Go Behind-the-Scenes at This Year's Brides Live Wedding!

Brides Live Wedding

In case you missed it: Last week we revealed the final episode of Brides Live Wedding, the weekend when our bride and groom Katie and Sean tied the knot in a ceremony and reception at Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa planned entirely by you! Now, we're taking you behind-the-scenes at how such an enormous and glamorous event could come together. From the film crews, to the touch-up team on hand, here's an inside look at how a televised wedding selected by popular vote comes together.

Julie Sabatino of The Stylish Bride was on-hand in Jamaica to help Katie and her bridesmaids find perfect accessories for the big day. Here, she's setting up all of the gorgeous goods up for grabs!

Sean and Katie share a sweet kiss at their wedding rehearsal on the beach.

While waiting to walk down the sandy aisle, Katie and her dad steal a heartwarming hug.

Our film crew sets up at the ceremony to make sure every sweet moment — from the vow exchange to the first kiss! — is captured.

Getting the bride wedding-ready is no small task! Both Sandals staff and Mary Kay's makeup artists, including their global makeup artist Luis Casco, were on hand to make sure Katie looked picture perfect.

BRIDES staffers put finishing touches on those perfect Tropical Twist plate settings!

Casco was at the ready to make touchups during the bridal party's photo session before the ceremony.

Sandals staff anxiously await the arrival of guests at the reception.
