We couldn’t be happier to share Joanna and Anthony’s wedding at Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook, CA. Despite being arguably one of the most beautiful locations in Fallbrook this venue’s beauty still can’t hold a candle to the beauty of this couple and their obvious love for one another and their families. The couples wedding took place on October 7th, 2017 and despite being fall thermometers were reading up into the 90’s.  Although no heat wave was going to get this bridal party down, they all stayed cool as can and thanks to the lush greenery shading the estate the heat was unnoticeable.

Joanna arrived with her bridesmaids after getting dolled up with Emily at a house they rented near Pala Mesa Golf Resort. While the girls munched, sipped and laughed the guys shot some pool in the groom suite next door. Joanna slipped into her gorgeous ballroom-wedding gown from Ferndales Bridal as both moms and maids looked on all wowed by how beautiful she looked. Joanna’s wedding dress was gorgeous with a deep plunging neckline, beaded mesh bodice and full ballroom skirt it was nothing less than dreamy. Anthony and his groomsmen looked dapper in blue and burgundy suits with cognac dress shoes.

The ceremony site Joanna and Anthony put together for their wedding is maybe the most beautiful I have ever seen at The Grand Tradition. The flowers and ceremony arch were fairytale worthy with roses and hanging burgundy amaranthus giving unparalleled elegance.

The elegant vibes continued into the reception area, which featured statuesque centerpieces, gold chargers, driftwood and lanterns adorning the tables. It was truly a breathtaking site and you can tell the couple thought of every little detail. We were able to capture some beautiful photos of the couple around the estate before they joined their guests for dinner and speeches. Everyone was having an amazing time eating, drinking and socializing in the beautiful reception space. Heartfelt toasts and an air guitar serenade (you heard us right, air guitar serenade) by the groom and his mother to the bride topped off dinner in such a fun and unexpected way. The dance floor was packed all night long as DJ Sage did amazing mixing that even had us moving our hips as we snapped away. The only thing anyone would take a break for was the photo booth, which was equally busy throughout the night and offered some fun entertainment for guests as they all posed the night away.

The night ended with an epic sparkler exit due to the sheer number of guests still present it was like a sparkler tunnel, which made for awesome photos. It was hard to say goodbye to Joanna and Anthony because we had such a great time with these guys, what can we say, they are beautiful people. Wishing you both a wonderfully fulfilling life together!
