The INSIDER Summary:

  • Sophie Lasry and Alexander Swieca both have billionaire parents.
  • They got married on August 6 at Cipriani Wall Street, a New York City landmark.
  • The star-studded guest list included Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod, and the Clintons.

Sophie Lasry and Alexander Swieca both have hedge fund-founding billionaire parents. It’s only fitting, then, that their lavish wedding on August 6 took place on Wall Street.

Attended by Jennifer Lopez, A-Rod, and the Clintons, who are longtime friends of the Lasry family, the celebration featured a chandelier of flowers over the wedding canopy, and an equally floral photo booth. 

Here’s what it was like inside.

Sophie Lasry and Alexander Swieca are both children of billionaires.

Lasry's father is Avenue Capital Group founder Marc Lasry, worth $US1.59 billion. Swieca is the son of Henry Swieca, the founder of Talpion Fund Management with a $US1.73 billion fortune.

Their wedding took place at Cipriani Wall Street, a New York City landmark that once housed the New York Stock Exchange, as well as the headquarters of the National City Bank.

In addition to the traditional chuppah (wedding canopy), a chandelier of flowers cascaded down from the ceiling.

After their vows, they hit the dance floor.

The lavish affair had a star-studded guest list. Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod made an appearance.

Former President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, longtime friends of the Lasrys, also attended.

They even posed for pictures with other guests.

A photo booth with a backdrop of flowers provided more photo opportunities.

True to the New York setting, the newlyweds' getaway car was a vintage taxi.
