The beautiful Ainsley and the handsome Vincent celebrated their marriage with the party of a lifetime. Monroe, Louisiana was the site for this memorable wedding celebration, which included a wedding party of forty-three.

Around a thousand people attended the Ceremony at Jesus the Good Shepherd Catholic Church followed by a spectacular reception at the Bayou DeSiard Country Club.

The beautiful Alina and handsome Christopher chose the spectacular wedding venue Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, California as the location for the fabulous wedding celebration.

Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens is Southern California’s most lush and expansive private ceremony and reception destination located in North County San Diego.

With acres of landscaped gardens, waterfalls, rolling green lawns, fountains and a heart-shaped lake guests are presented with a choice of two venues on the property; one exquisitely formal and the other vibrantly botanical.

Godfather Films has filmed both locations many times and love them both. Alina and Christopher chose the lush Arbor Terrace for their celebration.
