Jennifer and Brian had been planning a wedding when they found out Brian was soon to be transferred to Tokyo. A courthouse ceremony was planned, but the sweet folks over at The Big Fake Wedding had something else in mind. They planned this beautiful backyard wedding as a total surprise to the groom. And from the giant smiles perma-plastered on the couple's faces, all of their work was clearly appreciated!
