This is what happens when a billionaire marries a social media queen

Published 25th Sep 2017 - Spoiler alert: it’s #goalsAF



A little wed-spiration to brighten your morning, courtesy of this couple’s brilliantly bonkers and utterly over-the-top wedding.

Karen Karapetyan, son of an Armenian property billionaire, recently married social media star Lilit Karapetyan, and their wedding was the definition of a luxurious extravaganza.

The couple said their ‘I do’s in a celebration that featured endless, endless fresh flowers, a 15ft wedding cake, fireworks on the dancefloor… And more. A whole lot more.]

This couple are charging guests to attend their wedding

The bride dazzled in a shimmering couture wedding gown by Zuhair Murad, which she paired with a bouquet of white peonies. She walked down an aisle adorned with endless displays of pink, purple and cream blooms (and a suspended floral arch, naturally), meeting her groom at the end, where they exchanged their vows in front of 200 guests.

The ceremony took place at the Armenian Apostolic Church in Moscow, with the after-party at local hot-spot Safisa - which was utterly transformed for the celebration, with flowers descending from the ceiling. And for those of you who might be concerned that there was no Insta-friendly flower wall area - look a little closer. There isn’t a discernible photo-specific area because the wall in its entirety was covered in blooms.

Naturally, the bride slipped into something a little more dancefloor-friendly for the reception - although that gown still looks utterly jaw-dropping to us. Don’t you agree?

Six women wore the same dress to this wedding

The wedding cake featured four tiers and was a mere 15-ft tall, decorated with more flowers and sugar stars - which were a pretty match to the jewellery the bride was wearing.

Even the first dance was incredible, with the newlyweds surrounded by twinkling fireworks as they twirled across the floor, hand in hand.
