Vanity Fair published exclusive photos from social-media baron Sean Parker (á la Napster and Facebook) and singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas’ recent wedding. The couple exchanged their vows surrounded by majestic 500 year-old redwoods and Tolkien-esque costumed celebrities (created by Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson).
We see a lot of weddings everyday, but this one is definitely one you have to see to believe. Photographed by Christian Oth and Mark Seliger, the grandiose nuptials are both surreal and earthy. The atmosphere is straight from a scene in a storybook. Epic does not even begin to describe the ambiance. I’m having some serious photo-envy right now.
So, would this be what it would look like if JRR Tolkien were a modern-day wedding planner?
Side note: For those accusing Parker of destroying National Forrest – that is the entire picture, please pardon the pun. Parker responds, stating that he took the privately owned land that was covered with asphalt and park benches and returned it back to nature. They did not cut down any trees. All the structures and non-indigenous potted plants were made to be easily removed after the wedding to minimize disruption to the topsoil and environment.
