Published on 100 Layer Cake | Oceanic | Solage Wedding Photographer, Calistoga


So thrilled to finally share this beautiful collaboration between Rion Designs,Cole Drake Events, Solage, Casa de Perrin, and many other amazing artists, featured today on 100 Layer Cake! This take on a Solage wedding was inspired by the ocean, one of my own greatest sources of inspiration. Hop on over to 100 Layer Cake to see the full vision here!


In the words of Rion's talented designers: The look of this particular shoot was inspired by a photo of the ocean at dusk. It is harmoniously vibrant and easy. Aiming to capture that feeling, we used solid whites as a base for the colorful and high shine elements you see throughout the design. Our art and upholstery teams came together to create the ombre effect on the napkins and benches for dining. Two of our favorite pieces from this shoot are the scalloped bar and the fringe chandeliers. They both bring that feeling of oceanic movement and while complex in design, feel totally effortless.

Warming layers of pinks and corals continue in the custom florals and tablescape, evocative of pink rays that reflect on the water as the sun begins its evening descent. Gilded rings adorned with cascading florals are suspended above the tables, gently pivoting as chimes in the wind. Clear oil lamps in glass cylinders along with silver beaded pillows, finish off the look, casting a caustic-like shine.
