Spotify CEO gets married in a stunning ceremony on Lake Como

September 5, 2016

Daniel Ek, Spotify CEO, chose the beautiful Italy for its wedding and got married last week on Lake Como, in a stunning ceremony that made the mass media buzz on an international level.

According to the news, the 33-year-old multimillionaire is at his second marriage. He and his long-term partner Sofia Levander, mother of his two children, tied the knot in a spectacular ceremony in the beautiful frame of Lake Como, one of the most luxurious places on Earth.

The wedding and subsequent party counted many celebrities, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg with wife Priscilla Chan, and Bruno Mars - who was the night’s wedding singer - while the ceremony was performed by comedian Chris Rock. Also, the guests included BrewPR’s Brooke Hammerling and Swedish explorer Johan Ernst Nilson.

"We're at Lake Como in Northern Italy to celebrate the wedding of our good friends, Sofia and Daniel Ek," Zuckerberg wrote. "Many people know Daniel as one of the great European entrepreneurs --- the founder of Spotify. I know him as a great friend and dedicated father."

As part of the celebration, donations were being collected for the charity Pencils of Promise, which builds school in under privileged countries like Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos. The total amount of donations raised was over 7000 dollars.

The stunning area of Lake Como and its surroundings and, more in general, Italy, are often the perfect destination for many celebrity couples, who choose the most expensive villas in the loveliest spots on Earth.
