Social Media Entrepreneur Sean Parker Marries
Napster founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker was married to his longtime love, singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas, in a ceremony at The Ventana Inn in Big Sur, California on June 1, according to People.
Rumors circulating in the days before the nuptials stated that Parker and Lenas would wed in an extravagantly crafted, woodland-inspired ceremony, speculations which did not disappoint as apparently the construction of man-made ponds, cottages, and stone gates for the big day reportedly ended up costing the groom around $9 million, a worthy expense for the entrepreneur whose net-worth is estimated at $2 billion.
Ngila Dickson, an Academy Award winning costumer designer, dressed all the guests along with the couple’s daughter, Winter Victoria, while the bride opted for a dramatic Elie Saab gown. The 300 guests dined on food catered by Paula LeDuc and cake from Perfect Endings amidst floral arrangements from designer Preston Bailey, lending a romantic air far more reminiscent of a fairy tale than the technological dramas of The Social Network—although a little Justin Timberlake wouldn’t have hurt the ceremony.
