After a quick legal ceremony at the registry office, in which Erica wore a flirty white skirt and jacket with a bunch of white peonies. In the afternoon Erica changed into a $100,000 Christian Dior white strapless gown for a ceremony in front of all the guests (rumoured to be a Scientology ceremony) The couple wed under a flower trimmed canopy which displayed white floral lanterns. Afterwards a reception continued in the hotel to the sounds of jazz. As night fell trees lit up with fairy lights, candles and lilies floated in the hotel pool and the reception was bathed in a wash of pink light. The reception continued past midnight.
