masterpiece. A wedding cake that provided that visual wow factor that is part and parcel of all classic celebrations.  The talented Flourish Calligraphy took her inspiration from the venue, specifically the stone walls when she was designing all of the paper goods. She mixed different hues of grey, ivory, and soft taupe to play off of the natural tones of the beautiful setting. For our reception tablescape, the design was inspired by the elaborate walls in the reception space. The french linen chairs from Archive Rentals provided that touch of luxury we craved. We added a plethora of florals around the table to add an overwhelming sense of romance to the scene. The ivory chiffon table linen from Mrs. Freund & Co. was a very important element that we knew we wanted to incorporate in our design. The soft, draping fabric really took the whole tablescape to the next level. Overall, we wanted to feature elegance and romance in this inspirational shoot, and Cal-a-Vie was the perfect location for us to do just that!
