The metaverse moon wedding was a huge hit with attendees, who each paid 50 euros for the experience.

“I wanted something special for Valentina, something that has never existed before,” explained Boateng. “Thanks to OVER, we can celebrate our love like no one has done before, in a space location.”

This wedding had a truly unique and creative approach. Wedding organizer Enzo Miccio helped the event come together into a success, sharing photos of the wedding on Instagram and explaining his process.

“Imagine putting together a slightly crazy wedding planner who loves challenges and Over the Reality (the decentralized platform for the AR metaverse) and 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.

The couple wanted to make their special day even more unique and had searched high and low for a space that would suit them. They eventually found the solution in the metaverse.

“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.”

The metaverse wedding was a spectacular event that brought together people from all over the world, including Miccio’s virtual avatar and the couple’s pet dogs.
