Israeli-born talent manager, writer and businessman Guy Oseary, who boasts Madonna and U2 among his clients, renewed his vows with his long-time partner Michelle Alves under a chuppah in front of a star-studded crowd of guests at the foot of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday.

Photos from the event showed the incongruous image of a Jewish prayer shawl held over the couple beneath the outstretched arms of the 30-meter (98-foot) tall statue of Jesus, and surrounded by kippah-clad A-listers, Britain’s Daily Mail reported.

Guests at the ceremony, which reportedly cost $250,000, included Madonna, Flea and Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr and Adam Clayton of U2, P. Diddy and Cassie, Noel Gallagher and Paul Oakenfold.

Oseary and Brazilian-born model Alves have four children together. Just before the ceremony, Oseary posted on Instagram, “Today is a special day in my life.. My marriage to my Brazilian princess.”

The Israeli-born Oseary’s Untitled Entertainment manages the likes of Demi Moore, Lucy Liu, David Caruso, and others. Oseary also manages Madonna, and he directed her concert in Israel last year.

One of the chuppah holders was actor Ashton Kutcher, who runs several start-ups and an investment fund together with Oseary.
