Waking up in sunny Southern California was a welcome change for our gang of East Coasters, and you can't beat the incredible ocean views from the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point—the gorgeous site of Brides Live Wedding! With the wedding just three days away, there is still plenty to get done and we'll be sharing all of our behind-the-scene pics here. It's so exciting to see all of the stunning wedding details that your votes helped select come together (check out all of the winning details!) and don't forget to tune in on Sunday, April 7 at 7 p.m. EST to watch the winning couple Briana and Jason say "I do" live.
