Event designers will be transform the Ritz-Carlton into Westminster Abbey for the ceremony, Kensingston Gardens for the reception, and then Buckingham Palace when it comes time for dinner. As if that weren't enough, the details will be determined according to royal tradition, with a 17-piece orchestra, royal-themed menus, and an operatic soloist.
