We're so excited for Briana and Jason who said "I do" live today in Brides Live Wedding! Preparations for their gorgeous wedding started early as our planners worked nonstop on the incredible ceremony site. Sparkling seashells lined the aisles, while the columned rotunda was draped in gauzy, romantic fabric.

TRESemmé celebrity stylist Jeanie Syfu was on hand to make sure Briana's hair looked absolutely perfect for the big day. (Her gorgeous half-up hairstyle—and all of the wedding details—were voted on by Facebook fans like you!) While the bride and her fabulous bridesmaids got ready, an expert from the St. Regis Monarch Beach was on hand to open the champagne—with a saber!

As the bridal party got ready upstairs, our incredible musical guests were in rehearsals. Briana walked down the aisle to Matt Goss's newest single, "I Do," and the new Mr. and Mrs. had their first dance as husband and wife to Gloriana's "(Kissed You) Good Night."

In the minutes leading up to the ceremony, our make up artist helped keep Briana out of the sun and our bridesmaids, wearing White by Vera Wang from David's Bridal, and our groomsmen, in tuxedos by Jos. A. Bank, got set to head down the aisle. The adorable flower girls and ring bearer did an fantastic job! The bride was escorted by her father, and after a touching ceremony and emotional vows, Briana and Jason said "I do!"

No detail was left untouched by our beautiful "Beach Chic" wedding décor theme. Escort cards were attached to vintage compasses, and the romantic ranunculus and duster miller centerpieces were placed in chic glass and rope vases.

Congratulations again to Briana and Jason, as stay tuned for even more behind-the-scenes photos from Brides Live Wedding. (And don't worry if you missed watching the wedding live—you can replay it here!)
