WEDDING FAB: Nene Leakes & Cynthia Bailey ATTEND Preston Bailey's KING KONG-Themed CEREMONY
"RHOA" stars Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey were among the celebrity guests at the King Kong-themed wedding of famed celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey to Theo Bleckmann. See pics from the nuptials inside....
On Valentine's Day at midnight, famed celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey married his partner of seven years, Theo Bleckmann in a King Kong-themed ceremony. So where does the "King Kong" part come into the story? Well....Preston and Theo got married on the top floor of the Empire State Building! Preston told People, "We love the imagery of the films but King Kong has a tragic ending. We wanted to create a happy ending."
Once the couples' celebrities guests reached the top of the building, they were led down a hallway, set up like an art gallery, featuring personal photos of their own weddings.
Then, according to People,
"...guests saw a 12-ft.-tall sculpture of a bridal gown that had been custom created by designer and guest Reem Acra. What looked to be Bailey dressed as a "bride" was in fact a body double – as evidenced when Bailey himself emerged from inside the sculpture, wearing a custom Reem Acra tuxedo. "It was important to us to create very strong memorable moments that mean something," says Bailey."
And the ceremony itself was conducted by Joan Rivers (who got ordained online for the occasion!). After the ceremony, guests partied until 6am to the sounds of Starlight Orchestras.
The very rich "RHOA" star Nene Leakes was among the guests. It's interesting to note how "rich" Nene truly is since she is having her upcoming nuptials to Gregg Leakes planned my Preston! Now.....we assume Bravo will be footing the bill but Nene will still have the bragging rights of joining the ranks of celebs like Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart who've all worked with Preston.
Nene's bestie and fellow "RHOA" star Cynthia Bailey was also there.
Nene and Cynthia were joined by "LAHH ATL" producer Carlos King andNeNe's hubby to be twice over Gregg Leakes at the fab wedding.
