Billionaire George Soros married education consultant Tamiko Bolton in an intimate ceremony on Saturday. The couple, who have been dating since 2008, exchanged their vows at Soros’ palatial Bedford estate surrounded by close friends and family.
The bride wore a dress designed by Reem Acra, whose gowns have been worn by Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez. After the ceremony, Soros and Bolton celebrated their nuptials at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts with more than 500 guests. Notable attendees included World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, Bono, and various foreign leader such as Hendrik Toomas Ilves, president of Estonia; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia; and Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania.
To kick off their wedding weekend, the couple held a reception for 300 guests at the Museum of Modern Art, where attendees were able to preview the new exhibition by Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte.
In lieu of gifts, the couple requested that donations be made to their favorite charities, including Global Witness, Harlem Children’s Zone, National Dance Institute, Planned Parenthood and the Roma Education Fund.
