 The pair wed at the exclusive Hotel Villa Cimbrone

“The drive to the secluded retreat has been called ‘daunting,’ so ‘helicopters had to fly in each piece of equipment, making over 100 trips back and forth to the five-star resort overlooking dizzying views,'” reports PageSix.

But judging by the Instagram photos, it appears the effort was worth it for the celebrity perfomances alone.

John Legend serenaded the bride down the aisle.

So who exactly is the couple behind the lavish wedding weekend?

Robert F. Smith, 52, is the founder of Vista Equity Partners, “a firm with $8 billion under management that deals exclusively in the unglamorous business of enterprise software,” according to the New York Times.

“Much of Vista’s success can be traced to the unconventional tactics of its hands-on chief executive, Robert F. Smith, who has delivered investors a staggering 31 percent average annual rate of return since co-founding Vista in 2000,” the NYT wrote in a 2014 profile on Smith, which detailed his unique rise to becoming one of the “75 Most Powerfu Blacks on Wall Street.”

Robert Smith30-year-old Dworaczyk, meanwhile, is the host and co-producer for “Inside Fashion” for the E! channel in Canada and appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011.
