Ron Book spends $1 mil on wedding of 'Daddy's princess'

1689_large ICYMI: The wedding of lobbyist extraordinaire Ron Book's daughter, Lauren, was featured on WEtv's Plantinum Weddings on March 8.

She married golfer Kris Lim on June 7, 2008 in front of 600 guests at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, according to the show. The episode was billed this way: "A half-million dollar budget gets blown out of the water when Daddy's Princess gets every wedding wish she ever desired." In fact, the final price tag came to $1,000,500. (Book, who has got one of the longest client lists in Tallahassee, has reported earning twice that in just six months.)
