Extravagant Celebrity Weddings
1.Serena Williams And Alexis Ohanian
Reddit co-founder and tennis superstar Serena Williams tied the knot in New Orleans. The couple’s ceremony was modeled in a nontraditional manner and guests were positioned by lounges on the aisle. The wedding setup looked like a runway. Williams had multiple outfit changes and even donned some glitzy custom-made bejeweled Nikes. The pair’s daughter was also present at the ceremony. Towards the end of the evening, the groom surprised his bride with an illuminated carousel that all the guests took turns riding. It must have been a good investment for Ohanian.
2.Elton John And David Furnish
Longtime lovers, Elton John and David Furnish have been in a civil partnership since 2005. When Britain finally gave the go-signal to legalize same-sex marriage in 2014, the couple held a formal matrimonial celebration. There were around 600 people in attendance, an estimated amount of $10,000 worth of food, huge red rose floral arrangements, $10,000 worth of caviar, and $120,000 worth of vintage pink champagne. The pair were able to cut cost on the venue by holding the special ceremony at their own property. It seems like they were able to get a hold on a good financial adviser.
3.Sofia Vergara And Joe Manganiello
In 2015, Hollywood stars Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello held their wedding ceremony in a swanky venue in Palm Beach. The fancy nuptial was covered in lush white blooms while the reception was surrounded with touches of red. Vergara wore a strapless couture ball gown that was custom-made just for her. That evening, the bride made an outfit change wearing a short dress for the dancing festivities. International recording artist Pitbull was also there to perform. Being the cake lover that she is, Vergara ordered a tall Sylvia Weinstock cake with a series of other smaller cakes to go along with it. The cake was so high that the couple could have had some roof repair done after the festivities.
4.Kanye West And Kim Kardashian
In 2014, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian held a lavish wedding ceremony to usher in their married life in Florence, Italy. The wedding was said to be as grand as the power couple themselves. Mother-daughter duo, Kim Kardashian and North West, both had matching Givenchy dresses on with North being the flower girl. Musical icon Andrea Bocelli was there singing at the impressive ceremony. You can call your financial adviser and ask how much it took to hire Mr. Bocelli. The couple also rented out the Forte di Belvedere. To top it all off, the pair spared no expense with the drinks, flowers, and food. This also included the famous flower fall featured in a popular Instagram post. With all the publicity and scrutiny Kanye has received prior to the wedding, it’s possible that his most valued was also in attendance as well.
5.Michael Phelps And Nicole Johnson
The couple actually had three wedding ceremonies: a low-key backyard ceremony in Arizona in June 2016, a beach wedding in Mexico in October 2016, and a luxurious New Year’s Eve event in Phoenix that had a lot of art-deco details. For the two events, Johnson had two beautiful and unique dresses that were custom-made for her by designer, Julio Vino. The third ceremony was at Waldorf Astoria Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix and had a black and gold theme. There was a massive six-tier cake that had the couple’s monogram etched on it. Planning this couple’s wedding may have involved the services of a moving company.
6.Nicole Richie And Joel Madden
Former reality TV star Nicole Richie once mentioned that she wished to have elephants at her own wedding and that is exactly what she had at her wedding reception with rock star husband Joel Madden back in 2010. The bride wore a fabulous Marchesa dress that retails for $20,000 and also had two other outfits laid out for the special occasion. The event was held at Lionel Richie’s Beverly Hills investment property and the fancy meals and post-reception party made guests dance all night long.
