Sean Parker and his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Lenas, whom he proposed to in February, have finally said their "I dos." The internet mogul, who made billions as Napster's co-founder and Facebook's early adviser, got married on Saturday, June 1, "celebrating with 300 family and friends in a romantic, magical setting," his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The wedding was held at The Ventana Inn in Big Sur, Calif. and officiated by Rev. John A. Buehrens. The bride donned a gown by Elie Saab, while the groom wore an outfit specially created for the nuptials by Academy Award-winning costume designer Ngila Dickson. Their 4-month-old daughter Winter Victoria, and their guests were dressed by the designer as well.

The nuptials reportedly cost around $9 million, becoming one of Silicon Valley's most expensive wedding. A landscaping company was hired to build fake ruins, waterfalls and bridges to provide a backdrop equivalent of a movie set. Rumor has it, the stone gate alone cost $600,000. Meanwhile, the dance floor cost $350,000 and the bill for flowers and plants totaled $1 million.

Although Parker tapped "Lord of the Rings" costume designer to take charge of the wardrobe department, he dismissed rumor that costumes for the guests would have medieval theme. He previously tweeted, "Sorry to disappoint, but the wardrobe we’re giving guests is essentially modern. No swords or chain mail. ... This is not a 'theme' wedding."

Parker's role in the beginning of Facebook was highlighted in "The Social Network", which chronicled the making of the now hugely-popular social media. He was played by Justin Timberlake, but was not too happy with how he was portrayed in the film.
