It finally happened! Last night, Valentina and Eric said "I do" in Brides Live Million-Dollar Wedding at the gorgeous St. Regis Monarch beach in a spectacular event planned by Brooke Keegan. And thanks to you they had the wedding of the century.
Every aspect of our winning couple's big day was selected by our readers: You chose Valentina's stunning Monique Lhuillier dress, Eric's dapper Aspen tux, the romantic floral Cake Boss wedding cake, and, of course, the stunning eclectic elegance décor theme. (Be sure to watch our stream to see how all of the celebrity-style details came together!)
But first, we're taking you behind the scenes at the berry-hued, bougainvillea-filled celebration with a few exclusive photos!
First, we couldn't start talking about behind-the-scenes shots without taking a look at the foundation of it all — the wedding's stunning backdrop, the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort! We think we'll hang here for a few more days ...
Brides Editor-in-Chief Keija Minor and Publisher Michelle Myers are ready to go!
The show-stopping hanging bougainvillea centerpieces by White Lilac Inc. were the stars of the décor, while the clear blue cups and cool lucite chairs were the perfect finishing touches.
Here's another look at the jaw-dropping reception space.
Let's not forget the gorgeous arbor, either. Here's the flower-strewn structure right before the ceremony space filled-in!
