Just when we think we’ve seen the most extravagant wedding possible (remember this Lebanese affair?), another lavish couple outdoes themselves. The latest pair to take the title are from two of Russia’s wealthiest families. Lolita Osmanova is the daughter of energy tycoon Eldar Osmanov and Gaspar Avdolyan is the son of millionaire businessman Albert Avdolyan.
Instead of hosting their nuptials in Russia, the Los Angeles-based pair chose the iconic Dolby Theater, which you might recognize as the same venue the Oscars take place at every year.
When guests approached the event (feeling like movie stars, no less) they were greeted by stairs lined with fresh white roses, thousands of candles and classical violinists. Reports say the floral budget was a whopping $500,000.
Even though the ceremony featured an all-white palette, for the reception the couple chose vibrant and striking red roses, with deep purple accents. The centerpieces on the tables were sky-high and almost steal the attention away from the ceiling covered in chandeliers and sparkling lights.
The bride wore an off-the-shoulder dress that was designed by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad for the ceremony. The gown was covered in elaborate beading, jewels and a delicate floral pattern. The long train and veil were gorgeous, but looked quite heavy, which might be why she slipped into a sleek 1940s-inspired dress with a sparkling headband for the reception.
The couple cut into a 10-tier wedding cake that was adorned with gold layers and surrounded by more candles and flowers than most people have at their entire wedding.
One thing almost no other wedding has to offer: A live performance by Lady Gaga. Since the pop star has performed at the Oscars before, it’s safe to say she felt right at home on this stage.
Jason Derulo also performed his hits during the evening, along with a symphony orchestra, a ballet troupe and more dance ensembles. Reports say the bill for the entertainment was in the $2 million range.
We have a hunch guests left the nuptials entertained and, most likely, a little bit envious. Wouldn’t you?
