The cake was decked out with mirrors and “bling.”

 

The bride created all the furnishings, including this crystal-filled table.

The Couple
Tiffany, a planner who has been featured regularly on Platinum Weddings, met John on an online dating site in 2009. They got engaged at the base of the Eiffel Tower and, Tiffany jokes, “I think I made him ask me five times.”

The Details
The ceremony took place in the Fontainebleau’s pool. Tiffany herself created a sparkling runway, along with a crystal staircase and a sweetheart table with loose crystals inside.

The Party
Fontainebleau chefs created food stations with fried chicken and crawfish étouffée to honor the groom’s Southern background and braised short ribs with polenta as a nod to the bride’s Manhattan roots.
