As wedding planners, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t at least acknowledge the billion dollar wedding that took place this past week in Russia. The groom, Said Gutseriev, the son of a Russian oil tycoon, and the bride, Khadija Uzhakhova, a dental student, took extravagance to a whole new level with their wedding. The bride and groom transformed Moscow’s opulent banquet venue, Safisa, with walls of floor to ceiling fresh flowers, and stunning lighting displays all for their 600 guests who were delivered to the venue by a fleet of Rolls Royces. But the decor wasn’t the only show-stopper. The bride wore a custom jewel encrusted Ellie Saab gown that weighed more then 25 pounds! And as only a billion dollar wedding can, the entertainment for the night consisted of live performances by Jennifer Lopez, Sting and Enrique Iglesias. We will all have to stay tuned for part 2 of these extravagant nuptials as there is rumored to be a second reception taking place in London very soon.
