  • Lauren & Kristopher
    Episode 25
    Kristopher, a professional golfer, will marry his bride-to-be Lauren, overlooking - what else? - a golf course. This $1 million wedding kicked off with a $30k, 5-carat engagement ring, and will continue with a "Chic and glam meets Secret Garden"-themed reception. Each bridesmaid will be treated to custom necklaces and robes, while the groomsmen will enjoy a game of golf with their pro pal. The cocktail hour will include a 14-foot "wish tree" that's been filled with hanging cards of wishes for the bride and groom, a lounge area, twinkle-light topiary ball trees, a heart-shaped ice bar and string trio. Food will mix the groom's Asian heritage with the chef's French specialties and a bit of Southern Florida flair. The reception will feature custom crystal-draped centerpieces, a renowned wedding band, a Cirque du Soleil-style act during dinner and a four-course meal prepared by an award-winning celebrity chef. To top it all off, a custom ivory 5-tier wedding cake will be made by an award-winning pastry chef, according to the bride's secret family recipe for red velvet cake.

    Andrea and Glenn's 1940's-style wedding will be held atop a Los Angeles automotive museum against the backdrop of a New Year's Eve sunset. The couple, who first met online, have been engaged since Glenn flung open a lit-up jewelry box containing a 3-carat engagement ring and said, "Be my wife," during a dinner with Andrea's family. Fast forward to the big day, where Andrea, dressed in a Lazaro "mermaid" style beaded gown and "bird cage" style veil, will walk down an 80 foot red velvet aisle runner sprinkled with white rose petals and surrounded by lights, to meet her groom. The reception, inspired by the 1940's and the film "Somewhere in Time," will sparkle in splashes of gold, red and white, and will be dotted with crystals, calla lilies and crimson roses. A fabulous array of food stations and the couple's signature drink, "the goldfish," will delight the crowd. At the stroke of midnight, the couple will cut their cake and kiss against the backdrop of a Los Angeles skyline bursting with fireworks.moreless
  • Amy & Ryan
    Episode 22
    Amy and Ryan have chosen a "Bling Bling" theme for their wedding. Everything must sparkle, so that means diamonds and crystals everywhere! The couple has picked a private waterfront estate for their nuptials, which will be held in custom-designed tents with draped fabric and specialty lighting. The design alone comes with a $40,000 price tag and will take five days to build! The ring bearer will drive his way down the aisle in a mini Mercedes SL300 and after the couple makes their vows, guests will head to the diamond-themed reception, where even the ice cubes will be shaped like diamonds! Each table will be adorned with $1,000 centerpieces and white shag linens, and the room will be lined with a $40,000 floral budget. A $3,000 diamond-shaped martini luge and ice bar, photo booth and custom fireworks display will keep guests entertained. And just in case that's not enough bling, the dance floor will be wrapped in a diamond hologram pattern with glowing plexi-cubes hanging from above.moreless
  • Apple & Tony
    Episode 21
    Apple and Tony have chosen to get married in Las Vegas. To kick off the festivities, they've rented the Pole Position raceway for some pre-wedding entertainment.

Apple will walk down the aisle of her traditional Church ceremony dressed in a crystal-adorned gown. Afterwards, guests will head toward the cocktail hour at the Rio Hotel, which will be decked out with a red carpet, red flowers, wrought iron candelabras, red and white draped fabric with custom red and amber lighting and crystal chandeliers.

Afterwards, guests will head to the night-club at the Ritz-Carlton for the reception, where they will be greeted with a special signature drink - "smoking" berry champagne, created with dry ice. The room itself will be draped with soft white fabric and lighted with a deep plum blue color, all topped off with an illuminated ice bar and water fountain. The tablescapes include mirrored boxes filled with exotic flowers and candles creating a 3-D look, while the escort cards are hung from a sparkling wall dramatically lit with purple lighting.
