Happy Anniversary to Briana and Jason, Our First-Ever Brides Live Wedding Winners!

Brides Live Wedding

We can't believe that it's already been a year since our first Brides Live Wedding winning couple, Briana and Jason, said "I do" in a glamorous blush and mint wedding overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Southern California couple had only been engaged for a few short months before they found out they had won the million-dollar wedding of their dreams — with a catch: Every wedding detail from the dress to the honeymoon would be voted on by America.

Beach Chic Wedding Inspiration - Brides Live Wedding

Bride Briana was overjoyed when she saw that the "Beach Chic" inspiration board had won. The California girl had always imagined getting married by the water and this theme — plus the seaside St. Regis Monarch Beach venue — was exactly what she envisioned for her big day.

The inspiration board came to life in all aspects of the wedding-day decor, especially the stunning centerpieces. Nautical-inspired vases wrapped in rope were overflowing with ranunculus blooms flown in from Italy. Seashells, tealights, and peach-hued glassware completed the look.

The wedding cake, created by "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro of Carlo's Bakery also perfectly captured the theme using hand-painted chocolate seashells, brown sugar "sand," and lifelike sugar flowers.

Briana fell in love with the strapless, fit-and-flare Oleg Cassini for David's Bridal wedding dress the second the tried it on — but had to wait until voters made their pick before getting to call it her own!
