Highlights of Green Gables Wedding Estate

Tucked away in the hills of San Marcos, this English garden inspired wedding venue is a treasure trove of interesting backdrops and romantic settings. This turn-of-the-century historic landmark estate is set in total seclusion, nestled among a towering forest that dates back well over 100 years.

A day at Green Gables typically begins in the bridal suite inside of the 1890’s schoolhouse. Here, the bride can apply her finishing touches, put on her gown, and relax for a moment before walking down the aisle. Enjoy this gallery of recent photos captured by our studio at Green Gables Wedding Estate.

One of the more iconic locations at Green Gables is the 1951 Ford Truck. This vintage piece of Americana is a perfect backdrop for bridal parties and fun photos of the newlyweds.

Underwater Engagement Shoot: Taking the Plunge

By, December 08, 2011

Meagan and Jim are very excited to “take the plunge” into marriage! So this daring couple decided to do something fitting for their Save-the-Date card engagement photo… they decked themselves out in full wedding ensembles, and got drenched!  

With the help of a waterproof camera casing, and some creative maneuvering, our True team dove right in with them. The resulting photos were captured at the bottom of Jim’s parents’ large underground pool in Fallbrook, CA. 

Check out the results of this whimsical and romantic underwater engagement shoot below. As always, we’d love to hear what you think!
