Fake German heiress sentenced to 4-12 years behind bars Anna Sorokin, the German con artist who passed herself off as a wealthy heiress to swindle banks, hotels and even close friends as she lived out a high-society, Instagram-ready fantasy in New York, was sentenced Thursday to four to 12 years in prison. The 28-year-old, who had played with her own tabloid image during the trial by wearing stylish dresses to court, looked despondent as the verdict was announced. She pressed her hand to her face and squeezed her eyes shut, appearing to hold back tears.

Rachel being the daughter of a beauty mogul, and Ken being a financial analyst, everything about the celebration was decadent.

But planning this massive event is not without stress, and tensions erupt between Rachel's opinionated mother Jean and the bride-to-be.

When discussing cake with the wedding planner specially hired for the event, Rachel says she wants a four layer cake. But her mother soon takes over the conversation and demands that the cake be bigger, and at least five layers.

The wedding planner finds a common ground by suggesting to create a 'dummy' cake as part of the wedding's decoration, which would be incorporated to the big cake.

'I can accept that, but it would have to be a big mock-up for the bottom,' Jean says.

Later, when Rachel goes to try on her wedding dress with her mother, Jean finds an issue with the train of the dress selected by her daughter, which is encrusted with 6,000 crystals.

'I think we should add more Swarovski crystal at the end,' she says, 'it will make it more stunning.'

Immediately Rachel seems worried by her mother's request. 'This is very very stunning' she objects, pulling lightly on the dress, 'But, I mean, since we're going all out, might as well...' she concedes.

'For the wedding it's not just for the couple, but also the family,' Jean's friend later explains, 'And Jean, she's 100% [sure] that she was to be involved in everything.'

Rachel and Ken indeed went 'all out' while planning their big day.

The couple splashed on several pre-wedding photoshoots, posing in lavish hotels and even for an under-water themed-picture. All the pictures were later showcased on the day of their wedding.

Everything about the celebration was decadent, starting with Rachel's bachelorette's, which was organised by her friends.

In the documentary, we find out that Rachel's bridesmaids have rent a 'real' mermaid to entertain at her bachelorette.

The party took place at Rachel's parents multi-million poolside pad. All bridesmaids wore mermaid tails and jewels and took some pictures with a professional photographer for the event while the ladies munched on  finger food by a private caterer.
