Caviar, Kobe burgers, truffles, cupcakes and other tasty tidbits for the reception racked up a sweet $750,000 tab for the nearly 500 guests, which included Seacrest, Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, and Carmelo Anthony and his wife, La La, People reported.

During the filming, they will have a second wedding party at Capitale.
