Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola Each Receive $500,000 in Compensation.
In the month of June in 1993, Mariah Carey tied the knot with Tommy Mottola, who had previously worked as an executive for Sony Music. Prior to founding his own record label, Tommy Mottola worked for Sony Music. The ceremony was really classy, and it was natural that a princess should preside over it. The newlyweds said their vows to one another in the Episcopal Church of St. Thomas in Manhattan, which is located on Fifth Avenue.
Mariah was moved to such a degree by Princess Diana’s wedding to Prince Charles that she decided to pattern her own wedding after the one that took place between the royal couple. Carey’s off-the-shoulder gown with the 27-foot-long train and the heirloom replica tiara that she wore together created the illusion that she was a princess.
