Claire and Frankie’s wedding at The Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook couldn’t have been a more perfect celebration. The energy in the air was electric. Glasses were charged, belly’s full, eyes soaked, cheeks sore and hearts bursting. Getting to know Claire and her mother throughout the wedding planning process to create this day made us to so excited to be able to photograph this wedding. The love at this wedding could be felt and seen and we truly feel so fortunate to have witnessed all of the emotion of this day. We are so happy to share Frankie & Claire’s emotional Great Gatsby themed wedding at The Grand Tradition Estate.
Claire & Frankie met through mutual friends and were acquaintances for about six years before they started seeing each other. They would see each other in passing or at parties but never really got to know one another until a friends birthday party, where they were finally hit over the head with it and it was full steam ahead ever since. Claire accidentally said “I love you” as she was saying goodbye sometime within the first couple weeks of dating Frankie. She got embarrassed and shewed him out, but the truth was she knew then. Frankie knew right away too. The couple spent their 1 year anniversary apart; Claire was in Africa on safari with her parents and Frankie couldn’t come with on such short notice since the couple was just getting established when it was planned. To make up for it they said they would go up to they’re cabin in lake arrowhead and celebrate when she returned from Africa. Claire got back in May but the couple didn’t make it up to the cabin until July 6th. They pulled up and suddenly string lights turned on illuminating the cabin’s exterior, then their song began to play. Frankie escorted Claire out of the car and walked her over to an area he had her good friend set up. Then, he got down on one knee and popped the question. The rest is history and today the couple took the next step and vowed their lives to one another. We love how Claire wrote in her own little vows to Ryder, Frankie’s son. This wedding was the perfect example of creating a family centered celebration. So that’s our spiel now go do the fun part and peep all of the soaked eyes, beaming smiles and bursting hearts below.
