Officiated by then-New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the wedding was the brainchild of Scott Parish of Thomas Prett Events. Likewise, Petals Floral & Party Design and Mark of Excellence Distinctive Catering handled the decor and food aspect respectively.
The guests in attendance included the likes of actor Kevin James, restauranter Ryan Gleason and the musician's daughter Alexa Ray, who gave an emotional speech.
Alexa is the result of Billy Joel's relationship with his second wife, Christie Brinkley(1985-1994). His first and third marriage with Elizabeth Weber Small(1973-1982) and Katie Lee(2004-2009) respectively, however, didn't bear any children.
Oddly enough, within months after tying the knot, Alexis and her husband welcomed their first child, a baby daughter named Della Rose Joel in August 2015. Two years onward, she gave birth to their second bundle of joy, yet another daughter named Remy Anne Joel.
Billy Joel's windfall net worth ensures that both Remy and Della grow into the life of excess.
