Venue Spotlight | Grand Tradition

By, January 22, 2016

For those seeking a destination-style wedding just outside of San Diego, one of our favorite spots is the all-inclusive Grand Tradition. We have photographed many weddings at Grand Tradition over the years, and have likely covered every corner :) Located in Fallbrook, CA, the property’s 30 acres of rolling green hills and tropical gardens has something for everyone, including two main venue options onsite. Here are examples of each:

Beverly Mansion

If your style is a bit more traditional and classical, our suggestion is the Beverly Mansion, a classic Victorian estate that overlooks the property’s idyllic heart-shaped lake. Ceremonies at the Beverly Mansion are held outdoors by the gazebo, where couples have the option of being brought out by horse and carriage. It definitely has a storybook feel!

After exchanging vows, guests can dance the night away under massive Swarovski crystal chandeliers. And to end the evening, nothing beats a fun and impressive sparkler grand exit, which is sure to leave your guests in awe :)

Arbor Terrace

For those seeking a more laid-back, paradise vibe to their day, we recommend the property’s Arbor Terrace and Pavilion. Inspired by the aesthetics of Hana, Hawaii, the Terrace is set against a gorgeous waterfall backdrop, and is adorned with paths covered in beautiful flowers. The Pavilion, where receptions are held, offers features such as the Hospitality Fountain, which is great for photos. There is also a cozy outdoor fireplace, which is a nice comfortable spot to enjoy a relaxing moment with guests.

All Glammed Up by Brides Amore | Wedding at The Grand Tradition

By, April 18, 2013

Helping brides become picture perfect for their wedding day is something we pride ourselves on at Brides Amore. For example, Jatziri recently married the love of her life, Geovani, at the gorgeous Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, California. To doll her up on her big day, Jatziri contacted our team via Facebook. We we were happy to create a custom plan for Jatziri and her entire bridal party!

I always love to make my brides look and feel perfectly beautiful on their special day.  This is why we always customize each look for every one of our brides. A few weeks prior to the wedding, we meet up with Jatziri for a trial run. After exploring options with her hair and makeup, we came up with a style for her – large loose curls paired with a subtle smokey eye.

Before the wedding itself, we carried over Jatziri’s custom look to all of the girls in her bridal party. The girls had a great time getting made up together, and looked simply stunning!

With her soft, glamorous curls, and subtle, smokey eyes, Jatziri looked incredible! We made sure to use waterproof mascara and eyeliner in anticipation of the flowing tears!

Jatziri’s main concern was that her hair and makeup last throughout the day and into the night. With a little help from some oil-controlling primers, and long lasting Airbrush Makeup, she and her bridal party danced well into the evening, without worry!
