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