Leaundra and Josh: Grand Tradition Arbor Terrace wedding

Leaundra and Josh have known each other for a very long time. They met when they were just kids, living down the street from each other. However, it wasn’t until they had both grown up, moved away from home, and dated other people that they actually became interested in each other. But once they knew it was love, they knew it was forever. That’s what happens when you marry your best friend.

I had such a great time with these two at their Balboa Park engagement session and was really looking forward to seeing the dynamic of these two families together at their wedding, knowing that they had all known each other for year. Sure enough, the wedding was not only beautiful, but filled with warmth and loving emotion from everyone around them. And what a celebration!!

Leandra and Josh were married at the Arbor Terrace at the Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, California.

We were able to capture Leaundra’s dad’s first look at his daughter on her wedding day, and it was one of the most touching moments I have ever witnessed.
