Expansion always, in all ways—even when it comes to love.
Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis celebrated their romance by breaking a Guinness World Record on Thursday. The Million Dollar Listing New York broker and his fiancée teamed up for the World’s Largest Champagne Tasting in New York City, hosted by the Knot. And in the process, it ended up in the Guinness World Records book. At the bash, 518 attendees gathered to sip on three different varieties of champagne and take their place in the history books.
“To celebrate this milestone and Valentine’s Day, we invited everyone who loves love, including many of the couples we serve today and throughout our 18-year history, to raise a glass and break a Guinness World Records record for the World’s Largest Champagne Tasting," Dhanusha Sivajee, executive vice president of marketing at The Knot tells The Daily Dish.
Ryan popped the question last year in an over-the-top proposal in Times Square in September. Shortly after she said "yes," he opened up about what he's learned from his relationship in a essay for Glamour.
"At the end of the day, relationships should be your serenity and not add more stress to an overwhelming workday. I've discovered that most of our arguments are about insignificant things. I think a good relationship requires work, excellent communication, compromise, and mutual respect," he said.
"Emilia and I have grown to appreciate our differing points of view," he continued. "If you respect individuality, it is easy to agree to disagree with your significant other; nobody will ever agree on everything if being truly authentic."
