Sean Parker (33,) who used to be the president of Facebook and co-founded Napster, is showing the world exactly what insane tech mogul money can buy with his fantasy wedding.

The lavish nuptials occurred in June, but Vanity Fair just published the first photos of Sean’s wedding to Alexandra Lenas (24,) and they are mind-blowing. You will have to pick your jaw up from China, because it will fall through the earth. See them all here. The couple have a baby, Winter Victoria Parker, who was born this January.

Not only were the wedding party’s outfits designed by Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson, but each of the 364 guests had a specially made outfit. This was all put together by event planner Preston Bailey, and designer Kevin Fulk, who described it as “Citizen Kane meets Gatsby – like in its scale – but beautiful, not gross or overwhelming.”

The wedding cost $10 million, but Sean Parker could have probably spent more if he wanted to. His estimated net worth is $2 billion.

They received some backlash in the media for allegedly not having the proper permits to have the wedding on sensitive redwood forest land, but he has responded that the hotel was responsible for acquiring the right permits.

His friend John Perry Barlow tweeted in defense of the wedding “Forget what you heard about Sean Parker’s wedding,. It [was] elegant, tasteful, and magical. They have just been enormously generous to their friends. We are all very grateful.”

Among the guestswere Sting, Girls’ Allison Williams, Emma Watson, Lars Ulrich, and even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita, who is good friends with the family of the woman who officiated the wedding. Olivia Munn was also there with a bunny:

Aren’t you jealous? I’m a little jealous. Ok, ok, a lot.
