Billionaire Harry Macklowe has raised the bar for wedding gifts. Macklowe, a New York City real estate developer and investor, gave his bride-to-be, Patricia Landeau, the most over-the-top pre-wedding present this week when he projected an image of their faces onto the side of a Park Avenue skyscraper.

The massive gift was unveiled on Tuesday and Wednesday at the intersection of Park Avenue and East 56th Street, where onlookers could see a clear view of Macklowe and Landeau's faces stretched across the side of the building. According to Page Six, the elaborate 42-by-24-foot display is a photo by the famed Parisian firm Studio Harcourt.

"Our smiling faces will be on a building that I built — and I am proud of my wife, my life, my friends and colleagues," Macklowe told Page Six. “It gives me a great thrill” to “share this moment of joy and happiness.”

The couple tied the knot on March 7 in a stunning urban wedding ceremony at Weylin, a renovated event venue inside the former Williamsburg Savings Bank in Brooklyn. New York Supreme Court Justice Alan Scheinkman officiated the couple's ceremony. For the big day, the bride ditched the traditional white gown and wore a pink and orange tweed Chanel dress. According to Page Six, she completed her look with a monogrammed clutch and a Marc Kaufman coat, which reportedly could have costed up to $100,000.

The groom, meanwhile, donned a Brioni suit for the big day, adding a pink tie and socks to compliment his bride's ensemble.

Basically, husbands and boyfriends all need to take a hint from this guy.
