The billionaire daughter donned a custom ivory long-sleeve A-line Vera Wang Haute gown.
The dress which had hand appliqué French macrame lace on the bodice and sleeves was designed such that it flowed onto light ivory and champagne Italian tulle skirt.
While the cost of the dress remains unknown, a trip to the official website of the luxury brand shows that the starting price - depending on the bridal collection - is between $2,900 (N1.1 million) and $6,900 (N2.8 million).
A response under their Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about their price reads:
"New designs are introduced twice a year in two distinct bridal segments: Vera Wang Collection and Luxe Collection. The starting price for Vera Wang Bridal Collection is $2,900. The Luxe Collection starts at $6,900 and allows for more customization options."
Hence it goes without saying that Jennifer's dress cost a fortune!
The groom, on the other hand, looked dapper in a classic Armani tux with a Lily of the Valley boutonniere pinned to his lapel.

Trendy wedding dresses
When it comes to fashion, sometimes normal and conventional can be pretty boring. This explains why a lot of people often love to go extra with their looks.
Most ladies when preparing for their white wedding ceremony prefer to go for modest looks.
However, there are those who break the rules - in style.
While it is common to see brides keep their legs hidden beneath ball gowns and mermaid dresses, there are those who would rather flaunt them.
