Grand Tradition Wedding 2021 - Bouquet by Tularosa Flowers

A Grand Tradition wedding 2021 in Fallbrook is always at the top of my list. I only live about 15 minutes from this dream of a venue, and it’s gardens and waterfalls remind me of Hawaii! The wedding day was extra warm, but Grand Traditions gardens offer plenty of outdoor shaded options for photography, no matter the time of day. 

Worth the Wait

Annie and Andre waited an extra year to get married due to Covid, but I think it was worth the wait! It was lovely to meet their families, especially their adorable nieces and nephews. Their flower girl/niece loves flowers as much as I do! On their original day, I photographed their engagement photos at Wind and Sea beach in La Jolla.

I was lucky enough to see a photo of Annie’s wedding gown long before the wedding day, and I knew it would be a showstopper. Seeing it in person on Annie took everyone’s breath away. What a gorgeous bride!

A Colorful Wedding Palette

The color palette of this Grand Tradition wedding stole my heart. I love the bold pink and deep red hues mixed with peacock blue. It looks incredible with the foliage at Grand Tradition.

Annie and Andre’s ceremony in front of the waterfall looked incredible. Dawn of Tularosa Flowers created large, gorgeous, and full floral arrangements that transferred from the ceremony to the reception tent.

Grand Tradition Estate Reception

At the reception, the tables were filled with flowers and lots of candlelight, accented with a little jar of honey for each guest. In the center of the tent, Tularosa Flowers arranged the tall pieces from the ceremony to create a stunning focal point. Annie and Andre’s sweetheart table sat at the head of the tent, so they had a clear view of all of their guests.
