We half-expected a unicorn to come flying out of this wedding portrait.

Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas's wedding was not intended as a themed affair, but a portrait of the newlyweds includes a wonderfully whimsical element from the nuptials.

Parker and Lenas tied the knot before a crowd of 300 at The Ventana Inn in Big Sur, California. Guests included Allison Williams, Emma Watson, Sting, and wait for it, Cory Booker. In addition to the Mayor of Newark, another Jersey celebrity was in the house to witness the ceremony: Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Lauria shared images via Twitter on Sunday expressing, "Words can not even describe how beautiful the wedding I went to yesterday was." Laurita added the affair, which reportedly cost a whopping $9 million, was "nothing like" she had ever seen. "I felt like I was in a fairy [tale]."

The photo released by the couple shows Lenas in an elaborate champagne-hued Elie Saab gown, and Parker in a dark, textured coat surrounded by a mist-filled forest of giant trees, moss and pockets of sunlight. The outfits were selected by "Lord of the Rings" trilogy costume designer Ngila Dickson. Themed or not, it all seems very Game of Thrones to us. Sans the slaughter.

Lenas is a singer and songwriter based in New York City. Parker, the co-founder of Napster whose role as an early Facebook advisor sparked Justin Timberlake to play him in The Social Network, is worth $2 billion.
