Founder and CEO of Vista Equity Partners Robert Smith married Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy’s 2010 Playmate of the Year on the Amalfi Coast in Italy over the weekend. The ceremony took place at the luxurious Hotel Villa Cimbrone.
The 30-year-old bride walked down the aisle wearing a custom made gown by designer Naeem Khan and a Faraone Mennella bespoke “Ice Princess” necklace featuring 140cts of Brazilian aquamarines and 10cts of diamonds with matching earrings, all hand crated in Italy in 18kt white gold.
Mr Smith and his seven groom’s men wore bespoke AMEDEO rings with cameos hand-carved into the likes of a King and his soldiers, set in 18kt gold and diamonds.
The lavish night also saw performances from Grammy winners John Legend and Seal.
John Legend performed For the First Time” while the couple walked to the altar and “All of Me” for the first dance in front of 250 guests under a huge lit up “Mr & Mrs Smith sign”.
