Hearst Castle 30th Birthday Party

On the heels of the third anniversary of entrepreneur Joe Lonsdale’s latest and greatest software venture, Addepar, it seemed only fitting that the company celebrate this milestone (along with Jon’s 30th birthday) like a king—an American king—and in an American king’s castle. Next stop, Hearst Castle!

William Randolph Hearst, whose life and palatial estate were the inspiration behind Citizen Kane, never had a laser light show, but that’s probably because he never hired King Dahl Event Design of Los Angeles. In addition to the impressive lighting décor, King Dahl deserves a standing ovation for bringing a moveable feast to the most famous mansion in America. DJ Kevin Doja traveled all the way from San Francisco to keep party guests dancing into the wee hours. And all this splendor for a young man whose name is not yet as familiar as Hearst’s.  But give him time – after all, he’s only thirty!
