It looks like we weren't the only ones covering Marissa Mayers' wedding yesterday: Google's cyborg polar fairy tried to give Vogue the exclusive on her hugely extravagant San Francisco nuptials, which were even more grandiose than we'd been told.
The Google vice president's three-day wedding was anchored at the San Francisco Four Seasons, where she lives, and involved command performances by the rock band The Killers and renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, as we reported yesterday. Vogue, eagerly fed event details by fashion-obsessed Mayer, adds the detail that the actual ceremony took place on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay, and was followed by a custom fireworks display.
Vongerichten prepared lobster and beef tenderloin, Vogue adds, followed by cake from New York baker Ron Ben-Israel, making the wedding feast something of a shut out for all those Michelin-starred local chefs. As for the clothes:
- Wedding dress by Naeem Khan, who did Michelle Obama's first state dinner dress and has outfitted Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé for events. Vogue said the dress included "a bodice crocheted and embroidered in snowflake lace" and was paired with "a floor-length bridal coat."
- Veil by Carolina Herrera.
- Shoes: Mary Jane by Stuart Wietzman "with a blue crystal design on the instep."
- Groom Zach Bogue wore a Broni tux and a "somewhat funky" shirt from Etro.
- Bridesmaids were in jewel-tone dresses from Reem Acra.'
- Mayer's ivory "going-away number" was based on something Jackie Kennedy wore when touring India.
So just your typical three-day wedding with fireworks, The Killers, Jean-George catering and a spread in Vogue. The pictures, we'd wager, will be forthcoming in Vogue's print edition. But someone must have some casual snaps in the meantime, not to mention more information about that singing toast from Google exec Craig Silverstein. Data to firstname.lastname@example.org.
