As the details continue to unfold, this wedding spectacular gets bigger and better at every turn.

    Kristel and Jason are passionate about sports and each other. He made a name for himself as a cornerback in the NFL, winning a Superbowl ring along the way. She's also on the run with a talent for women's track and field. The two were introduced by Kristel's coach who, in addition to playing cupid, also happens to be Jason's sister. When Jason popped the question, he did it up big, flying their closest friends and family to Vegas for a special proposal "surprise" party. The answer was "yes" and now Jason wants his platinum wedding to be even more memorable. Unable to decide between a traditional or contemporary setting, Kristel and Jason decided to do both, calling their theme "a modern vintage romance." Amid the elegant confines of the Westlake Village Inn in California's prestigious Westlake area, the $400,000 extravaganza will feature two totally separate and distinctive spaces. The ballroom will be done up in classic shades of cream, white, champagne and mauve, while the downstairs after-party will be sleek and chic, with accent colors of black and red. Kristel will dazzle on her wedding day in a $15,000 custom-made gown and $1 million in bridal bling by legendary jeweler Neil Lane. Between the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings, she'll be covered in more than one hundred carats in diamonds. The bride and groom are also making music a big part of their celebration. They've lined up everyone from jazz musicians to a gospel choir to keep their guests entertained all night long. Instead of traditional seating arrangements, a gourmet spread will be prepared at specially designed "feasting tables." After a mouthwatering dinner, the 150 guests will be treated to a private concert courtesy of famed neo-soul artist Dwele and dance the night away to the sounds of a celebrity deejay. For these two sports lovers and their guests, this unique platinum bash is sure to be a winner.moreless

    S 5 : Ep 20 -

    Eddie fell head over heels for Catherine when he spotted her at a party in their hometown of Houston four years ago, but she was leaving town for law school, and he was staying behind to become a resident surgeon. When Catherine returned to work in her family's restaurant business, they met up again and this time, she fell for him too. Now they're ready to walk down the aisle and they're pulling out all the stops. Catherine's family is shelling out over seven hundred thousand dollars to create an incredible garden atmosphere that Catherine and Eddie will never forget. One seventh of the budget, a hundred thousand dollars, is being spent on the flowers alone, to realize the couple's "fantasy land" theme. Since Catherine is Chinese and Eddie is Korean, they included unique Asian accents in the overall design. The ballroom will be softly lit by large canopies fringed with pink, red and lavender blooms to create a pastel paradise. The wedding and reception will be held in the same room, but will have two completely different looks, showcased by two separate color schemes. The guests will enter a ceremonial hall done up in pink tones. When they return after cocktails, they will find the ballroom transformed and all aglow in shades of lavender. On her wedding day, the Bride presents her bridal party with gifts of rose and amethyst jewelry. Her own jewelry of South Sea pearl earrings with diamond bows and a South Sea pearl necklace complement her ivory wedding dress perfectly. Catherine's parents helped her choose her romantic Lazaro designed gown. Catherine's mom has been instrumental in every step of the planning. But she has a big surprise: it's an impressive wedding cake created by a celebrity cake designer, and adorned with100 handcrafted sugar flowers. The evening ends in fairy tale style with Catherine and Eddie being swept away by a horse drawn carriage.moreless

    S 5 : Ep 19 -

    As soon as Jeff met Carrie, it was love at first sight. The couple soon realized they were made for each other. Seven years and two kids later, this couple is finally ready to say I do. So they're planning the fairytale wedding that Carrie has been dreaming about for years. They've designed a sumptuous wedding that harkens back to a more romantic and opulent time. The venue they chose in their hometown of Miami is an Italian-styled waterfront estate built in 1916. The Renaissance-inspired architecture and lush gardens provide a luxurious backdrop to their six hundred thousand dollar wedding. From the white and ivory tones in the decor and floral designs, to the gold and silver tablescapes, bride Carrie's vision is all about class, elegance and high-society sophistication. The bride has always wanted to be married under a canopy and the custom-made creation was designed with curly willow, moss, and an array of white flowers to capture the spirit of the surrounding gardens on the 180-acre estate. Carrie's stunning Bagley Mishka wedding gown is a dress made for a princess: a Chantilly lace strapless sheath with Swarovski crystals along the neckline. And the bride's Harry Winston jewelry really sparkles. From the four carat, D Color, internally flawless, micropave ring, to the two carat flawless earrings, the bride's jewelry alone comes in at four hundred thousand dollars! To top off her look, the princess in this fairytale gets her hair styled in a very traditional updo, but with a modern twist of long flowing loose ringlet curls. As the bride and groom exchange vows under the ethereal canopy, the groom has eyes only for his bride. After the outdoor wedding, the guests enjoy a cocktail hour inside the estate and then stroll out to the east terrace for a lavish seven course dinner under the stars. And then it's party time as the bridal couple and guests dance into the night.moreless

The two dated for three years, and she stands by her man in good times and bad. That's when he knew she was the one. Because the bride and groom will be honeymooning in the City of Light, their Christmas Day wedding will have a "Winter in Paris" theme and a price tag of $800,000. They hired one of the biggest party planners in Los Angeles to make sure this platinum event goes off without a hitch.

