This Real Wedding was held in Coto De Caza. It was at the Montage, with ocean view and very romantic.
Cortney, the bride, met us a recent Bride World expo. We scheduled a consultation where I later met both Cortney and Brian together and began to learn more about them as a couple. I learned that Cortney already had a daughter and when Brian decided to propose, he got down on one knee and proposed to both Cortney and her daughter Autumn.
It was also decided during the engagement to include Autumn as part of the wedding. I'm tearing up just describing it again. It was so sweet and loving. It showed how dedicated Brian was to take both Cortney and her daughter into his life. At the ceremony, Autumn walked down the aisle with Brian, and together the three became a new family.
