Get this: Madelaine Brockway and Jacob LaGrone just had the kind of wedding most can only dream of, and it's got everyone talking! On November 18th, this couple went all out, exchanging vows in a ceremony so extravagant, it's left the whole internet in a frenzy. Imagine the scene - glamour, luxury, and a price tag of a jaw-dropping $59 million. Yes, you read that right! Clips and snapshots from their over-the-top celebration are all over social media, making everyone ask: "Who on earth is Madelaine Brockway?"

Digging a bit deeper, we find that Madelaine rocks the entrepreneur world from Fort Worth, Texas, with a flair that's as impressive as her wedding. But she's not just any entrepreneur; she's a South Florida gem, thanks to her dad, Robert "Bob" Brockway, a big name in the car dealership game.

And what about the groom from the viral 59 million wedding of the century, Jacob LaGrone? He's a bit of a mystery, with an old LinkedIn profile as our only clue. It tells us he's a University of Mississippi alum with ties to the country music scene. But hey, when it comes to weddings like this, it's the love story that counts, right? And from the looks of it, Madelaine and Jacob have a blockbuster one.

Madelaine Brockway clearly doesn't do anything half-way, because her pre-wedding celebrations were just as over-the-top as you'd expect from someone dropping $59 mil on "I dos." First up, the bachelorette bash kicked off with a full week of fun at the ultra-exclusive Amangiri resort in Utah. And when we say exclusive, we mean it - this place charges an insane $3,150 per night just for a basic room!

The talented Rachel Birthistle from Lake Como Weddings planned the whole extravagant affair, along with floral designer Kiana Underwood bringing the wow factor with her Tulipina creations. These ladies really went all out, with each night having an elaborately themed soiree.

One minute it was "Pretty in Pink" with a poolside dinner fit for Reid Isometric characters. The next, it was giving "Aliens Among Us" with some kooky green decor. Then they hit us with a glamorous "Golden Hour" night. But get this - the grand finale was a full-on Marie Antoinette revival complete with opulent petticoats and powdered wigs! Naturally, every moment was painstakingly documented by a videographer, because what's a 59 million dollar wedding bachelorette party without a little vanity project to show off to the peasants?

Alright, grab your champagne and hold onto your hats, because we’re about to spill all the deets on the wedding venue!

A Night at the Opera

The celebrations kicked off with a grand welcome soirée at the iconic Opera Garnier in Paris. We’re talking Phantom of the Opera vibes with that lush, historic setting. And because nothing screams "low-key" like private jets, that's exactly how the guests were flown in. Wedding extraordinaire Rachel Birthistle and her team at Lake Como Weddings meticulously planned every opulent detail inspired by the Opera's regal art and decadent history.

The floral game was strong too, thanks to Kiana Underwood of Tulipina. While aiming for "opulence without excess", Kiana went all out with a gradient of floral vignettes along the stairs, from pink to peach to green to blue. But here's the real kicker - she ordered over 4,000 coral charm peonies! When we talk about the 59 million dollar wedding flowers you can’t expect less.

The Dreamy Chateau Wedding Scoop

For the main event, Madelaine and Jacob said their "I dos" at the breathtaking Chateau de Villette. This remarkable, historically landmarked chateau in France is basically a dream set for such an occasion. Leave it to them to get married at an actual royal venue because, of course, a regular ol' banquet hall just wouldn't cut it for a $59 mil affair!

The aisle was a dramatic, fountain-side spectacle with Madelaine gliding from the chateau doors to a platform floating right in the water. Her custom Dior haute couture dress and cathedral veil, both embroidered with her favorite lily of the valley blooms, made her look like a modern-day Marie Antoinette frolicking in the gardens of Versailles.

In keeping with the grandeur, the wedding planners constructed matching greenhouses on either side of the aisle, playing up the chateau's symmetrical garden architecture. For dinner, guests were ushered into a bespoke white greenhouse draped in the lily of the valley theme, from the embroidered napkins and menus down to Madelaine's bridal look.

But the highlight of the day was definitely the after-party setup - a black greenhouse transformed into a lush, romantic nightclub straight out of a fairy tale. The sunken marble dance floor was the centerpiece where the newlyweds shared their swoon-worthy first dance. And because nothing screams "money to burn" like a famous musical guest, Maroon 5 serenaded the couple with "She Will Be Loved."

Throughout the venues, you could see the bride's love for the Opera Garnier's iconic staircases shining through in the floral designs and complementary decor colors. The addition of hand-painted porcelain details by artisan Marie Daâge added a bespoke, centuries-old French touch that just oozed wealth and sophistication. When you're spending $59 million, we guess no detail is too small!
