Get ready — this lovely couple is getting married! Even more exciting? YOU get to be part of all the planning! Rewa Zakharia & Hunter Hickman, both attorneys, are our 2017 BRIDES Live Wedding couple. Though they are about to embark on their journey to happily ever after, the story behind the couple’s love is too sweet to skip over.

Opposites attract is the perfect way to describe our bride and groom’s relationship. When Hunter set his eyes on Rewa during their time in law school, it was a little something like love at first sight. The proposal was simply magical. Planned during Christmastime, Hunter popped the question at his Kentucky home, while friends and family were awaiting an engagement celebration.

We’re sure Rewa and Hunter couldn’t wait to share the news of her engagement, but the best is yet to come. With the help of master wedding planner Brooke Keegan, we’re throwing the couple a stunning ceremony at the Montage Laguna Beach resort. You’ll get to help us plan by voting on everything from Rewa’s dress to the wedding theme and beyond. But first, let’s start with the venue.

There’s nothing better than a romantic beach location for the big day, right? But Montage Laguna Beach takes it up a notch. Nestled on a stunning coastal bluff with sprawling views of the Pacific, the resort boasts over 30 acres of seaside splendor at the heart of Southern California’s artist colony. Rewa and Hunter will exchange vows at this tranquil ocean-side locale, and adding Keegan’s specular theme options, we’re sure this day will be nothing less than picture-perfect.

We chose the venue, but now it's your turn to get in on the wedding fun! Help Rewa choose every element of her big day, from the dress, makeup, hair, even a romantic honeymoon at Sandals, by voting at brideslivewedding.com.
