After thousands of votes from readers like you, this year's Brides Live Wedding went off without a hitch! Our winning couple, Katie and Sean, were chosen out of hundreds of couples vying for this once-in-a-lifetime celebration and received an all-expense paid destination wedding at Sandal's Whitehouse European Village & Spa in Jamaica. The catch, though, was that they had to give up all control over the wedding and let you plan everything — from our bride's dress to the décor and cake.

The Tropical Twist-themed bash — an elevated, fresh take on a classic island aesthetic — came together beautifully. With a lush ceremony arch made up of monstero leaves, and white phalaenopsis and dendrobium orchids, it was hard not to fall hard for that ceremony set-up. Not to mention the masterful mix of mahogany, a variety of coral blooms, and deep green monster leaves filling up the reception space. "Those floral center pieces were to die for," bride Katie noted. "They were so full and bright and amazing! Sitting at the reception, it was all just so beautiful."

"The night went magically," the groom Sean said. "The reception was flawlessly beautiful, the tears were flowing, the smiles were the biggest I've ever seen, and I was so enthralled with by the picturesque location. It was difficult not to take time out and savor that night."
