Preston Bailey's Wedding Details

Posted by

When you are an event designer like Preston Bailey (who has done the weddings of  Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas), what do you do when its time to plan your own wedding? Wednesday night at the stroke of midnight we got to find out. Preston, with the help of his close friend and celebrity party planner Marcy Blum, entertained his friends and family with a festive celebration in true New York City style at the Empire State Building. Their close friend Joan Rivers officiated the ceremony, and the evening was filled with surprises. The ceremony opened with Preston's groom Theo singing and Preston made his entrance by stepping out from inside a floor-to-ceiling “bride” in a tulle gown made by Reem Acra. During the reception, a giant King Kong made from hundreds of flowers decorated the space where musicians played and guests posed for photos.

Preston and Theo chose these special people to help them on their special day:
