Tiffany Trump Was the Flower Girl at a Las Vegas Wedding That Was More Unusual Than You’d Think
It turns out Tiffany Trump, a 24-year-old law student, isn’t too old to act as flower girl — at least when it comes to the wedding of two of her closest friends and fellow socialites.
The younger Trump daughter took part in one of the most talked-about weddings of 2018 so far. These are the details of their unusual wedding, including Tiffany’s role (page 5). Not everyone took part, and some celebrities even threw shade at the new happy couple (page 6).
The wedding was between two platonic … friends
Tiffany and friends took a weekend off from school to celebrate a birthday in Las Vegas. As many Vegas vacations go, the weekend ended with a spontaneous wedding. This one was even less conventional than most Vegas weddings.
Quentin Esme Brown, daughter of the late real estate executive Harry Joe Brown Jr, married Peter Cary Peterson, a former star of the short-lived reality show “NYC Prep.” The bride wrote a heartfelt Instagram to celebrate her union with, “The person who never turned his back on me and vice versa.” However, the similarities to a conventional marriage ended there.

They plan to have a sexless marriage
Brown explained in a since-deleted Instagram post that she and Peterson had talked of marrying for over a decade but had never pulled the trigger. They two best friends have never slept together — and never plan to.
“Unconventional, yet unconditional,” she captioned a separate Instagram marriage announcement, “P.S. We have never had sex. It’s pure friendship.” When Instagram trolls questioned the newlywed’s future as well as what they plan to do about kids, Brown responded, “i believe in adoption. And wish to … the only important part is the seriousness of our vows.”

They’ll be sleeping with other people
Brown and Peterson made clear they are not romantically involved and they’re dating other people. They plan to do so throughout their entire marriage. Peterson confirmed that they “have never been romantically involved,” while Brown said that she and Peterson “are still dating others and will continue to seek love in all forms.”
“We are just each other’s hearts and wish to begin our journey towards evolution, because the more we face reality, the more we can see that there is no right or wrong,” Brown said.

They got married in Las Vegas
The newlyweds did hold up one Vegas tradition: they decided to get married only hours before the actual ceremony. While they claimed that they made the decision over breakfast rather than cocktails, it was a spontaneous, in-the-moment affair nonetheless.
Brown and Peterson married in Las Vegas’ A Little White Wedding Chapel, the site of many infamous quickie marriages. Frank Sinatra married Mia Farrow in 1966 and Britney Spears married Jason Alexander at the chapel in 2004.

Tiffany Trump was the flower girl
The wedding day buzz has centered around an even more famous heiress who was present: Tiffany Trump. The Georgetown Law student acted as the couple’s “flower girl” and, per social media, appeared to be tossing petals out of a Tiffany & Co. bag.
Trump’s weekend in Sin City wasn’t originally planned around the happy couple, but rather was intended to celebrate Andrew Warren. Warren, a fellow “Rich Kid of Instagram,” wasn’t too happy about the impromptu marriage — which he made painstakingly clear.

Not everyone was thrilled with the wedding
Andrew Warren, the designer of fashion line Just Drew, wanted to make clear that the wedding was “not something I want people [to] think I’m a part of right before fashion week with my brand.” Warren invited 40 friends, Trump among them, out to Las Vegas to celebrate his birthday.
“I just think some of my friends like Abigail Breslin, EJ Johnson, Reya Benitez, and many others being mentioned didn’t really want to be associated to what seemed like a Vegas Wedding,” he said to Vanity Fair via email. “I think it was nice of Tiffany to be a part of it but she really had no plans to be in Vegas for that. Happy for them even though I think it’s classless to do on someone else’s celebration weekend … but I just want to be clear a lot of people don’t want to be associated … Some people just need attention though and that’s fine, just don’t try it on my celebration weekend.”

An expert thought the marriage was a great idea
Licensed therapist Susan Gadoua claims she has yet to meet another couple with the same type of marriage as Brown and Peterson. “We don’t need to get married for any of the reasons we used to,” Gadoua said. “Once you’ve got everything else in place, it is like the cherry on top.” Gadoua writes about different types of marriages that compliment people’s lives, including what she calls “parenting marriages.”
“Basically, rather than being an emotion-based marriage, it’s a purpose-driven marriage, which is kind of a throwback to how we used to marry before the industrial revolution,” Gadoua said. While Brown and Peterson didn’t marry to parent kids, Brown did relay one of the purposes she believes their union will fulfill. “I am confident my husband and I will break some walls down,” she wrote on Instagram.
