Facebook Wedding: Brides Magazine Streams Crowdsourced Wedding On Social Media Site (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

There was nothing not to "like" at this couple's dream wedding.

Briana Hainley and Jason Schnitzer married Sunday in Brides magazine's first "Live Wedding," which was streamed live at 4 p.m. PST on the magazine's Facebook page. But that's not all -- every detail of the wedding, from the dress to tuxedos to the decor, was voted on by Facebook users and provided to the lucky couple for free.

Back in November 2012, couples applied for a chance to win a free Facebook-crowdsourced wedding; then, Facebook users voted for their favorite couple of three finalists. After Hainley and Schnitzer were chosen as the winners, voters determined the flowers, cake, first dance song and more by "liking" the options curated by Brides editors and posted on the Brides Live Wedding Facebook page.

Voters ultimately chose details including strapless pink bridesmaid dresses, a cake decorated with seashells and a glitzy fit-and-flare gown for the bride.

Brides magazine also donated $1 for every "like" to the the American Red Cross, Hainley and Schnitzer's favorite charity.

Watch the entire wedding, held at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, Calif., in the video above.

TheKnot.com held a similar live-streamed crowdsourced wedding in February, and earlier this month, the first couple to marry at a Las Vegas Denny's restaurant streamed their wedding on the Las Vegas Sun website.
