A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens is one of San Diego’s most exclusive and unique wedding venues.
With more than 37 years of professional service devoted to hosting special occasions, Grand Tradition provides a choice of two incredible wedding sites for a completely private ceremony and reception.
Beverly Mansion is an elevated reception space that overlooks Grand Tradition’s iconic heart-shaped lake and offers a wonderful indoor/outdoor setting. It’s adorned with crystal chandeliers, and glass-panel doors open to a veranda with a picturesque view of the lake. Couples exchange vows at the mansion’s lakeside gazebo or in front of the Compass Garden waterfall.
Get married at Arbor Terrace, and you’ll feel like you’re in a tropical paradise: The ceremony site is shaded by a lush, green canopy of palms and showcases a towering waterfall centerpiece. Receptions follow in an open-air, satin-draped tented pavilion, complete with a terraced stage, outdoor fireplace, and waterfall just above the dance floor.
Weddings are the primary focus of Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens, where the combination of gorgeous landscaping, exceptional service, and gourmet cuisine creates not just spectacular events, but memories you’ll keep for a lifetime.
