Hollywood has had some pretty lavish nuptials this year, but Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas' over-the-top nuptials may take the, well, wedding cake.

For starters, the Big Sur ceremony, which took place on June 1, cost a whopping $4.5 million! And that's not including the $2.5 million fine from the California Coastal Commission.

But the jaw-dropping price isn't what really lands the forest celebration in the celebrity wedding hall of fame. From a 9-foot-tall wedding cake to the flower-adorned redwood trees, the Lord of the Rings theme was done to a level you have to see to believe.

Luckily the newlyweds shared their big day with Vanity Fair. Some of the exclusive pictures of the 364 guests include shots of A-listers such as Girls' Allison Williams and Sex and the City's Kyle MacLachlan all dressed in medieval attire—a requirement of attendance—by Lord of the Rings costume designer Ngila Dickson.

There's even a photo of Olivia Munn holding a white bunny. Why? We're not entirely sure.

After receiving criticism over tying the knot on a campground owned by the Ventana Inn & Spa, the Napster cofounder defended his earthy ceremony.

"Everything we did was an homage to nature, to the natural redwood environment which I call 'God's cathedral,'" he wrote in an email to The Atlantic.
