Facebook's Sean Parker

Pays Millions Over

Environmentally Unfriendly Wedding

breaking news

0603_sean_parker_getty_articleSean Parker's massive $10 million wedding was a MENACE to sensitive fish and plants in Big Sur ... and he NEVER got proper permits for any of it ... so claims wildlife officials who have settled with the Facebook billionaire for $2.5 million.

Parker struck the agreement with the California Coastal Commission after agents were tipped that he built a wedding site the size of a massive movie set in an ecologically sensitive area -- cabins, dance floor, staircases, waterfalls -- all without permits.

By the time coastal officials investigated, the structures had already been built ... but they let the wedding go on as scheduled. The 33-year-old Parker tied the knot Saturday with singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas.

After the shindig, the commission had the structures taken down with no damage to the area ... they also said Parker was super cooperative.

So what's cooler than $10 million for a wedding? $2.5 million for coastal conservation programs.

Apparently you can't go to a national park and build whatever you want on it.

What a jack ass. He knew damn well he needed the permits and probably would be denied. So he just does what he wants and the pays the fines later.. they should have fined him, charged him and made him pay to have the structures removed. But nope.. arrogant ass wipe with money gets his way again ... doesn't care if he broke the laws , he can afford it. SMH

I probably spent $2500 on everything for my wedding. I even bought a dress for cheap because it was discontinued. I've been married almost 20 years, I give these $10 million weddings 5 years tops since they seem to only go for the show and not loyalty and love.

So the lesson here is that if you have enough money, you can do anything you want?? That's b.s. that they let the wedding go on!! He should have been out the money he put into it, with no wedding venue last minute, and had to pay that fine!

These idiots should NEVER spent a fortune on these ridiculous "look at how rich I am" weddings ... after all, in a year or two, they will be needing every cent they have for divorce attorneys and alimony.
