Getting hitched: Sean Parker, the founding president of Facebook, is marrying singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas this summer
Parker is marrying Alexandra, a singer and songwriter with whom he has a two-month-old daughter, Winter Victoria, after a two-year engagement.He had reportedly hired a landscaping company to build fake ruins, waterfalls, bridges and a gated cottage in the surrounding woods at Ventana Inn in Big Sur, California.And the wedding was meant to be no holds barred as the price tag for plants and flowers is believed to be $1 million, while a $350,000 dance floor is also being built.
Brace yourselves: One observer said the wedding could turn into a 'Game of Thrones' fantasy re-enactment
The construction, however, appears to have drawn the ire of California Coastal Comission.“We have opened a code enforcement investigation on Ventana Inn,” Monterey County planning director Mike Novo told the Pine Cone.Neither the Ventana or Parker or his people have applied for permits, Novo said. One of the wedding’s contractors told county officials everything would be torn down after the wedding.Associate county planner Joseph Sidor said the state coastal commission is investigating as well.Parker, the founder of Napster, has hired “Lord of the Rings” costume designer Ngila Dickson to create outfits for the guests, he said on Facebook.
The New York Post reported that the save-the-date cards for the June 1 wedding look like wizard scrolls.
However, this week, a source told MailOnline that because of a string of leaks, the couple arenow 'strongly considering an alternate plan which would happen at a different location in pebble beach'.And the source added today: 'Sean is considering various options.'
