Oh my goodness you guys, today’s wedding is just an absolute dream… shades of lavender with accents of ivory and gold set against a tropical landscape, all captured in a soft glow by Brett Charles Rose Photo… makes this wedding blogger one smitten gal. And once you take a look at photos below, I think you will agree that Felicia & Stefan ‘s wedding at the Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens in Fallbrook, CA is an absolute tropical wedding dream.
From the bride, Felicia:
It was important to Stefan and I that the wedding reflect not only our styles, but “us” as a couple. Our goal– this celebration must scream the things we are crazy about: a tropical atmosphere, great music, romantic candle lighting, our shared love of themed events, our families, and each other. I chose the color palette of champagne and gold with pops of lavender, my favorite color since childhood. I wanted touches of sparkle in the table numbers, frames, gorgeous candle lighting everywhere, my gold heels, romantic marketing lighting throughout the tent, metallic vases and our sparkler send-off.
I used framed pictures and fun “table names”, from 13 different themed events we had been to together over the course of our four and a half years together. “The 70’s table” and coordinating picture from a Neil Diamond cover band concert. “The Captain’s Table” and picture of Stefan and I from his yacht-themed birthday a couple years back and several more.I wanted our wedding to ooze “us” and our love.
Incorporating our siblings talents was a must. Stefan’s brother, a very thoughtful and profound speaker, the best man, gave the most heartfelt speech. My brother, whose charisma can capture an audience, married us. My youngest brother, serenaded us during the ceremony singing “Stay With You” by John Legend and also sang as we danced to our first song as husband and wife.
