The three day affair began with cocktails and Hors d’oeuvre by the pool with a French Brazilian Jazz trio, playing everything from Bossa Nova to Miles Davis, and a video of the bride and groom doing their own rendition of the Sonny and Cher classic, “I Got You Babe.”

The following day, the wedding began as the guests watched the wedding party procession enter to classical renditions of The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows,” and The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.” The bride walked down the aisle to The Beatles classic, “All You Need Is Love.” Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple brought everyone to tears with his own rendition of “You Are So Beautiful.” As the bride and groom kissed, hummingbirds flew around the grounds in harmony.

The bridal party then headed to the famous desert windmills for photos with photographer, Michael Segal. The reception kicked off with an unforgettable first dance from Matt and Ace, to Billy Idol’s ‘White Wedding’ with Billy Idol’s guitarist, Steve Stevens looking on. The dance was choreographed by famed choreographer, Jennifer Hamilton. Chef Jeff Armstrong created the six-course sit down dinner, which included faro risotto, halibut, goat cheese truffle ravioli, and a massive dessert table with 300 cupcakes and other custom delights. As guests dined,  Aqua Lille’s synchronized swimmers performed in the pool.

The best man and matron of honor toasted the newlyweds with Belaire Rose Champagne. The party then headed to the Purple Palm for a set by DJ Morty. The bride and groom gave a heartfelt thank you to their guests, and a special poem was read to Ace written by Matt.  An all-star jam began with Rockstars Present, as Gilby Clarke, Duff McKagan, Steven Stevens, Glenn Hughes and Matt (on drums) took the stage. The bride looking ever so stunning in her wedding dress,  took over the vocals on the Led Zeppelin classic, ‘Rock n’ Roll’ and the Stones ‘Jumping Jack Flash.’ Juliette Lewis also stepped up to sing ‘Proud Mary,’ and Gina Gershon sang one as well.

The three day celebration concluded with a poolside buffet the next morning.
