Need help to install front tire

Hello, as a newbie to this forum this is my first post and I'm looking for a little help. I just had the tube replaced on my front wheel and I can't figure out how to put it back on the bike - Devinci St. Tropez. The bike shop pumped up the tire for me but it is too fat to slip between the break pads. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Regards...

Deflating the tire seems most logical, but I'm wondering if there is another way...

You have to release the cable at the brake.
Open the brakes install the wheel then reattach the cable.

Some brakes have a release lever.
Some you have to squeeze and pull the cable out of the slot.
