Powering a Wedding

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!

  1. I got this press release too.

    The guest list was, erm, a collection of people I’d never heard of:

    “Attendees coming from all over the world (France, Brazil, Spain, Colombia, Nicaragua, Peru, Honduras, Ecuador, Italy, Israel and England) included: Mr. Bert Jacobs (Owner, Life is Good), Mr. And Mrs. James Curleigh (President, Levi’s), Mr. Kweku Mandela, Ms. Eva Hughes (CEO, Condé Nast Latin America), Mr. And Mrs. Tim Lopez (Singer, Plain White T’s), Mr. Ben Patton, Mr. And Mrs. Angela Arabov (Founder, Jacob & Company), Mr. And Mrs. Jim Regusci (Owners, Regusci Winery), Dionisio Velez (Mayor of Cartagena), Mrs. Amber Kelleher-Andrews (CEO, Kelleher International), Mario Cader-Frech (Senior Vice President public affairs & CSR, MTV), Ms. Carlota Álvarez (Owner, Vega Sicilia Wine), Mr. Juan Suárez (Owner, Suarez & Sons), Yfke Sturm (Super Model), Angelica Fuentes (Shareholder, Grupo Omnilife-Angelissima-Chivas), Mr. Hunter Christoph (Owner, RCI Marine Group), Mr. And Mrs. Alejandro Viel (Owners, Casablanca Polo), Tony Tijerino (President, Hispanic Heritage Foundation) , Mr. Dan Ragone (Publisher, Maxim Magazine), Mr. Leonardo Davalos (Publisher & Editor in Chief, Complot Magazine) and Mr. Pedro Maal (Creative Director, Complot Magazine).”

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
