Napster's Sean Parker and singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas lavish Big Sur wedding took place amid towering redwoods in September 2013. This is one wedding we wish we had seen in person, the decorations are simply amazing and unlike many outdoor weddings that detract from the beauty of nature. This performance themed wedding shows the couples love for the forest and every detail of their wedding décor complements and enhances it!

 The lush forest was transformed with strewn flower petals and a beautiful flower bed along the path.

Guests relaxed on fur-pelt-strewn beds in the lounge area.

The wedding celebration was dedicated to the couples love of old-growth forests.

The celebration included Tolkien-ized costumes for all 364 guests by 'Lord of the Rings' costume designer Ngila Dickson.

The wooded site where the ceremony and reception was held cost Parker a whopping $4.5 million.

The delicious looking dessert table was lit with pillar candles and supported with elaborately carved tree stumps so it blended perfectly with the forest scene.

  1. the dress is very beautiful, but the bouquet should be in a slightly stronger color.

  2. Beautiful. If I weren't already married I like this dress.

  3. It is really been a great wedding. They organized things like a pro. I guess their wedding planning was strong and well executed. From the venue to the dress I like it all.
