Under the billowing white canopy of a tent assembled on Innis-brook’s Harstan Lawn, a scarlet carpet, dividing 250 chairs, ran to an altar waiting for $20,000 worth of red Colombian roses en route from Miami—the Tobóns’ gift.
Dozens of Boston ferns sat atop white Greek columns along the perimeter of the tent between white latticework, offering privacy for the ceremony. Dozens of spotless two-bedroom condos lay in wait, each room fully stocked with wines, liquors, snacks—everything. All on the government’s tab, but more than covered by operation profits.

Astrid stood on the balcony, breathing in the luxuriant scent that wafted up from the rose gardens below. From her vantage point at the Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel, she had a sweeping view of the city. To the east, an impossibly romantic-looking fort perched on a mountaintop, while in the distance the tight clusters of vibrant blue buildings that made up the medieval city of Jodhpur gleamed in the early-morning light.
The Blue City, Astrid thought to herself. She had heard somewhere that all the houses here were painted this shade of cobalt because it was believed to ward off evil spirits.
The color reminded her of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s estate in Marrakech—the Majorelle Gardens—much of which was also painted a distinctive shade of blue, the only house in an entire city of rose ochre allowed by decree of the king to be painted a different color.
