A exclusive behind-the-scenes look at 13 couples' big day at the Empire State Building.

Planning for Brides.com’s Valentine’s Day Weddings began months prior to Feb. 14, but it wasn’t until the eve of the big day that the magnificent setting on the 32nd floor of the Empire State Building came to life. Hour by hour the raw stark-white space transformed into an opulent sea of romantic reds and lush florals, combining classic and modern-day elements. With a rain downpour having washed away a winter snowfall earlier in the week, cool air and clear skies were in the forecast for the special day, leaving a breathtaking icy-blue view from inside the New York City skyscraper. —Cari Wolfert
