Mae Murray and the self styled "Prince" David Mdivani's wedding reception was held at the Ambassador Hotel on the 26th of June 1926. Pola Negri (far left) was the Maid of Honour, and Rudolph Valentino (far right) was the host. He lived at the hotel at the time and died a few months after this photo was taken. David Mdivani later became Mae's manager and his brother, Serge, married Pola Negri in 1927. His other brother, Alexis, married Barbara Hutton, so there are three lads who did well for themselves.
Jean Harlow and Paul Bern's wedding reception. Jean does the honours, flanked by Irving Thalberg and his wife Norma Shearer (who seems to be hogging the photo), while the groom hides behind the cake

Carole Lombard and Russ Columbo. Columbo was a crooner, violinist and actor and reportedly the love of Carole's life. He was killed when his best friend, Lansing Brown, accidentally shot him in the eye. Ooops. Here's one of his songs set to lovely photos of Carole.