Illuminated tables and striking centerpieces complete the look with $100,000 spent on flowers alone. The bride's gown is full of shimmer and sparkle. It's made from the finest silk and is completely hand-beaded. A stunning veil and glittering tiara complete the look.

Before they say, "I do," he blows her away with two special gifts. Wearing a Louis Vuitton scarf as a blindfold, she is led into an exclusive auto dealership where she is surprised with a luxury car and a white fur coat to keep her warm on those chilly Parisian nights. On wedding day, the bride and groom arrive in style in a classic 1927 Packard. The Christmas day ceremony is especially touching.

    S 5 : Ep 17 -

    Frank and Charity met 12 years before they started dating, so when they finally decided to marry, their platinum wedding was a celebration of a love that was worth the wait! Charity is a hairstylist and Frank is a homebuilder in Sacramento, California. Although Frank loves extravagance and lives what he calls "the wow factor," the bride says her groom is both down to earth and generous. That's why when it comes to the "big day," Frank is sparing no expense on their lavish million dollar-plus wedding. Charity's unique sense of style is setting the tone and theme of their wedding. She's chosen a very chic, clean contemporary theme that she calls "modern elegance". The ballroom venue will be transformed into a "modern lounge with a funky vibe," using yards of ivory fabric, and specially created Manzanita centerpieces dripping in Swarovski crystals. But it's Charity's Vera Wang-inspired custom made dress that is the real focal point of the whole affair. She wanted a wedding gown that made a statement. She feels the one-of-a-kind creation is a true reflection of her personality: someone with a unique sense of style, who is edgy and very fashion forward. And to really accent her spectacular dress, Frank has bestowed his bride with an amazing array of diamonds and jewels. The eleven-carat diamond earrings and ninety-six carat diamond bracelets cost a cool million dollars! Charity's ring is platinum with an emerald cut center stone and baguettes, marquees and Pave with another eleven carats. As the wedding day begins, Frank sends over a gift for his bride, the keys to her dream car, a new luxury SUV. Their heartfelt touching ceremony takes place at Frank's family church. Next, it's off to the reception where the guests party in the sparkling modern lounge. And then the grand finale, a Vegas showgirl comes out to serve cake from a floating table! It caps off a platinum evening of elegance, fun and surprises.moreless
  • Ashleigh & Kristopher

    S 5 : Ep 16 -

    The bride has always loved all things pink and girly. The groom is obsessed with his 80's music. These two worlds collide at Ashleigh and Kristopher's California wedding, where Chantilly lace meets rock n' roll. The bride and groom-to-be live in Hawaii, so the mother of the bride hired Sacramento wedding planner Debra Michelle Hiebert to put all the parts together. And with Debra's help, Ashleigh's mom has cooked up a whole host of surprises for her daughter, including lighting elements and cake decorations inspired by the couple's tattoos. Ashleigh selected a traditional pearly pink wedding cake but unbeknownst to her, her Mother has ordered another cake with Ed Hardy-inspired black fondant that is decidedly un-girly from the same baker. Another one of Mom's surprises is a custom-designed "ice luge" engraved with the couple's monogram to serve their signature cocktails. It takes a large crew to transform a traditional country club into a chic black and white venue. But with the help of a creative wedding planner, hundreds of yards of fabric, and a unique floral design that includes a polka-dotted rose petal aisle treatment, the mission is accomplished. The table settings shine atop smoky quartz chargers with pale pink linens accented by an ultra-feminine black and white cameo gift box. Mom saves the biggest surprise for last. It's an explosive firework show choreographed to the couple's favorite music, and it blows the crowd away as the reception kicks into high gear, a perfect ending to another platinum event.moreless

    Rachel and CJ live in Chicago, where the weather can be unpredictable at best, so their dream wedding brings the outdoors IN, with a magnificent floral canopy that transforms a sophisticated ballroom into an enchanted garden. No challenge is too great for wedding designer Yanni and his team. They get to work creating an elaborate trellis to support the bride and groom's vision, which in the end will be covered with blossoms and candles.

