excelsior-hearst dubrovnik weeding

Over four hundred most powerful and influential people in the world will come to Dubrovnik on the 4th of June. They will attend a weeding of Fabiola Beracasa and Jason Beckman, which will be held in the luxury hotel Excelsior. During the four days long celebration newlyweds, granddaughter of the media mogul William Randolph Hearst and an investment banker, promised to offer “the best the Croatia has” to their guests.

In spirit of that promise, hundreds of bottles of wines, such as: Dom Perignon, Peljesacki Plavac and Miraval Rose, were delivered to Dubrovnik’s hotel over the past few days. Hosts of the Hearst dynasty also ordered around 120 kilograms of caviar and other delicacies originating from all over the Croatia.

During the four-day wedding the hotel will be closed for public. Only guests and strictly selected personnel would be allowed in.

The guests will arrive on private planes, and they will eat the food cooked by the best Croatian chefs.

The wedding of the century, as many call it, will cost millions of American dollars. A single night at the Dubrovnik hotel will cost between 300 and 600 euros per guest. The whole event is going to be covered by American Vogue, in a ten pages long reportage.

Fabiola Beracasa is a 38 years old daughter of Victoria Hearst, third wife of the billionaire Randy Hearst. Fabiola was born in Venezuelan Caracas, where she spent early childhood with her mother and father. When her father died she continued living with her mother and media mogul Hearst, in whose house she met her husband to be.

Fabia and Jason got engaged in 2010. Her family, the Hearsts, is the most known but also most flagrant American billionaire family. Her grandfather, William Randolph Hearst, is attributed with the formation of the “yellow press”. He was the creator of many iconic media including Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Elle, The Oprah Magazine and over 29 television channels. Great Orson Wells described his life in the film “Citizen Kane”.
