The wedding was the first to occur within the metaverse, and wedding organizer Enzo Miccio was responsible for its success. He shared photos of the event on Instagram and explained his process.
“Imagine putting together a slightly crazy wedding planner who loves challenges and Over the Reality. Also the love that unites two people such as soccer star Kevin-Prince Boateng and Valentina Fradegrada – famous influencer, entrepreneur, DJ, and five-time Wushu Kung Fu champion,” he said.
Miccio revealed that the newlyweds wanted to be able to marry where no one had done so before, and the metaverse presented a solution.
“The collaboration between us and OVER has given life to a personalized location created entirely with 3D technology,” said the organizer. “The couple, however, also wanted their fans to participate in their wedding. And so it will be. In fact, all participants will be able to access it through an exclusive NFT.”
