Raphael De Niro, actor Robert De Niro's son, married Claudine Dominique DeMatos at a private residence in Nassau, Bahamas on Saturday.
Guests included Ron Burkle, who flew in on a private jet, the groom's mother, actress Diahnne Abbott-Copeland (Before Night Falls, Taxi Driver), Richie Achiva, owner of Butter and 1 Oak lounges in New York, and actor Harvey Keitel, according to a source at the wedding.
A Bahamian band played and DJ Jus Ske, fresh off Madonna’s Oscar bash, provided dance music. Lobster and steak were served. Dad Robert De Niro spoke briefly. Rolled cigars were handed out to guests. And fireworks lit the sky.
"It had rained earlier,” said a guest, “but that stopped in time. It was a great party with a bonfire on the beach until 4:00 a.m.”
