{Published :: Romantic Tuscan Wedding :: 100 Layer Cake}

From the minute you step foot onto Cal-a-Vie Health Spa in Vista, CA you feel as if you have been transported to old world Europe. The 200 private acres of rolling hills and vineyard, stone buildings, and 400 year old Chapel and L’Orangerie imported from Dijon, France are truly magical. Planning an inspiration shoot at Cal-a-Vie was an absolute dream and we couldn’t be more excited to share the shoot featured on 100 Layer Cake TODAY! Check it out HERE!

Molly from Tres Chic Affairs and Jen from Third Bloom were the masterminds behind everything and did an incredible job bringing the vision for the shoot to life! From Molly with Tres Chic Affairs…”Deep reds, rustic wood, lots of brass, marble, and organic elements played a major role in bringing to life this romantic Italian inspired wedding that of course would not be an Italian affair without amazing food and drink to compliment the stunning tablescape. Cal-a-Vie’s own chef prepared an assorted Crostini bar full of rustic ingredients paired with a Limoncello Thyme & Tuscan Pear cocktails. For the table scape we wanted everything to feel rich, but organic. The plant dyed table runner and arrangements filled with fresh fruit, berries and herbs perfectly complimented the antique brass and vintage glassware, and The wood burned menus with distressed gold leaf detailing were inspired by many of the weathered stone walls that are found within the streets of old Italian towns. We created an intimate and lush sweetheart table with a special treat for the bride and Groom, a fresh berry pizzette as a perfect start to a rustic feast. As if the gorgeous Italian marble inspired cake wasn’t enough! We were so inspired by our real life couple and also wedding photographers, and their European look. We wanted to give them a timeless look with a modern twist. Her soft blush gown and veil and his high fashion maroon suit were a stunning combination. And what Tuscan inspired wedding would be complete without a vintage Italian scooter to ride off into the vineyards? One of my favorite details!”
