Fallbrook Wedding Venue
220 Grand Tradition Way
Fallbrook, California 92028
With three distinctive venues encompassing 30 acres of gently rolling hills in a secluded rural valley of North County San Diego, Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens has something special to offer every newly engaged couple. Seven stunning waterfalls are featured throughout the botanical reserve, and each garden site has its own personality. They’ve also designed their wedding packages to be affordable by including extras that are normally paid upgrades at other venues.
The most formal site is the Beverly Mansion, surrounded by magnificent gardens and overlooking a heart-shaped lake. As you stand on the veranda, inhaling the fragrance of heirloom roses, it’s clear why so many couples come here to say “I do.” Before you, a vast expanse of lawn slopes down to a lakeside gazebo. Couples often take advantage of the site’s storybook quality by arriving in a white horse-drawn carriage before exchanging vows at the gazebo.
Receptions are held in the mansion’s Crystal Ballroom, a nostalgically elegant hall illuminated by glittering Swarovski crystal chandeliers. Opulent furnishings and Chiavari chairs accentuate the room’s dramatic glamour. At one end of the hall, a palatial presentation staircase awaits the newlyweds’ grand entrance. Other event-friendly amenities include a curtained stage for the head table, a hardwood dance floor, a baby grand piano and an English pub.
For couples who long for the exotic trappings of a destination wedding yet prefer to remain stateside, the Arbor Terrace Pavilion evokes the lush island ambiance of Hana, Hawaii. Embraced by gorgeously landscaped grounds with cascading waterfalls and palm trees swaying in the breeze, this favorite ceremony spot captures all the romance of a tropical paradise—without the need for air travel. Graceful bridges, water features and expansive lawns enhance the natural splendor.
The Pavilion itself adds its own charms to your reception, including arched French-style windows, a fabric-draped ceiling canopy and a built-in stone bar and buffet room. Designed to offer shelter while showcasing the outdoors, the three-sided Pavilion lets guests dine while gazing out at an elevated garden patio and dance floor, with a waterfall tumbling softly in the background and a fire blazing in a flagstone hearth.
Grand Tradition’s newest venue is Compass Garden, a decidedly California-casual choice for a cocktail hour or laid-back reception. A pathway meanders among colorful succulents, ornamental grasses and Mediterranean plants, and guests are also treated to a terrific view of the heart-shaped lake and a breathtaking sunset. Closer in, they can admire a stunning water feature that was recently awarded “Best in California.” Gatherings convene at the Orchid Bar, where wicker furnishings cluster around a central fire pit; overhead, punched-tin lanterns cast a warm glow over the festivities.
At the Grand Tradition Estate, couples will appreciate the exceptionally attentive, friendly service, which includes customized menus by culinary artists who take pride in serving only the freshest and most flavorful dishes. With three uniquely beautiful event areas, it’s no surprise that couples come from far and wide to celebrate at this enchanting wonderland.
