Alberto “Tico” Mugrabi’s highly anticipated wedding to fashion blogger Colby Jordan is finally here. According to Page Six, 600 guests are are currently on their way to the weekend bash at the ritzy Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France.

The wedding of the season stands to be a regular who’s who of the upper crust of New York City society. The tabloid lists art dealers Larry Gagosian and Tony Shafrazi, as well as billionaire real estate magnate and art collector Aby Rosen and his wife, Samantha Boardman, among those who will be in attendance. Other boldface names expected to make the journey include husband and wife John Theodoracopulos and Serena Boardman (a shipping heir and luxury real estate broker) and oil baron John Hess and wife Susan.

Reportedly, guests will enjoy a pre-wedding welcome dinner at Tetou, one of the French Riviera’s most high-end restaurants, as well as a number of festivities held at the hotel. Father of the groom, Jose Mugrabi, personally assured his guests that the affair will be the “safest place on the planet” with White House-level security, according to Page Six.

The Mugrabi family are among the world’s most active art collectors, and reportedly count 1,000 works by Andy Warhol among their holdings. Alberto has a reputation as the jet-setting party boy of the family.

Colby, the much younger woman who finally convinced him to settle down, has art collecting tendencies of her own, as revealed in a 2013 Teen Vogue profile. At the time a 20-year-old college student, Colby showed off her Takashi Murakami pillows, Sebastiaan Bremer photographs, and Darcel Disapoints prints, as well as her high-end shoes, handbags, and other accessories. The daughter of financier John W. “Jay” Jordan, Colby is known for her fashion blog, Minnie Muse.
