Sargis Karapetyan, the son of Armenian billionaire Samvel Karapetyan (who is listed as the 28th richest man in Russia by Forbes) wed 25-year-old Georgian beauty Salome Kintsurashvili at an ultra extravagant wedding ceremony at the Safisa banquet hall in Moscow earlier this week.

The lavish wedding is estimated to have cost more than US $2 million, and featured a never-ending backdrop of lush flower walls, towering centerpieces, and an over-the-top, nine tier cake. Over 500 guests were in attendance—including Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan—and were serenaded by Maroon 5; the band was reportedly paid over US $500K to be the wedding band for the evening.

The blushing bride danced the night away with family and friends wearing three stunning wedding gowns, including a long-sleeved number signed Elie Saab Haute Couture. The custom wedding gown sparkled with thousands of hand-sewn crystals and was paired with a glittering Tiffany tiara. The bride also opted for a traditional Armenian bridal dress, and a lace, off-the-shoulder gown by Alessandra Rich. See photos from the lavish nuptials below.
