There is nothing more beautiful than a spring wedding at the gorgeous Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook, California.  It is always a pleasure to work in our home town at one of our favorite places in all of southern California (I mean, we did get married there as well so clearly we like it).  Making the day even better was the company.  It was a honor to have the opportunity to capture the love that is shared by Jessica and Dan.

One of our favorite things to be a part of is the blending of two families.  It was truly beautiful to see the love that is felt amongst Jessica, Dan and their children.  Throughout the day the smiles, laughter, and even the tears (happy ones of course) were just a glimpse into the happiness that this family carries with them every day.

When the limo pulled up to the Grand Tradition  and the girls poured out you could see the excitement on everyone’s faces.  The girls enjoyed their time together getting ready in the bridal suite, while the boys enjoyed some local micro brews and played some pool… (Yeah, the Grand Tradition has a pool table in their groom suites!!)

The ceremony took place at the Arbor Terrace (one of two outdoor ceremony site options at the Grand Tradition).  With undoubtably the best ceremony backdrops in Fallbrook, and possibly San Diego county, it made for unbelievable photos.  With giant waterfalls and flowers everywhere that result in no need for outside florists, it is truly a breathtaking scene.

After the ceremony Kevin and I were able to whisk the happy couple away for some photos around the beautiful expansive grounds.  This place is a photographer’s dream, there is no doubt!  The grand entrance led to some touching speeches and specialty dances.  I loved the performance that Jessica’s daughters did for her, choreographed and everything! Dinner was most impressive.  It is not every wedding you see crab legs as an option.  This group knows how to have a good time, and never once did I see that dance floor empty through the night, thanks to some great music provided by Mike at Dancing DJ Productions.

We finished off the night with a grand exit of sparklers to put the cherry on top of an amazing evening.

It was a true pleasure to meet you guys, and we wish your family many years of happiness!  Thank you for making memories with EMRY!
