My Thoughts

Jaclynn and Shawn had an amazing story. They met and dated in high school and after some time apart they reconnected and eventually married. The wedding started with a beautiful message from Jaclynn to her Mom as she gave her away, and then more tears fell when Shawn gave Jaclynn’s two daughters a special gift symbolizing their joining as a new family. It was all heartwarming and I felt privileged to be a part of it. Jaclynn and Shawn had a beautiful tree planting ceremony, and their vows were heartfelt and amazing.

Their ceremony was so touching and meaningful that it was easy to get lost in the moments that they created. However, this was all set against a gorgeous backdrop. The Arbor Terrace side of Grand Tradition is like a private oasis. Grand Tradition is located in the center of Fallbrook but off the beaten path. If not for my GPS I’d have missed the turnoff. But once I made it to the venue I was blown away when I saw it. The waterfalls, trees, and plants are eye-popping and Jaclynn and Shawn’s purple wedding colors were perfect.

Grand Tradition has two sides. The Arbor Terrace side and the Beverly Mansion side. I haven’t yet worked on the Beverly Mansion side, but you can see pictures of both sides on their website. Fallbrook is a bit of a drive for me, but I would jump at the chance to officiate a wedding there again.
