Publicity seeking duo share details of their wedding – prepare to be amused at the bizarre details of their ridiculously over-the-top nuptials
New York based Norah Lawlor is undoubtedly a talented PR and her ability to create something out of nothing is a quality that we at The Steeple Times admire. The stories that one or two of her clients wish to put out, such as that of a Texan teenager who had a £1.4 million 15th birthday party, however, undoubtedly rightly attract comments of shock and disgust and yesterday, something similar popped into our inbox of equal ridiculousness.
In the missive, the nuptials of a self-described “Power Couple” named Ashley Taylor Cooper and Ernesto Argüello, whose marriage occurred at New York’s St Patrick’s Cathedral with a reception and wedding dinner at the Plaza Hotel on Saturday 15th October, are described in detail. As well as sending “every guest a briefcase with a [bizarre Danielle Steele-esque] video message [filmed in Colombia]”, the pair listed their international guest list of 400 names and communicated that they had used “Beyoncé’s sought after florist”, a celebrity cake-maker and a 10 year old “Instagram star” named Vivian Hicks.
The couple, who are described as co-founders of Snap2Live, will honeymoon in Iceland, Finland, Spain, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Australia and Fiji. Do keep up!

Has April Fool’s Day come early?
Good for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone likes a good party and they well and truly went for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I must say I think they should have kept it private. What is the need to share this information with the media?
Live and Let Live
We need colourful characters
Having said that it works two ways..
And you make some fun and valid points abt this self masticating social media age.
Phew. A day in the life of the super rich.
all that travelling no time to Bonk..!!1
Tacky, tacky, tacky as my Texan friend used to say.
From the Daily Mail: Not so much of a “power” after all:
Ernesto filed ‘Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2012, listing $1,555 in assets and a $4.1M in liabilities, claiming he had just $5 on him at the time.’
He is also reported to have listed ‘$60,000 in outstanding student loan debt.’
The documents also outline that Ernesto was unemployed at the time he filed, living on $2000 from family that left him with just $20 to spend a month.
Did everyone watch the video message? Over the top romanticism but secretly we’d all want that kind of love!
