We all dream our wedding will be an absolute fairy tale, but Sean Parker, inspired by a love of old growth forests/ the Lord of the Rings / Game of Thrones , has made it happen for his big day.

Sean Parker Wedding

Sean Parker (Founder of Napster and Facebook millionaire) married singer songwriter Alexandra Lenas in a gorgeous and completely lavish ceremony in Old Sur, California under 500 year old towering redwoods.

Photographed by Christian Oth and Mark Seliger,  Dedicated to their love of old-growth forests, the celebration—which included Tolkien-ized costumes for all 364 guests by Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson—cost Parker $4.5 million for the wooded site alone.

(Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, though invited, sent regrets.)




The amazing  wedding cake had six tiers and was nine foot tall!
