REAL WEDDING :: ALICIA + BRIAN {Message in a Bottle}

Coast to Coast.

Brian knew there was something special about Alicia. When Alicia received a job offer that would relocate her to a new city, New Orleans, Brian made a bold decision to move too so he could be with her.

On their third anniversary, Brian and Alicia returned to their home state of California for the holidays. He planned a romantic dinner and gondola ride in the Newport Beach harbor. At the end of the ride, a bottle floated by with a note from Brian. As Alicia finished reading the note asking her to marry him, Brian got down on one knee and gave her a “stunning ring.”
