Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas Wedding – First Picture!

4 Jun

Facebook founding president Sean Parker and singer Alexandra Lenas wed in a $10 million ceremony in Big Sur, California on Saturday.
The event took place in front of 300 friends and family members and the theme was the ‘Game of Thrones’.

The bride, 24, wore a stunning medieval style dress by Elie Saab, while Parker, 33, the couple’s daughter Winter Victoria and the guests were dressed by Academy Award-winning costume designer for the Lord of the Rings movies, Ngila Dickson.

Builders worked for weeks leading up to the wedding creating backdrops including ponds, a gated cottage and a $600,000 stone gate. The temporary dance floor cost $350,000 and the flowers totaled $1 million. The ceremony and reception featured opulent decorations including a ruin, a waterfall and long feast style tables. According to one source, guests ‘entered down a long trail and came to a big gate and entered this other world in a forest there’.

Designer Ken Fulk, caterer Paula LeDuc and designer Preston Bailey, who designed the flowers, all helped coordinate the massive affair. Mark Seliger was the photographer and guests enjoyed cake from Perfect Endings as well as music by Loreena McKennitt and The Good The Bad and The Ginger.

The guest list included Sting and his wife Trudie, Allison Williams, Emma Watson, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Perry and Etty Farrell, Lucian Grainge and Jacqueline Laurita, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The couple met in late 2010 on the heels of Sean’s breakup with his long-term girlfriend, and Parker proposed to Lenas in February 2011. She gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Winter Victoria Parker in January this year.

Congratulations!!