Family and their cultural heritage are extremely important to this couple, and will be reflected in a middle-eastern inspired menu and the religious ceremony. The opulent ballroom decor is highlighted by an elaborate lighting plan to reflect all the colors of nature. Additionally, the mossy green and dark brown color theme for the table settings play up the elements of earth and wood. Even the wedding cakes are coordinated to match the color scheme. When Rachel and CJ see the completed ballroom in its entirety, they are moved to tears by the lush floral wonderland lit by the glow of hundreds of candles and enhanced by L.E.D. lighting.moreless

    S 5 : Ep 14 - 3/28/10

    Old-fashioned Hollywood glamour meets the pomp and circumstance of the military in this Central California wedding. Bride Jerrica and groom, Army Reservist Joe, fell in love over the movies, so when it came time to plan their wedding, they decided to combine their love of classic films with the pageantry of the armed forces. Then the bride found her wedding gown, and quickly realized that it was too grand for their first wedding site, so they moved the event to a larger church, so the gown would have a proper setting. One dress would not be enough for a silver-screen type celebration, so Jerrica assembled three wedding day looks, and a personal jewelry consultant helped her complete her ensembles with almost $150,000 worth of gems. To honor her groom's Asian heritage, one of the bride's outfits is an heirloom gown from his grandmother, to be worn during a traditional tea ceremony on their wedding day. Wardrobe isn't the only thing that comes in threes in this wedding. There will be three different cakes, as well. In addition to a massive six-tier high main cake, there will be a groom's cake, and an entire room filled with mini-cakes for the children who will be attending the wedding. The wedding planner pulls out all the stops, putting together a red carpet complete with paparazzi to make the guests feel like Hollywood royalty as they arrive. At the reception, lively entertainment and theatre-style seating will make every guest feel like they have a front row seat. The decor shines like a movie premiere with hundreds of flowers, ostrich plumes and crystal-draped candles highlighted by the regal dark blue colors that reflect the groom's military background.moreless

    Gabriela and Jason want an all-white sparkling event that will be intimate enough to allow them to express their love for each other, but posh enough to wow their friends and families. In order to achieve that, they have hired top-notch Beverly Hills wedding designers and planners to help them transform an exclusive Los Angeles area country club, frequented by sports and entertainment celebrities.

Wedding planner Terri Castillo even goes so far as to re-carpet the venue for the day at the cost of $5000. Their love of fast and exotic cars moves Jason to amaze his bride to be with a four-wheeled surprise... her choice of a Bentley or a Lamborgini to drive for the week of their wedding.

Although the bulk of the floral and other decor is white, there's one pop of stunning red roses. They are rich and radiant orbs that will float above the guests during the ceremony. Even the ice sculpture is created to stun the guests. Giant sparkling diamonds crafted from ice blocks will decorate the bar area, where the couple's signature cocktails are served with dry ice to achieve a frosty cool look. Sequin-covered tablecloths sparkle along with the Swarovski accented votive candles at each place setting where the guests are treated to a gourmet meal toped off with a delicious wedding cake that even impresses the bride who is a pasty chef.

    Only the finest will do for the daughter of a wealthy businessman. Sabrina has always dreamt of having a fairy-tale wedding similar to Princess Diana's, so from the moment she became engaged to Danish, she and her family began planning a royal event. They even hired a wedding planner who used to work for the royal family of Saudi Arabia, Kathy Jo Peterson. Also part of the team is Beverly Hills event planner Ricardo Luna, whose elegant floral designs are known throughout the world. In Sabrina and Danish's Indian culture, a wedding is not just a one-day event. Several days before the union, hundreds of their friends and family gather at a four-star hotel in L.A. to begin the celebration. First up is the "mehendi", a centuries-old tradition welcoming the bride's entry to womanhood with food, dancing, music and henna painting. Over 700 guests will be attending their wedding at a gorgeous ocean-side resort and Ricardo Luna has his work cut out decorating the outdoor ceremony area, as well as the magnificent ballroom where the reception will be held. Thousands of orange roses grace the columns and pillars throughout the property, and crystals and candles are added everywhere to add that special element of "bling." Sabrina's dress has a fifteen-foot train and is encrusted with crystals and pearls. But the most amazing thing the bride will be wearing is her wedding jewelry, which contains 55 carats of diamonds and 20 carats of pearls- all handmade for her by the family's private jeweler. Their wedding cake is worthy of a princess as well: it's designed like a "castle" with three towers, and stands over six feet tall! Decorated with gold frosting and edible crystals, it cost $20,000. The royal event includes a white Cinderella-style horse and carriage, which whisks the couple away from the ceremony to take their wedding photos at sunset, overlooking the ocean. All in all, a spectular platinum event!moreless
