    Beautiful Wedding place

    From our first date, getting engaged at Brighton Beach we knew we would be married there. The weather for June was cold but nothing was going to stop us on our special day. The sky cleared and the lake was welcoming. With our family and closest friends made this day amazing. Brighton Beach will always be apart of us every year.
