Enchanting Wedding at Cal-a-Vie Health Spa, Vista CA
As seen on Style Me Pretty
This inspiration shoot was the product of our first KCK Collective Experience – a luxury portfolio building workshop for photographers designed to enhance their portfolio and expand their knowledge of the luxury wedding market. The workshop and artistic direction behind this editorial is led by Brooke Keegan Special Events, Kaleb Norman James and myself – photographer, Jacqui Cole.
Inspiration for the shoot was drawn from the elegance of the venue – Cal-a-Vie Health Spa which is quietly nestled in the hills of Vista, CA. The venue is extremely unique and the grounds are reminiscent of French gardens. We knew that it would be the perfect location for our feminine and romantic shoot.
The 400 year old French chapel imported from Dijon France offered an incredible location to hold the Ceremony. With oversized oak doors, rows of pews and the intimate setting inside, Kaleb created florals that lined the aisle, filled the altar table and adorned the taper candle chandeliers. With no electricity in the Chapel, pillar candles were used to create romance and warmth in the space.
The florals played off of the natural stone surroundings and green hills of Vista, CA. The elegant tablescape included warm whites, creams, peach and soft green tones. The place cards were uniquely placed inside glass cloches with a touch of hellebores. The Ark Rentals provided the curated china, flatware and glassware to create a refined yet whimsical vision.
