The usual suspects were present to celebrate Harry Macklowe and Patricia Landeau saying “I do,” as were two less likely guests: the bride’s former husbands.

Landeau’s first husband, photographer and collector Ronald Najar, toasted the couple alongside her second husband (and father of her four children) hedge funder Marc-Louis Landeau, according to the New York Post. Both former hubbies also brought their new spouses. Macklowe’s former wife of 57 years, Linda, was not present; their acrimonious divorce trial ended in December with divvying up their assets.

Macklowe and Landeau were married on Thursday and began their lavish celebration with the installation of a 42-by-24-foot portrait of themselves on the exterior of the groom’s 432 Park.

The ceremony took place at the old Williamsburgh Savings Bank in Brooklyn followed by lunch at Le Coucou and a 200-guest reception in the couple’s 432 Park pad on the 78th floor. The unit was gutted for the occasion so designer and event planner David Monn could create a grand ballroom for the party.

The guest list included a who’s who of real estate moguls with Richard and Karen Lefrak, Steven and Daryl Roth, Larry and Klara Silverstein and Stephen Ross all in attendance.

Other notable guests included private equity fund giant Leon Black and his wife Debra, venture capitalist Alan Patricof, billionaire Steve Cohen, former Sony president Mickey Schulhof and wife Paola, interior designer Muriel Brandolini and husband Nuno, art dealer Dominique Lévy, Hudson News owners Lisa and James Cohen, and socialites Susan Gutfreund and Jamee Gregory. Neighbor and hedge funder Israel Englander’s wife Caryl also reportedly made an appearance.
