When a Couple of Texans Win a Million-Dollar Wedding…

Love is in the air— the sweet, southern California air of Monarch Beach. That’s where a couple of Texans tied the knot over the weekend in a super glam, celebrity-style wedding, all courtesy of BRIDES. The whole event was broadcast LIVE, hosted by yours truly and The Insider’s Keltie Knight.

A series of webisodes prior to the big day followed three couples vying to win this million-dollar wedding. It was all up to the voters— who chose the lovely Valentina Tran and Eric Vergati. Valentina and Eric didn’t do an ounce of the planning. Every detail, from the gown to the décor, was up to America. Talk about trust, right?! 

Planner extraordinaire Brooke Keegan teamed up with Sunny Ravanbach of White Lilac Inc to turn the voters’ vision into a lavish reality at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. Valentina and Eric are such a lovely, sweet and enthusiastic couple— which is evident in every photo! You can see a glimpse of the beauty below via Getty Images or watch the wedding here. Brides-to-Be, get your Pinterest boards ready!
